Toscafire is sired by Afire Bey V (for 10 years the leading sire at the U.S. Nationals). His dam, Matoskette, was Scottsdale Reserve Champion in English Pleasure. She is by Zodiac Matador who is a three-time U.S. National Champion in Park. Matoskette’s tail female line includes Mi Toska, who was a Canadian National Champion Mare and U.S. National Champion in Pleasure Driving. Mi Toska also earned a U.S. National Top Ten in English Pleasure and Mare Halter. Toscafire is a full brother to Afire’s Vision (who currently stands at Battaglia Farms). Toscafire has a very impressive pedigree without a doubt. He also has an equally impressive show record and is siring foals that are following in his footsteps. Toscafire was last shown in 2010. He

stayed home in 2011 to breed mares. He has multiple regional titles – Top 5’s, Reserve’s and Champion’s and ended the 2010 show season with a Canadian National Top 10 Award. Toscafire has been shown Park, Costume, Side Saddle, and Show Hack. He has a very gentle disposition and is extremely easy to be around. Under saddle he has a BIG motor with an even bigger heart.

Toscafire’s son, Sparkssafire, earned 2 Canadian

Top 10 titles in 2011. Toscafire has foals with Scottsdale and regional titles. One of his purebred foals has had a very successful endurance career. To date, Toscafire has sired 9 foals. He has proven himself as a show horse and as a sire.

far from your home? Would you know where to go? When you arrived at the hospital, where would you put your extra clothes? Where would you shower? Where would you wash your clothes? Who would you turn to for help? These and many other questions are all answered daily by the volunteers at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Spokane. Families are provided temporary lodging, comfort and support while their children are accessing medical services. These basic needs are met while they help their children overcome their medical struggles. The House provides a consistent and caring helping hand, lessening the mental and financial strain on the families. It allows them to focus on the most important thing ... supporting their children. Let us share a story, from a mother, with you thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;100 Miles Away From Home but Never Alone.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In February 2010, 10-year-old, Alexis Marie, called Lexi by her friends, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. After the diagnosis, Lexi spent a month as a patient at Sacred Heart Medical Center and when released found refuge with her family at the Ronald McDonald House of Spokane while undergoing three months of life-saving chemotherapy. After the diagnosis, Adriana, Lexiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, moved to Spokane to be by her side. Lexiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad, Brian, had to continue to work to support the family of four, while younger sister Ali continued with preschool. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a place to sleep and were sickened with worry. But the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation changed when they arrived at the Ronald McDonald House. Lexiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents found much more

than a place to rest, they found a place where they could find strength as a family and could be together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alexis and I felt so welcome and safe while staying there. Our favorite memories of the House were the bonds I saw forming between Lexi and the other children battling cancer. My daughter showed so much compassion for all the other children, especially the younger kids,â&#x20AC;? said Adriana. Adriana also realized that through it all she was not alone; she was supported, cared for, and encouraged by other mothers who were experiencing the same anxiet- 2011 Ambassador of Goodwill for the Gallop, Carmen ies as she. For Lexi, her home was having fun before last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100 miles away, but she never felt event began! alone. Lexi knew she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone fighting cancer; she had the support of a huge new family, the Ronald McDonald House family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are forever grateful to the House. When a child is ill, it is the entire family who battles the disease. Lexi never felt alone in her battle. She knew that her battle was our battle. We fought together and we won,â&#x20AC;? said Adriana. Today, Lexi is 11 years old and has been diagnosed cancer-free. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ---Adriana Stories like the one above are the reality for a multitude of families living at the Ronald McDonald House. Fortunately, people like you, support the mission when participating in the Gallop Event! Ronald McDonald House Charities of Spokane is indebted to Gallopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sponsors, Donors, Committee Members, and Stallion Owners for their support in both the RMHC mission and Gallop Auction. You can be a part of the RMHC family. You can make a direct impact on the life of a child today.

WHY NO FARMER POETRY? Cowboy poetry is one of my efforts. I do my best but sometimes when I am in the corn belt or entertaining the Western Pistachio Growers, I’m asked why I don’t do more farmer poetry? I try to explain to them that cowboy poetry is about wrecks; horse wrecks, cow wrecks, sheep wrecks, dog wrecks, financial wrecks, Tyrannosaurus wrecks, the neverending wrecks. For instance, when someone tells a story about a horse buckin’ over the haystack and dumping the cowboy into the pig pen, or a rancher missing a cow in the chute then getting run over while he’s trying to check her teeth, or the vet wrapping the calving chain over his wrist then looping the other end over the nearly-born calf’s feet followed by the inevitable escape, or the mama cow chasing the cowboy around the pickup and through the cab whilst he tries to ear tag said calf…everybody listening is laughing their heads off! For some reason a cowboy getting bucked off or run over, plowed down, drug through the cattails, trampled, stomped or butted, is funny! I’m not sure why. I can think of two

possible explanations; #1 -The Cowboy Mentality and #2 - the Cow herself The Cowboy Mentality is an attitude, a view of life, an ability to focus so intently on one thing that other parts of the picture are blocked out. Like he’s standing on a railroad track at night, concentrating on the headlamp so hard he does not see the locomotive behind it! This tunnel vision Cowboy Mentality makes it feasible for cowboys to step right into an obvious trap that others would normally avoid. It often starts with the cowboy saying, “Whataya mean I can’t ride that horse?” or “Go ahead and let off on the squeeze, I think I can hold her!” or “Don’t worry, dogs really like me.” Then you mix this mentality with #2, the Humble Cow. There is a fine line between the “Fight or Flight” behavioral mechanism in the bovine. But the cowboy always seems to be straddling the divide with a leg on either side when the cow makes her decision, Fight or Flight? Either way the cowboy gets run over so it all works out. Thus, it’s the idea that one of God’s dumbest creatures seems to regularly outwit our cowboy Hero, and that makes it funny! On the other hand, farmer wrecks are always about machinery. Hanging your Carhartt coverall sleeve in the PTO and being stripped naked in a nanosecond or getting run down by a robotic controlled chemical spraying drone, doesn’t really illicit large guffaws. So that’s why I don’t write more farmer poetry. Of course, there’s always the one about the farmer’s daughter!

Ann Kirk’s - Backing For A Great Stop - Part 2 Happy New Year for 2012! I am looking forward to working with many old friends this coming year and to making lots of new ones as we come together on our continuing journey with the horse. Working with and learning from horse people is one of my favorite passions in this life and I look forward to meeting and greeting many in this coming year. So where were we? Last article, I left you working on ground work for teaching and improving the backup on your horse. But, the reason we work on the ground is to make it easier and safer to teach from the saddle. So, if you are ready and have done your homework, you are ready to mount up and teach the backing lesson from the saddle. Get your mount caught up, groomed up, tacked up and warmed up and let’s get started. This exercise from the saddle is the same sequence you use from the ground. It is known as Hip/Shoulder/Shoulder because you move the hip over while stopping the near shoulder, then step the far shoulder back. Your horse should already know the Hip/Shoulder part from all the hip disengagement you have already practiced. By building upon a maneuver the horse already understands, it makes it easier to

get the right answer. And by teaching it one-reined, it is easier to avoid the bracing that is common with two. Keeping this Hip/Shoulder/Shoulder sequence in mind helps you keep focused while you work and your focus produces clearer cues which, in turn, make it easier for your horse to understand and respond correctly. When you think about the next step before actually applying pressure, your body makes subtle changes that the horse picks up on and then he is prepared to make a quicker, lighter response. To begin this lesson, warm your horse up with some walking and/or trotting serpentines. Then work on disengaging the hips in sets of 20 reps on one side, then 20 on the other. As you pick up on the rein, take note of how much pressure it takes to get the correct response. You are wanting your horse to stop his forward movement, pivot on the inside shoulder while stepping the required hip over on a light cue. He should come to a complete stop and wait until you ask him to go forward again. If he walks off before you cue, immediately pick up the same rein and ask the hip to move again. Don’t get in a hurry at this step. You might need to take a few days to get the rein really connected to the hip for a light, quick response. By taking the slack out slowly and then adding pressure in 3 second increments, your horse will get used to responding on a light cue to avoid the increased pressure. For the really lazy horse, add a little more impulsion by bumping with both legs after you pick up the rein and ask for

the hip to move. The next step is to take the outside shoulder back. You will still be working in sets of 20. Ask your horse to walk forward, pick up the left rein and ask the hip to step over 2 steps. Release the pressure but don’t drop the rein. Pick up the slack again while keeping the rein close to his neck and thinking back. Don’t apply too much pressure and don’t put the rein on his neck; just take the slack out, add a little more and wait. His first correct response may be no more than a lean backwards at which you will release immediately to reward the thought. Work up to giving just mini-releases on the lean but don’t fully release until you get the right shoulder and foot to take a step back. In the beginning, your horse will probably think you are asking him to disengage his hip again but do not release. Keep the rein in close to the neck while thinking about the shoulder stepping back. Don’t try to force it by pulling harder but don’t give in until the horse moves back. Even if he is still moving the hip, if he steps back with the right front, release the slack. Each time, wait 5-10 seconds before asking him to walk forward again and starting over. Vary the amount of forward steps each rep. Take your time in the beginning and give the horse time to discover the correct response. If you lay the foundation carefully, it will be easy to refine it and add speed. When the horse begins to understand to step back after disengaging the hip, give a mini-release but wait for him to give to the bit before giving a full release. Gradually, you can

eliminate moving the hip first by moving the rein in closer to the neck when taking the slack out. When he is backing well using each rein individually, you can add the outside rein after the inside one to straighten his head even more. Remember to complete one step at a time. Also note that backing is strenuous on the horse’s muscles so only work 10-20 minutes at a time on this lesson without giving him a break. You can work on other forward exercises for at least 15 minutes and then you can do more backing but don’t overdo it or he will get sore and sluggish. Spread this lesson over several days and your horse will be backing and stopping great in no time. The backing and stopping exercises are also great to practice out on the trails. But that will have to be another article. So, until next time, —God Bless and stay safe, Ann Ann Kirk is available for clinics or lessons in your area. She also offers her services for evaluations.

Keeping Trails Open To Equestrians By Ken Carmichael I imagine that many of us who read the Horse Previews are active horsemen and have an interest in keeping trails open for riding. As more private land becomes developed, and public land becomes more restrictive, this issue becomes more and more urgent. The Inland Empire Chapter of Back Country Horsemen of Washington (IEBCH), located in Spokane, has a mission “to preserve and enhance the rights of responsible horsemen to use horses and mules on public land.” We do this in several ways. First, in our education program we teach and follow the seven principles of Leave No Trace (LNT) along with other subjects of interest. Second, we work with land managers providing on the ground volunteer services to design, build and maintain trails and trailheads for equestrian use. Third, we work with the various legislative bodies, and other decision makers, to ensure that the equestrian interests are protected. Fourth, we work with many land managers providing input on land issues. In addition, we must have an adequate support staff to ensure that IEBCH is a viable, legal and financially sound organization. All of the above is a big challenge but we feel it is worth the effort to ensure trails are open to us and future generations. However, to be successful requires many hands on

deck sharing the work and providing a variety of talent, time, skill and enthusiasm for the mission. Where do you stand? Are having trails open important to you? Right now IEBCH needs volunteer leaders, and workers, to help with this important mission. We invite you to join us in a major role. We are in need of leadership in specific roles such as Legislative and Lands. Support workers are needed in these areas as well as a variety of other important functions such as Education and Trail Work. IEBCH is one of 33 chapters of Back Country Horsemen of Washington (BCHW). We are affiliated with the Back Country Horsemen of America (BCHA) and are a volunteer, non-profit, 501C3 tax exempt organization. We welcome all support to accomplish our mission. Membership meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of each month. More information can be found at and If you, or someone you know, are interested in helping to keep trails open, or would like more information, I encourage you to contact: Ken Carmichael at 509-466-2225 or

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crisp winter day as I shut down Facebook, turn off my computer and head out the door to do a little face to face time with my stallions. Wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be long and it will be breeding season again and we will rapidly go from cool and calm to hot and excited while visions of mares dance through stallion heads. Oh, oh, Commander, my perlino Quarter Horse stallion, looks worried about something. His head is down and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaning against the wire fence mumbling to himself. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve

learned that when you have a horse that talks, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual to find him talking to himself. My husband does that too and as he gets older and harder of hearing he talks to himself louder! â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Commander, what are you mumbling about?â&#x20AC;? I ventured to ask. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hay! Do we have enough hay for the winter?â&#x20AC;? His blue eyes were genuinely concerned as he trotted up to me. Mares and hay were the two biggest interests of his life! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hay shortage all over the west and there just might not be any more available till harvest time!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;So just where did you hear about the hay shortage?â&#x20AC;? I knew about this and had stocked up, but how did Commander know this? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all over the internet; all the horses are talking about it.â&#x20AC;? He calmed down a bit and gave me his most intense blue eyed look. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The stallions down in Texas are really worried; no hay means hungry bellies and fewer mares to breed as no one wants more mouths to feed!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wait, just wait a minute. How can horses get on the internet?â&#x20AC;? I looked around half expecting to find a computer or Blackberry tucked in a corner. You never know what smart horses can come up with and between my stallions they were constantly surprising me.

Commander gave me another blue eye piercing look. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You humans think you invented the internet but horses have been using the Barbed Wire Internet for years before you caught on and installed it in your little computer boxes. Let me give you a little history lesson, cowgirl.â&#x20AC;? Barbed wire was invented in France in about 1860 and then popularized on the western plains of the US through the 1870s. The introduction of barbed wire in the West dramatically reduced the cost of enclosing large areas of land. This led to disputes known as the range wars between free-range ranchers and farmers in the late 19th century. When legal courts settled in favor of the farmers, it became a felony to cut a barbed wire fence to let cattle through to better grazing lands. In short time, nearly all of the open range became fenced in and under private ownership. For this reason, many historians have dated the end of the Old West era of American history to the invention and then proliferation of barbed wire fences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About that time, horses found that they could communicate through the wire by nuzzling it and sending messages along the miles of fence to listening horses along the way.â&#x20AC;? Commander continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then one very smart horse, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure he was a Quarter Horse stallion, figured out a way for the messages to go barbed-wireless. Now we horses communicate with each other all over the country.â&#x20AC;? I was stunned! Could this possibly be true? I knew that horses have their own way of talking with each other but this was truly amazing. Unless you have a horse that talks to you,

you just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know these things! â&#x20AC;&#x153;But stay tuned, cowgirl, horses have come up with an even better way to communicate! Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found that even with all the technical advancements of the Barbed Wire Internet it just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the place of muzzle to muzzle time.â&#x20AC;? Commander had a soft, dreamy look in his blue eyes now as he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the smart horses have quit spending hours huddled up against a cold, impersonal, electronic barbed wire and instead are spending more time just talking over fences.â&#x20AC;? Commander was fondly looking at the mare pasture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We dumb animals have figured out that true communication is face to face and eye to eye. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to spend time with a wire when I could be gently nibbling the neck of a mare, sharing breath muzzle to muzzle or even trading stallion horse jokes over the fence with Timer.â&#x20AC;? I was mesmerized with some of this horse logic and quietly turned my new iPhone off and slipped it in my back pocket. Then I laid down the iPad that had been under my arm and stacked my Nook that had been under my other arm on top of it. I removed the compact portable computer that was in my purse and set it aside with my earphone. Then I just started petting my great white stallion and he nuzzled me back.

Horse Power


n my early college years I took a Shakespeare class. I don’t remember much about any of the plays we studied. I was more interested in a couple of cute girls in the class. The one thing that has stuck in my mind over the years was a button our instructor wore on her lapel every day. It had the image of Shakespeare and the words “Will Power”. She was passionate about her subject. For the past several years there has been a lot of press about the many unwanted horses in our country. Those of us who are highly involved in the horse industry are rightly worried about this problem. We wonder about the security of our livelihood. We wonder if the species for which we have so much passion is in serious jeopardy.


This is not a new phenomenon. In the early part of the 20th century there may have been more horses in the country than at any other time in history. Horses are what made things tick and move. We relied upon horses for nearly all we did. With the advent of the internal combustion engine, there were many who thought the horse was done for good. He would no longer be useful, wanted or needed. “Good-bye to the hay burner and hello to the gas burner” they said. Fortunately they were wrong. Ironically, those who built the engines we rely upon so much today coined a phrase using the very species they thought they would make extinct, “Horse Power”. Every year when the newest and greatest vehicles roll off the assembly line one of the most important specifications is how much horse power they have. More horse power helps us go faster and do more work easier. The more the better! I would like to suggest another way we can use the term “Horse Power”, borrowing the idea from my old instructor’s button. Those of us who promote “Horse Power” are passionate about the species, just as my instructor was about William Shakespeare. Horses are a very important part of our culture. I was talking to a friend not long ago who asked me, “what ever possessed you to ride broncs?” He supposed anyone who

would consciously ride a bucking horse was somewhat crazy. I thought about his question and answered that it probably had something to do with the culture in which I was raised, the horse and rodeo culture of southern Idaho. Riding broncs well was something the people in the community admired. I was even given a scholarship to do it. Some of us may just have an inner sense of being drawn to the species, an unexplainable affinity for horses, like a magnet. We may hanker for some of the old ways or the by gone days. We love the smell of their breath, the softness of their muzzle, the kindness of their eye, their willingness to give us a ride. We love horses. And, no matter what way we love them, we promote “Horse Power”. So here’s to all of you who get up every day and spread the hay and scoop the poop. Here’s to those who raise babies. Here’s to those who take care of their feet. Here’s to those who help kids or handicapped people or people with mental disabilities or those who need hippotherapy


(physical therapy) with horses. Here’s to those who have equine rescue programs or try to find good homes for horses that need a career change. Here’s to those who patiently train the youngsters to overcome their fears and learn how to be contributing members of society. Here’s to those who grow food for horses and bale the hay and mill the feed. Here’s to the pharmaceutical and other companies who think enough about the horse to commit a portion of their resources to research, development and production of equine products. Here’s to my colleagues who devote their careers to the conception, birth, health, well being and soundness of the horse. Here’s to those who ride and drive and train and show and compete and enjoy horses every day of their lives, or every other day or even once in a while. Here’s to more “Horse Power”, the more the better! We are here to help if you have questions! Dr. Jed McKinlay
