he Inland Empire Arabian Horse Club is an enthusiastic, dedicated group of horse lovers who continue to excel in their promotion of the Arabian horse and their charitable efforts within the community. Over the past several years the Club has Donated well over $100,000 to the Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Spokane who provide the highest quality care for a wide range of pediatric orthopaedic and neuromusculoskeletal disorders and diseases. Our primary activities to promote the Arabian horse include its Class A backto-back shows held during the Memorial day weekend at the Spokane Fair & Expo Center. Our shows have grown in reputation and stature over the years. 2015 was our first ARABIAN HORSE EXTRAVAGANZA, which entertained a wide range of people throughout the community (standing room only). They came to watch, scream and clap for their favorite horse. Every year our membership is growing and expanding with great new ideas. We have something planned every month from farm tours to poker trail rides. Our youth group is an outstanding group of kids with a lot of talent and knowledge. They offer activities every month. The kids are always very welcoming to new youth members, so don’t be shy if you want to join. 2016 Plans are in the works for this year’s Class A back to back horse shows. The IEAHC Memorial Day Classic Show I will be held May 26th-27th & IEAHC Memorial Day Classic Show II will be held MAY 28th - 29th 2016. Ann Judge-Wegener will be one of

Riding the West By Don Dyer The Back Country Horsemen of Washington has three local chapters in and around the Spokane area. Should this article make it outside the Spokane area, I would like to remind the reader that there are other chapters around the state of Washington and they can be found online at www.BCHW.org. Now the big question is why should you become involved? I will attempt to give you several reasons; first and foremost we as an organization exist for three reasons—One is to furnish a labor force to keep trails open with physical labor. Second, by our annual dues, fundraisers, and donations, we raise money to have a part-time lobbyist in Washington to help us get the funds necessary to keep the National Forest operational to some extent. Third, by being an organization, we have a large membership by keeping our members updated as to what is happening in Washington. They are able to write letters, send emails, or make phone calls to their legislators letting them know that we are watching how they vote on the bills that affect us and our pleasures. A perfect example of this is just recently a bill went before Congress where an attempt was made to cut funding for the Recreational Trails Program. Most of us do not know that a percentage of our gas taxes go to this program. Two senators presented a bill to take that money and put it toward something else, thus eliminating the Recreational Trail Program nationwide. We were able to prevent this with thousands of emails and phone calls in less than 48 hours. Thanks to BCHW and other recreational organizations for

notifying their club members. I mentioned in the last paragraph physical labor. What kind of labor is it that we do? I will give you some examples that you may be familiar with. Members of BCHW built the arena in the equestrian area of Riverside State Park, as well as the Round Pen, and they also built a number of the holding pens in the campground before the expansion this year. BCHW members also paid for and built the obstacle course in Riverside State Park. That took three years of planning just to get the approval from the state plus the actual work. BCHW members performed a majority of the labor for the parking area at Slavin Ranch and built the bridge at Liberty Lake. BCHW members are currently involved in developing the parking area and trail system at Rustler Gulch in the Eloika Lake area. This project has been ongoing for about three years. That is just a little bit of the work performed in the Spokane area within the last couple of years. This does not include the days in the saddle clearing a variety of trails of overgrowth and downed trees. Most of this work is performed in early spring or throughout the summer. One advantage of having a large group is that no one has to do a lot of work if everyone does a little here and there. Besides work, is there another reason why you should join? I would answer that this way—do you know all there is to know about horses or riding? Is there any chance you think you might desire to learn something from someone else? Do you know where all the trails are? Would you like to learn new trails? Do you like to hang out with horse people, or people with the same interest you have? Is there something you would like to learn? Most BCH chapters have members with varying degrees of experience—people who are just beginning in horses to expert packers and excellent horsemen. Most are willing to share their knowledge, if not at a meeting, perhaps at a chapter clinic. Some clinics are for chapter members or BCHW members only. Others are open to the public with a charge and free to BCHW members. Quite often educational information or training is given at each meeting. If there is something you want to know or you need help with most of the time, you only have to ask and, if it is at all possible, you will receive the help requested. Hope to see you soon at a BCHW meeting. If you would like more information about BCHW, email me at PonderosaBCH@aol.com I will be happy to answer any questions you may have and point you in the right direction. I would like to make an update—the Ponderosa Chapter now has a Facebook page. Just sign in on your account, go to search, type in Ponderosa Back Country Horseman and it should take you right to the page. Our webpage should be up and running soon.

Ann Kirk Sensible Hoof Handling Spring is here and the horses are ready to be trimmed in preparation for riding to begin. But is your horse an easy one for the farrier or is it a toss of the coin every time he shows up as to whether your horse will be good or bad this time? You owe it to yourself and your farrier to teach your horse to handle its feet safely and calmly every time it’s needed. It’s always interesting to listen to my farrier as I hold my horses for him to work on. He tells of the horse he can do all four without even putting on a halter. And he tells of those who try to kick his head off. There are ones that the owner just tells him when and isn’t even there but the horse is so good, he doesn’t need any help to get the job done. Then there are the ones that have barely been handled, much less had their feet worked with but the owner wants him to trim and shoe them anyway. He is expected to spend the extra time to take the risks and train the horse but is not to expect any extra compensation for his time. Often, he just walks away and encourages them to get the horse trained before he will come back. The good news is teaching a horse to handle its feet is not that hard and can be done safely without the use of ropes and gadgets in a fairly short amount of time. All you need is a safe enclosure, a snaffle bit bridle and some patience. It is time well spent and your horse will get lighter in the bridle while learning this valuable lesson.

My goal is to connect

you with your horse by teaching you sensible,

hands-on exercises that will reduce frustration

Take your horse to your enclosure and put on the bridle. This may be easier said than done with some horses so if your horse needs work to get him to this phase, don’t try to skip steps in his education just to get his feet trimmed. If he is hard to catch, you may have to funnel him into a round pen, work with him to learn to be caught on cue, get control of his head, respond well to a head-down cue, etc.... But those are another set of lessons. When you feel comfortable and have the bridle on, tie the reins up out of the way. Make sure they are loose enough for your horse to turn its head around to its side or take them off if this is easily done. Then hook a 10’-12’ line to the left side of the bit. Facing the horse’s left side, pick up on the rein with the left hand. Take the slack out by moving your left hand towards the top of the hip and wait for him to step his left hind leg to the right before releasing the rein. Repeat this in sets of 10 on each side with a short pause between each step until you can move his hip easily away from you with only the pressure of the rein.

Starting with the left front foot and the line hooked on the left side of the bit, you are ready to find your starting place with the foot. Your horse may already handle its feet well for cleaning them but needs work putting them in position for the farrier. Your horse may just get impatient and tell you when it is time to put the foot down. Or you may have a horse that is scared of even having you run your hand down its leg. You need to find a safe starting point with your horse and build from there so you don’t get hurt and your horse learns what you are trying to teach him. By breaking the lesson into little steps, it reduces the struggle and you get to your goal a lot quicker. Stand facing the rear of the horse. The lead should be held in your left hand between you and the horse with almost all the slack out of the line. Run your hand as far down the leg as the horse will allow without moving. Stand up and pet the horse, letting him know this is all you wanted. Do lots of reps until you can touch the whole leg and foot. When you are ready to pick up the foot, let’s teach the horse to shift his weight off the leg and even pick it up for you. I do this by pinching the tendon just below and behind the knee gradually until the horse just starts to shift its weight to the right. Release and praise. Again, repeat until he will shift his weight and actually pick his foot up a little ways. Eventually, start to hold the foot for a couple seconds building up to holding it longer and longer. This is much easier than trying to wrestle the foot up by force. Here is the key to him not just pulling the foot away or moving off. Every time he moves off or jerks his foot away,

immediately move his hip to the right in a tight circle. I don’t mean make him go forward in a circle around you. Pick up on the lead, take his nose towards his hip and move his hip to the right in a pivot on the forehand. Have him step 4-5 times over, release, settle him and go right back to work with the foot. He will soon learn that what you are asking him to do is not hard and moving his hip over takes more effort. When you move to the back foot, it is a little different. For the left hind, hold the lead in your right hand and use your left hand to work the leg. This turns your back more to the horse and puts your legs in a better position just in case the horse would kick. By having control of the nose and the hip, you are also safer by being able to move the hind feet away in case of a kick. By using this sequence, you can advance his foot handling to any level you have in mind. Depending on your starting place, you can fix an educated horse that is just being a brat in a matter of minutes or get a scared one solid in a few weeks. With a scared one, take just one foot a day for 2 or 3 days before going to the next foot. I usually do both fronts before the backs but that is up to you. I strongly urge you to spend some time getting your horse ready for the next time his feet need done and your farrier will greatly appreciate any effort you put in. Until next time, God Bless and ride safe. Ann Kirk is available for Sensible Horsemanship Clinics or Workshops in your area.

On The edge Of COmmOn SenSe by Baxter Black, DVM

The Weather There is at least one thing that separates agricultural people from their office-working brothers...the weather. How often have you seen the local anchorman turn to the local weather girl and say, “Gosh, Marsha, that’s really good news! I’m sure getting tired of this rain!” What’s he getting tired of? Having a soggy newspaper on the porch? Having to wear his goulashes from the office to the health club? Postponing the wearing of his new all season Nikes? He’s probably not gettin’ any tireder of it than the feedlot cowboy sloggin’ through the pens in hock deep mud. Or the Iowa range hog man slidin’ his feed wagon along the bank of the north pasture. But somewhere, out beyond the cattle guard, a farmer is standing at the edge of a quarter section of winter wheat, watchin’ it rain and smilin’. A skiff of snow, a two inch rain, five days of hot and dry, a

four foot drift and minus twenty-five wind chill factor are like person to person calls to someone whose livin’ depends on the weather. When the big city weatherman’s map has a yellow sun with a smiley face that covers the Louisiana Purchase, you realize how far from nature some parts of our civilization have been removed! Great skiing weather can often be translated to baby calves on the kitchen floor, frozen water lines and chopping ice. Gentle April showers can keep tractors out of the field, chronics in the sick pen and bankers in a frenzy! Farmers and ranchers are students of the sky. They spend a lifetime lookin’ for a blue horizon or black clouds. It’s bringin’em luck; sometimes good, sometimes bad. They watch the local weather like brokers watch the ticker tape. They meet at the town cafe with neighbors to see who caught a little of the squall that blew through. They watch pasture and planted fields wash away or shrivel and die. They see fertilized, prepared soil crack and blow away or turn to gumbo. All the time watchin’ the sky. But, sometimes they win. The snow melts off, the fields turn green, the afternoon storms soaks the ground and the sun breaks through. They watch it come. They smell the weather changin’. They aren’t lookin’ at it through a window. They are truly a part of their environment. Maybe that’s why they don’t take it for granted. www.baxterblack.com

Is There Life on Horseback After the Kids Leave? By Ken Carmichael, Back Country Horsemen - Ponderosa Chapter This is NOT a test but presents some interesting questions and answers. It is a fill in the blank type questionnaire. We have transported the (insert # _______) kids for the last (insert # _______) years to (pick events: q 4-H, Pony Club q Soccer q Cheerleading q Basketball q Other ______ ________________________). Now graduation is coming up and they are off to (insert: q College q Marriage q Job q Cars q Girlfriend/boyfriend q Other _______________). The bedrooms are empty but the barn is not. They are gone and we are left with: Horse Trailer (number of horses ______________) Horses (number of _______________) Acres (number of _____________) Variety of horse gear (identify ________________________ _________________________________________________) Now it is your turn. But what do you do? Might I make one suggestion? Grab those horses and turn them into trail horses, if they are not already. There are many miles of trails to enjoy from the back of a good horse. Have you seen (check if yes) ?

These are just some of the great places to ride within about two hours of Spokane. Now you have the time to do it. So what are you waiting for? I should throw in here that these places don’t just happen. Every one of them PONDEROSA CHAPTER needs and gets help to stay open and available to equestrians. I belong to two chapters of Back Country Horsemen (BCH). We have a mission of “preserving the rights of responsible horsemen to ride horses and mules on public land.” There are many riding groups in the area. If you are interested in riding in some great areas with a group that helps keep them open, then consider BCH. See www.bchw. org about all 32 chapters in Washington or go to www. pbchw.com to learn about the Ponderosa Chapter (PBCH) in Spokane. Or you can contact me at kcarmichael2225@gmail. com.

Political Animals Krisean Performance Horses “Life With the Blue-Eyed Wonders” by Jill Smith • 15221 N. Shady Slope Road, Spokane, WA 99208 • 509-466-4612 • jillsmith4@earthlink.net Boy, what a wild west of a political scene this year, I thought, as I put down the morning newspaper and wandered outside for some fresh air. I headed for the stallion corrals as the horses with their common horse sense just always grounded me. Then I saw it. A huge sign was hung on the barn that said “Commander for Commander”! NOW what was Commander my big, white, Quarter Horse stallion up to! I charged toward his pasture to have a talk. It is a mixed blessing to have a talking horse as they seem to come with a perplexity for stirring up trouble! Commander was in an intense over-the-fence conversation with Timer, my Arabian stallion. That always meant trouble! The big blue eyed wonder was perfectly groomed and sporting a toothy horse grin that any politician would be proud of. “Soooo, Commander what’s up?” I tried to be casual but then just lost it! “And WHAT is that sign?!” “Well, I have decided to run for office in our national Horse Congress” Commander said, as he causally turned toward me. “You know, we do have a political governing body for horses akin to your political system. Ours is more farm based than farce based.” “What!? You have a national horse political system!?” I sometimes wondered just how much I didn’t know about

horses. “We have a Commander as our head horse instead of a president.” Commander patiently explained. “Don’t you think my slogan “Commander for Commander” is just SO politically catchy?! I’m a natural to win!” “I suppose you have a ‘Secretary of Stable’ too?” I said sarcastically and then from the look he gave me, I guessed I was right! “There is also a mare running for office who is after all the mare votes.” Commander continued“There has never been a Commanding MARE before. I don’t know if she can handle it. She claims we’re sexist!” “Well ...... you ARE stallions!” I said, trying not to really take a side here. “And there is the fact that many herds of horse are run by the alpha mare...” “My biggest opponent surprised us all.” Commander ignored my comment. “He’s a little Shetland guy with a really unruly forelock of hair! It would fall in his eyes if he didn’t plaster it into place with a ton of ShowSleeze Mane Hair Spray! He’s all about running the horse kingdom like a business. But even as a little guy himself I’m not sure he’s really going to help the little guy out there. And would he really respect mares?” Commander, warming to his subject, continued. “Why he shocked us all with his rhetoric about who should be our

nation’s horses! He wants to send all the Appaloosas out of the country because they have a spotted history and the Thoroughbreds have to go because there’s a race issue with them! Quarter Horses have to go due to the devaluation of the dollar, they just aren’t worth a plug nickel any more. He would also throw out Arabians just because of their ancestry.” “Well that doesn’t leave very many horses to cast a vote for him does it?” I said, trying to get a word in edgewise as talking horses can really talk! “Hmmmmm, you’re right. Maybe he’s just about sensationalism after all.” “So Commander, just what platform are YOU running on? What makes you think you could run the, er, horse kingdom?” I was still trying to take this all in, but horse sense isn’t always human sense. They do have their secrets! “Mares always like a stallion in command, so to speak.” Commander commented with his best political toothy grin. “So my campaign is based on health care for mares, well, I mean healthcare for all horses. I need the stallion and gelding vote too. I call it CommanderCare!” COMMANDERCARE (to be continued...)

Mare Power

veterinary knowledge

a g el es s horsemanship

Dr. Jed McKinlay, McKinlay & Peters Equine Hospital

Some people may feel that no reasonable person should breed a mare these days. With the advent of the ‘unwanted horse’ issue they have a valid argument. There are horses in the world today that seem to have no place. Whether they are too old, too wild, or too whatever there are those individuals who lack a place in humanity where they may serve a useful function, or so it seems. Near the end of his life the great western artist Charles M Russell wrote, “A few years ago a horse was considered kind of handy to have around. He was needed everywhere and used all ways. Uphill or down, mud or dust, he worked. They made no good roads for him. There’s not a city in mighty near the whole world he didn’t help build… Today some of these auto drivers want to kill him off to make fertilizer out of his body. Maybe I’m sentimental, but I think it’s a damned hard finish for one that has been as good a friend to man as the hoss.” Similar sentiments exist today, on both sides. I was having a nice visit the other night from a couple of friends who are probably half a generation older than I am. Each of them told stories of growing up around horses and experiences they had raising their own children that involved horses. One spoke of a pack trip he had taken with his son and some friends when they graduated from high school. The other told of an experience he had taking his family camping and the 5 year old boy riding on the back of the pack

horse hanging on to the ropes. Tender and wonderful memories that will never be forgotten. Both families had joy because of their horses. Dr. Jed McKinlay Just yesterday I had the privilege of helping a lady who had adopted an older gelding. We did a physical exam and floated his teeth as well as some lab work to make sure he had the best chance of gaining some weight back and that there were no pre-existing problems. She had 2 little boys along with her that will both have the blessing of growing up with horses in their lives. What an exceptional augmentation to video games and the internet. Real experiences to help them learn so they can face real situations in their lives. Have you ever hired a young person who has grown up around horses? It’s easy for most of us to get a little nostalgic about the bygone days and horses, but what about the future? We have some hard questions to face as citizens of this great land. What do we do with the wild horse population? What do we do with the unwanted horse? Another question we must ask ourselves is; do we need more horses? I believe we do. Sure, it’s sad that there are horses out there that don’t have an important purpose. There are answers to those

problems. We just have to have the courage to face them and make some difficult decisions. But we still need good horses. There will always be a need for the next great horse. Whether he be a horse to haul the family into the back country or win the Triple Crown, the bond between man and horse is something we should support and encourage and advocate every day of our lives. I say that because I daily witness the good things horses do for the human family. Like people, there are good horses and bad horses. Some of those bad people are the offenders when it comes to abusing animals. Those mean kind of folks will always find something to abuse, whether it’s the horse or their fellow man or whatever. Prisons are full of them, but that’s another discussion. We’ve raised a few horses over the years. They become like part of the family. Some of them are still around and others have new homes. I’ve always been grateful that our children have learned to work and accept responsibility. It brings me deep happiness to talk to their employers and hear things like, ‘We couldn’t do this without him’. I’ve always believed in mare power. Lots of exceptional equestrian athletes would prefer to ride a good mare than anything else. I think I agree with them. Great mares make the best babies too. In the last 20-30 years there have been many exciting advances in equine reproduction. We ship semen all over the world and have unlimited options and access to stallion power. We can also flush embryos out of our best mares and raise more babies from them than they could otherwise produce in a lifetime. Heck, we can still ride them and raise foals without too much interruption with embryo transfer. We’ve had some nice mares, but before I cash in I hope to own one exceptional mare. May we all have the same privilege! — Dr. McKinlay
