About the Cover: Rawhide Blackwell Quarter Horses is a full-service horse training facility catering primarily to western show horses and operated by Rawhide & Sally Blackwell. As the trainer of multiple top-5 winners at the AQHA World Show and Congress and APHA World Show, and as a NSBA judge, Rawhide has 25 years experience in the western pleasure industry. A graduate of TCU’s Ranch Management Program, he also gives back to the horseshow industry as a executive member of the Louisiana QHA Board of Directors. Recently, he has become an accredited AQHA show manager and will begin managing horse shows in 2013. Sally is a graduate of Auburn University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science. In the past several years, she has expanded her talents to include equine and horseshow photography. Visit her website at www.sallyblackwellphotography.exposuremanager.com to see a variety of her work. (see ad page 7) Together they offer services ranging from simply boarding horses to starting colts to showing on a local level to showing on a national level in addition to offering a variety of show horses and prospects for sale in a broad price range. In addition , lessons are available for $25/hr or $100/day (no charge for lessons if your horse is in training). Our specialty however, is helping our customers to excel in the showring…last year, our customers won several year end titles for novice and select western pleasure and horsemanship in the MQHA and LQHA associations. This year we are branching out into the trail classes! Also, we would like to introduce our barn manager, Laco Duran and our new assistant, Mathew Poche, who both do an outstanding job keeping our horses and facility looking their best. Rawhide Blackwell Quarter Horses is located in Loranger, LA-a small dairy community near the intersections of I-55 and I-12. The 20 acre facility boasts a new concrete and steel show barn with 14 stalls and a 150’x 250’arena. The generous turnouts and pastures have new pipe and horse-wire fencing. Visitors are always welcome to come see the facility and the training regimen. Contact us at 985-517-8787 or visit our website at www.rawhideblackwell.com Page 4

Manure ... An interesting fact ... an old history lesson .... Manure: In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before the invention of commercial fertilizers, so large shipments of manure were quite common. It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, not only did it become heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a byproduct is methane gas. As the cargo was stored below decks in bundles, you can see what could (and did) happen.

Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM! Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening. After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the instruction “ Stow high in transit” on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the vessel would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane. Thus evolved the term ‘ S.H.I.T ‘, (Stow High In Transit) which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day. You probably did not know the true history of this word. Neither did I. I always thought it was a golf term.
