Fortunately for me, I knew right away I wanted to help folks with their rural property. I have spent countless hours traveling with buyers and meeting sellers all over the Greater Spokane area, along with taking all the Land and Acreage classes offered with our Local MLS. I’m currently working towards my Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation with a goal of obtaining it in 2020! And once I was introduced to United Country Real Estate and learned of all their amazing proprietary tools to help sellers, I was excited to open my own franchise here in Spokane.

Leave no trace Ken Carmichael

Most of us are probably familiar with, or at least have heard of the Leave No Trace program. It is also known as LNT. The first thing that comes to mind is the old saying “Pack it in and pack it out.” This is a good place to start but LNT is much more than this. There are actually seven Principles of LNT. Also, LNT applies to everyone, not just equestrians. The principles apply to hikers, bikers, boaters, kayakers, snowshoers and many more. The Seven LNT Principles, and very simple examples, are: 1. Plan ahead and prepare – check the weather and trail conditions 2. Travel and camp on durable surfaces – do not cut switchbacks 3. Dispose of waste properly – remove manure from trailheads by taking it home in your trailer 4. Be considerate of others – respect private property

5. Respect wildlife – never feed wildlife 6. Leave PONDEROSA CHAPTER what you find – allow others a sense of discovery by leaving rocks, plants, archeological artifacts and other objects of interest as you find them 7. Minimize campfire impact – use existing fire rings instead of building new ones and be sure to leave them cleaned out for the next campers This is just a very quick sampling of all the great information available in the LNT program. The LNT Principles are guidelines as situations vary. This means that we must incorporate a lot of common sense as well. Back Country Horsemen (BCH) promotes, teaches and practices LNT. Our mission in short is to preserve and enhance the rights of responsible horsemen to use horses and mules on public land. We believe that LNT is a major factor in keeping access to our public lands. In fact, education is a major benefit of Back Country Horsemen membership. We have programs in chainsaw and crosscut saw certification, first aide, safety, packing and leadership. Many activities take place at the Leadership training in January and the rendezvous in March. In addition, monthly chapter meetings often include a variety of educational programs.

Sacking out Part 2—the laying on of handS By Ann Kirk

September is here and with it comes some cooler weather. But, there are still plenty of nice days to continue these lessons with your horse. We will continue where we left off last time with the sacking out process. The term “sack out” refers to a process used to get the horse to calmly accept any reasonable amount of pressure, an object or your touch. You are going to use many objects around your horse in its lifetime and you will touch the horse in places that natural instinct demands he protect. Rather than just trying to overwhelm the horse until he submits, we will go through a process that allows the horse to accept things in stages so as to build confidence and trust in what we are doing. By doing this, we not only gain the benefit of making him feel safe about the particular object we are working with at the time, but we also teach the horse how we want him to respond to any new object or touch we might eventually approach him with. This lesson is for the ‘trained’ and untrained horse. For the trained horse, this lesson can help you identify and eliminate small problem areas. If your horse is great except with ???, you can use this lesson to help them cope. For the untrained horse, it is the perfect way to create a solid foundation upon which to build your dream horse. You can follow this process to introduce any new item to your horse throughout its training.

We left off with the first touch on the horse’s face. You may find that your horse still has substantial fear and does not want to accept your touch. Take as much time as needed here. The horse must be absolutely comfortable with having his head touched and handled. A head shy horse can hurt you when you least expect it and can be very dangerous to ride. Only rarely will I touch the horse on the neck or shoulder first. In those rare cases, I use it as a starting point to get to the head. When your horse will calmly allow you to pet it between the eyes with one hand and will turn and face you when you walk away, it is time to add more hands and more places. Work your way around the head, neck, sides and rump of your horse. Don’t stay too long before walking away and approaching again. As you progress, leave at different angles from the horse and move to different parts of the pen when you walk away. Asking the horse to move his feet by turning to face you will keep him from becoming “locked up” in one place.

My goal is to connect you with your horse by teaching you sensible, hands-on exercises that will reduce frustration and make your partnership possible. You are personally invited to come and join this fun-filled, incredible journey that will make your goals a reality!

Every time you approach, it is the beginning of a new mini lesson. Every time you walk away, giving the horse a release, it is the end of that mini lesson. So you can work for as long or as short as time allows and are never in a bad place to stop. By not staying too long before moving away, you are getting the horse better and better about being approached which can be scary for some horses. A lot of horses that are hard to catch are really just afraid of being approached. We go out to get them with halter in hand and chase them, tease them, try to corner them until we can get the halter on. Then they act like they are totally comfortable with us. If training the emotions requires them to be raised some and then brought right back down, then up, then down, how many times does this standard way of catching your horse raise the emotions? Basically one time! And depending on how mad we get in the process, the emotions for both of us can get very high, stay up way too long and then only come down after we have caught the horse, (depending on how frustrated we are and how much we mistreat the horse once we’ve caught it!) So a by product of doing the approach, rub with the hands and walk away many, many times as the horse learns to accept your approaching and catching him. As you go over his body from head to toe with many times of leaving

and returning, he will probably even start following you and you will see big changes in his interest level. When he understands that you are looking for a specific response, he will do his best to find it to get more of your praise and attention. A few words of caution need to be added. Some horses show no warning signs before they bite, strike or kick. Remember, you make the final decision as to whether or not you are going to work with your horse. If you know that your horse has some dangerous areas be sure to have someone watching you or get a professional to start the horse on these lessons. You will be working from head to tail. Keep your body in a safe position. As you work toward the rear of the horse, you should pick up on signs of the horse being uneasy. Look for jumpiness, ear pinning, belly kicks, throwing the head, etc. If you see any negative behaviors, STOP and rethink the lesson before you continue. You may want to add a halter or bridle with a snaffle and lead line to have control of the nose and drive the hip away. Or you may want to use a long whip to start touching the hind legs at first to check for kicks. Whatever the case, do not put yourself in a compromising position. Another thing to note is a horse who always seems to have his hind leg cocked on the side you are on. Usually we associate this with being very relaxed but you have to look at the whole horse. If other parts of the horse like the ears, level of the head, tension of the body, etc., do not look relaxed, the cocked leg is like a cocked gun. The horse will shift its weight off of the leg so it is easier to strike if it feels the need to protect itself. Next time, we will begin to add some of our objects. You will teach the horse to ‘spook in place’ which is one of my favorite lessons for safety out on the trail or in the show arena. Until then, stay safe and enjoy your horse…….Ann For more information on Ann Kirk and her Sensible Horsemanship Programs, go to And check out the Sensible Round Penning DVD now available!

Horse PsycHology By Baxter Black, DVM

Some people are just flat good at handlin’ horses. They’ve got that good “horse savvy.” Matter of fact, there are people actually makin’ a livin’ trainin’ horses! I admire these folks’ ability and special talent. It’s always a pleasure to see a good horse workin’ right. But horses look at veterinarians like kids look at Sunday School or cowboys look at weddings. They make’m uncomfortable. Even though everybody tells ‘em it’s for their own good, they’d lots rather be someplace else. But, in the case of the horse, you can’t really blame them. Most every time I have to handle a horse it’s to stick something in him like a tube or a shot or a plastic sleeve! And, they remember you! I’ve seen horses go bug-eyed and snorty at the sight or smell of a vet truck! The only way you could give’m a shot was to sneak it to the cowboy and let him do it from horseback. Years back I went to a lecture and demonstration on “horse psychology for vets.” The gist of the whole philosophy

says it is a matter of wills. Since the horse is a social animal, each band has a pecking order. It’s not always the strongest or fastest or biggest that’s the leader. It’s the one with the most dominant personality. So every time a person meets a horse one has to dominate the other. Well, I took the schoolin’ seriously and came back ready to test my new horse psychology skills. I practiced on several “bronky” ones before I tried it out on my archenemy. He was a dark brown, non-descript, bad-headed, ill-tempered, big-footed, long-haired typical Nevada-raised feedlot slogger named Scrap Iron! In six years I had never tube-wormed Scrap Iron or given him so much as a vitamin shot! He wouldn’t let me within 20 foot of him! Following my instructions, I crouched real low and approached him. He mistook me for the farrier and let me pick up a front foot. I buckled on the one-leg hobble and stood up. He realized immediately the trick I pulled on him and promptly went into his “bad actor” routine. He ran around the corral on three legs, he reared, rolled, snorted, slobbered, kicked, fell, cussed and generally just made a fool of himself. Which, of course, was the plan. After soakin’ him like this for twenty minutes, I went over and humiliated him in every way I could think of. I tickled his flank, handled his tail, patted his belly, stuck my fingers in his mouth, nose and ears. He stood and took it, glaring at me. Then I took off the hobble and repeated the tickling, handling, patting and poking while he stood there shaking and hating me. But he did stand. I tubed him two or three times and gave him his first full series of vaccinations without a twitch, a foot up or an ear. The only restraint was a halter, my voice and his knowledge that when it was him against me, it was ME in charge. It took forty-five minutes and was the pinnacle of my horsedom. He never forgot and the times I worked on him over the years he allowed it. It was a good arrangement, I got him vetted and he still hated me. For those of you who think this little experience swelled my head, some of you’ll be pleased to know that the last time I wormed Scrap Iron, I turned my back on him and he bit me on the shoulder. I whirled around and he had this innocent look on his face. I stared at him. He smiled just a little and seemed to say. “I’m just keepin’ you on your toes, kid, so you don’t get too cocky. It’s for your own good!”

Dr. Jed McKinlay, McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital


A Keratoma is an uncommon space occupying mass that lies between the hoof wall and the coffin bone of the horse. In other words, it is an abnormal mass of tissue that develops and grows inside the hoof wall. As it grows and expands it puts pressure on the bone and causes pain, visuDr. Jed McKinlay, DVM alized as lameness. To us it would be like having a lump of tissue growing under a toe or fingernail that hurts because it doesn’t belong there, it puts pressure on the sensitive tissues under the nail and it keeps getting bigger. As the Keratoma grows and continually puts pressure on the coffin bone the bone begins to remodel and lose its strength and density. In long standing cases the bone in the specific area of the Keratoma degenerates or dissolves completely. The name Keratoma implies that it is a tumor, which it really isn’t. The mass is thought to originate at the epidermal producing cells at the coronary band or in the sole. It is an abnormal proliferation of those cells that is called hyperplastic. Hyperplasia means “the enlargement of

ge A e r c A r u o Sell Y ! D i v A D h t i w lly Successfu Sold! Stately Rancher on 9+ Acres • $585,000 • Spokane, WA

an organ or tissue (in this case the epidermis) caused by an increase in the reproduction rate of it’s cells, often as an initial stage in the development of cancer.” Keratin is “a fibrous protein forming the main structural constituent of hair, feathers, hooves, claws and horns.” So, a Keratoma is hyperplasia of the keratin producing cells in the horses’ foot. Hope that all makes sense. The reason Keratoma’s happen is not known. They may be brought on by chronic irritations, inflammation, infection, trauma or just because the keratin producing cells decide to multiply and proliferate at an accelerated rate. Most of the time they occur in the toe region, but may be found literally anywhere inside the foot or even above the coronary band. They may grow quickly or more insidiously. They always cause pain. This may be slight at first, more of an irritation, but as the size of the lesion grows so does the pain. As you can imagine, the bigger the Keratoma gets, the more pressure it exerts on the surrounding bone and hoof capsule and the more painful they become. The hoof capsule or wall is very tough and unrelenting in its’ effort to keep the bone and soft tissues of the foot organized and packed into the space God made for them. The wall is tough enough that the pressure is almost always forced toward the inside of the foot, toward the bone. As mentioned earlier the bone then responds by dissolving away to make room for the abnormal and unwelcomed tissue growth. This is a painful process for the horse to go through. It’s not always as easy as it may seem to diagnose a Keratoma. Whenever we are faced with a lame horse we begin with a good thorough exam. This includes examining the foot with our eyes, hands and usually hoof testers. Regional anesthesia or nerve blocks are often used to isolate the location of the pain. Radiographs are also used, as well as MRI in some cases to track down the source of the horses’ pain. Keratoma’s may present with some hoof wall separation that can be viewed on the sole of the foot at the white line.

There may be irregularity, separation or unevenness of the white line. Hoof wall cracks may occur. Pressure with hoof testers over the lesion should elicit a painful response, indicative that there is something inside that specific portion of the horses’ foot that is causing the pain. Nerve blocks can desensitize a certain area or region (regional anesthesia) of the foot or leg, like when the dentist numbs a portion of your mouth prior to working on a sensitive tooth. When we numb a specific area and the lameness or pain goes away we know the source of the pain is somewhere in the area that has been desensitized. X-rays will help us see any changes that have taken place in the bone of the foot. Our digital x-rays these days are so beautiful and can be viewed immediately at the horses’ side. If the cause of the horses’ lameness is still not clear the MRI offers diagnostic information about the bone and soft tissues that can’t be had in any other way. The MRI can also help us triangulate the exact position and size of the Keratoma. Once the lesion is identified it must be removed to effect a cure. This is done but removing the hoof wall overlying the Keratoma and removing the abnormal growth beneath it. This is most often accomplished with the horse standing, sedated and with local anesthesia in place. There is most often a fair amount of bleeding, so a tourniquet is applied above the foot. Following removal of the hoof wall and Keratoma the foot is bandaged, and the tourniquet is removed. In most

cases a shoe is applied to the foot to aid in support and aftercare. It usually takes 6-12 months for the defect to grow out completely, depending on how far up the foot the hoof wall resection had to go. The underlying bone and soft tissue generally heal up without complications. Keratoma’s do not often reoccur and the prognosis for returning to soundness is very good. To recap, Keratoma’s are uncommon space occupying masses that usually originate at the coronary band. As they move down the foot they grow in size and begin to put pressure on the tissues beneath them, primarily the coffin bone. The pressure exerted by their size, where there is no excess space, is painful and causes varying degrees of bone loss. Some can be easy to diagnose; others are more challenging. They should be removed surgically, and usually do not reoccur. Keratoma should always be one of the things we look for when a horse has a lameness that is isolated to the foot.
