LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
m I the only one who is completly over this weather? I think if Facebook and Twitter are any reflection of the consensus, I’d say I am not. And please, don’t get me started on that awful groundhog!
It is time to get serious about getting those horses ready to go! I am slow to be motivated this year, but have made my mind up as I finish this issue, that my horse(s) and I need some serious work over the next few weeks. I have taken more of a break this year than I think I ever have. Darn weather! We’ve been super busy around here (that could have something to do with the lack of time in the saddle too...) getting ready for the Hoosier Horse Fair. Stop in and see us in the Quarter Horse Racing Association of Indiana booth again this year. We’ll have copies there and we’ll also have copies in the IJRA, IHSRA and ITOBA booths as well as a few other places. This issue has some great information that you’ll want to save and some great articles to read when you get a few extra minutes. I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading about the Lauers and how they got their start in the horse business and then, of course, there is Bella. She has a new friend.... Until next month....think SPRING, get busy on getting those horses in shape... and Remember to count your blessings on horseback! God Bless and Ride Safe, Christa Conway

News Start Now With Fly Prevention: 5 Ways To Keep Flies Under Control Spring may be late in many parts of the country this year, but horse owners don’t want to be late with preventative fly control practices, according to Laurie Cerny, publisher of www.good-horsekeeping.com, a website devoted to practical horse care. “You don’t want to wait until it’s 85 degrees out and with humidity to match to think about fly control,” Cerny said. “Early prevention is key to having fewer flies around your horses and stable this summer.” Here are some things you can do now to be ready for fly season: 1. Harrow pastures (break up manure piles) and muck out dry lots or pens. This might also mean bringing in some new sand for areas that have been saturated with manure and urine. Stalls and run-in sheds should also be stripped of old bedding. Old manure, dirty bedding, and feces saturated soil will all attract flies and insects once the temperature increases. 2. Remove, or eliminate potential fly havens. This means anything that holds water after a rain like empty pails, grain pans, and unused water tanks. Filling in dips in pens will also help reduce places for standing water; simply raking these spots as the water dries will also help dry the area out. 3. Feed garlic, or add apple cider vinegar to your horse’s water or grain. Feeding garlic helps deter biting insects. Cider vinegar is also believed to do the same thing when added to your horse’s drinking water or grain. It can also be added to rinse water when bathing your horse, which will act as an external repellent. 4. Use fly predators. These little insects are very helpful in reducing the number of flies on your property. The key is to use them correctly and to have your first order shipped early enough in the season. Once flies have begun to hatch out, it’s more difficult to break their reproductive cycle. 5. Have barrier/repellant products stocked and ready to use before you need them. Make sure that you have fly masks and sheets ready to go before you see your first flies. When using sheets and masks from last year check for tears and rips and either mend these spots, or replace them altogether. Have at least one-month’s supply of fly spray for both your horses and for your barn on hand. For more horse care information go to www.good-horsekeeping.com.
SOUND HORSES WIN! The ONLY Joint Formula Clinically Proven To Reduce Lameness Scores, Reduce the Need For Injections, Increase Hyaluronic Acid Production Naturally, Increase Flexibility and Range of Motion And Increase Bioavailability! Feb. 28, 2013 – Indianapolis, IN - Whether it’s on the race track or in the arena, one of the most important and beneficial things you can do for your horse is offer the best in joint care and support. Just like any athlete, performance horses can have undue stress from repetitive workouts and competitions.
If you’ve tried any of the hundreds of oral joint supplements on the market, and you’ve had little to no results, you’re not alone. Many horse owners have become soured using oral joint supplements, and the argument has always been the ‘lack of absorption.’ It’s true that the vast majority of oral joint supplements have a very low absorption rate. That is also why many recommend an initial loading dose. Stomach acids and enzymes end up destroying much of the beneficial ingredients. Exciting News! There is now a superior joint formula that truly is in a class by itself. In fact, third party independent reviews have stated it is likely the most powerful equine joint supplement on the market. It’s a product that is really making a difference and has many performance horse owners and trainers excited. ULTIMATE ABSORPTION IS THE KEY! GLC 5500RX combines the patented GLC formula with Actistatin to provide your horse with the absolute best in joint care. The patented GLC formula provides all four glucosamines plus chondroitin, ascorbate, and manganese. Actistatin is an all-natural combination of ingredients that has been clinically proven to increase the absorption of glucosamine and chondroitin. In order for GLC 5500RX to be beneficial to cartilage, it must survive the digestive system, go into the blood stream and then into the synovium. GLC 5500RX is formulated to work with your horse’s natural digestive processes to vastly improve the absorption rate to the blood serum. GLC 5500RX delivery of glucosamine and chondroitin to the blood stream is clinically proven to be at a 63% absorption rate to the blood serum. All other joint supplements are measured at a 6-9% absorption rate. GLC 5500RX specifically targets the rebuilding process for joint, bone, and soft tissues while helping fight free radicals and inflammation. When taken as directed, GLC 5500RX helps maintain the health and resiliency of all joints and connective tissues. GLC 5500RX has no loading dose. GLC 5500RX has been shown to increase the natural production of hyaluronic acid (HA) to help lubricate and nourish cartilage tissue, and has been shown to increase HA volume and viscosity. It has been shown to reduce the overall pain index in equine lameness as measured by reductions in AAEP lameness scores and improvement in both ROM and flexion scores.

News Rusty Coat? Is a Copper Deficiency the Culprit? Dr. Getty’s Advice www.gettyequinenutrition.com The dark color of your horse’s coat, mane, and tail can change color. This is often attributed to exposure to sunlight. But red tips on dark manes and dark coats, particularly noticeable in bays and black horses, may be due to a copper deficiency. Fortunately, this is easy to fix. But it requires knowing the levels of copper and zinc in the entire diet. Copper and zinc need to be balanced. Too much of one can interfere with the uptake of the other. The ideal copper to zinc ratio is 1:3. To bring your horse’s diet within this level, you must evaluate everything you are feeding, including hay, pasture, feeds, and supplements. The most common mineral imbalance found in hay is too much iron combined with low zinc and copper levels. A high iron concentration can interfere with both zinc and copper absorption, making already low levels of these minerals even less available to your horse. Strive for no more than 8 times more iron than zinc.
Festivals & Concerts
The “rusting” of your horse’s hair and mane may be the tip of the iceberg. Zinc and copper are involved in many important bodily functions including red blood cell health, metabolic enzymes, immune function, and the overall health of tendons, ligaments, hooves, and bones. Go deeper than the surface – protect your horse’s overall health by assessing the mineral content of the entire diet. Juliet M.

West Nile Virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis at Record Levels in 2012: Now is the Time to Vaccinate FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 3/19/2013 - MERIAL With more than 600 cases of equine West Nile virus (WNV)1 and more than 200 cases of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE)2 reported in 2012, it was one of the worst years on record for mosquitoborne diseases.3 Besides the alarming number of equine cases, more than 5,000 cases of WNV were reported in humans, resulting in 243 deaths.3 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this was the highest on record since 2003.3
Questions: Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 817-379-6607
“Horse owners can become complacent when it comes to diseases like West Nile virus because if they haven’t seen it in their area recently, they simply don’t think it will happen to their horses,” says Hoyt Cheramie, Manager, Merial’s Large Animal Veterinary Services. “But what we saw in 2012 is that although the number of cases had declined during the past several years, it only takes one heavy mosquito season for the numbers to jump back up to record levels.”

The best way to help protect horses from mosquito-borne diseases is to vaccinate, adds Dr. Cheramie. “It simply isn’t worth taking a chance when it comes to diseases like West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis,” he says. “Both of these very preventable diseases have effects that are devastating, for the horse and the horse owner.” As the spring vaccination season approaches, horse owners should be sure to include WNV and EEE vaccinations on their schedules. Even if a horse owner has allowed a lapse in the horse’s vaccination schedule, it isn’t too late, but it does become more important which product they choose. Merial’s RECOMBITEK® rWNV-EWT showed onset of immunity to West Nile virus in naïve horses just 26 days after the initial dose in a two-dose series.4 While vaccination is the best way to help protect horses from diseases such as WNV and EEE, staying informed about the threat of equine diseases can also be helpful. Merial’s Outbreak Alert program, launched in June 2011, is a tool horse owners can use to evaluate risk, especially when traveling. The program features a website with maps indicating the presence of confirmed cases in all species, including the carriers of WNV, EEE, Western equine encephalitis, influenza, Potomac Horse fever, Equine herpesvirus and rabies. Free, printable information about each of the diseases, their clinical signs and treatments, is also available on the site. Besides the mapping and educational tools, the Outbreak Alert program offers a free alert system for horse owners and veterinarians who sign up through the site. Those who are signed up for the service receive a free text or e-mail alert when a disease has been confirmed in their geographic area. Horse owners traveling with their horses can enter

multiple ZIP codes to stay informed while on the road. Since its inception, thousands of Outbreak Alert subscribers have received messages, making them aware of the threats surrounding them. These alerts may be for equine cases, but also may include insects or other species – including humans – as they are important indicators of the presence of these diseases. “A horse can be just one mosquito bite away from becoming infected with the West Nile or Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus,” says Dr. Cheramie. “Likewise, a horse can be just one raccoon or skunk bite away from becoming infected with rabies. When horse owners recognize these diseases may exist right in their own backyards, it helps them realize the cost of vaccinating is a small price to pay for the health of their horses and peace of mind.” An additional benefit to horse owners is the “Exclusive Offers” section of the Outbreak Alert website which features special savings for members. “We know that in these tough economic times, it can be tempting to skip a scheduled vaccination,” says Dr. Cheramie. “We’re trying to do our part to help horse owners protect the health of their horses.” Veterinarians can use Outbreak Alert as a tool to help educate their clients about the threat of disease. “Too often, horse owners think because they haven’t heard about a disease in their area that it doesn’t exist,” says Dr. Cheramie. “Through Outbreak Alert, veterinarians around the country have been able to show their clients the proximity of equine diseases and stress the importance of vaccinating.” As always, horse owners should work in conjunction with their vet-

According to the American Association of Equine Practitioner (AAEP) guidelines, horses should receive at least five core vaccinations, which include protection against tetanus, EEE/WEE, WNV and rabies.5 Other vaccinations are given based upon risk, which should be determined in conjunction with a veterinarian and may include vaccinations for diseases such as Potomac Horse fever, strangles, rhino and equine influenza.6 “Horse owners have made significant investments in their horses, financially and emotionally,” says Dr. Cheramie. “Helping protect their health and well-being with an appropriate vaccination schedule is the best decision when the alternative is to cope with losing a horse or treating a horse for a preventable disease.” For more information about Merial’s vaccines, visit equinewnv.com.

Water Is the Most Important Nutrient for Your Horse FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - By Jennifer Azevedo When scientists look for life on other planets, the single substance they look for is water. Why? Because every single organism we know of needs water. For sake of the obvious, horses, like humans, can survive longer without food, than without water. Water acts as both a solvent and a delivery mechanism, dissolving essential vitamins and nutrients from food and delivering them to cells. Horse’s bodies also use water to flush out toxins, regulate body temperature and aid in metabolism. No wonder, then, water is the most important nutrient in a horse’s diet.
First, let’s discuss how a horse utilizes water systemically. Horses lose water in a variety of ways. Water loss occurs through feces, urine, respiratory gases, milk in lactating mares, and sweat. A study conducted by Thomson and Leitch concluded that horses need 2 to 3 liters of water per kilogram of dry matter intake. In the wild, horses depend on their food for the majority of their water intake. However, this is not the case for domesticated horses. Dried hay, the number one source of food for the domestic horse, contains less than 11% moisture. This is a huge systemic loss of a beneficial water source for the horse. Second, water is the single biggest resource your horse has to allow his body systems to function properly. For example, horses should produce 10 gallons of saliva, and have 30 gallons of water available for the small intestine - that is just a portion of the water requirements for proper digestion. You can see, a dehydrated horse is physically incapable of functioning to its designed potential and thus leads to system wide and digestive disturbances, including ulcers, and colic. Third, at what point is a horse dehydrated? Dehydration is simply defined as not as much water as one should have. Simple enough... but what does that mean? Dehydration actually occurs much more quickly than you might think. When dehydration occurs, the blood thickens. Therefore, the cardiovascular system has to work extra hard to get the blood around to maintain muscles and vital organs. As a result, some organs and systems are left without proper blood flow - i.e. Skin. The skin reacts and is able to tent. Tenting is when you pinch the skin and it stays in the “tent” position for a second or two before returning to flat. As you can hypothecate, when dehydration occurs, your horse, is much more likely to become injured as a result of improper blood flow. Finally, work increases the need for water by 20 to 300 percent. In the working horse, significant amounts of water are required for thermoregulation. Thermoregulation is the ability to maintain body temperature regardless of environment. An example of thermoregulation, a horse sweats to cool off. When a horse sweats, it results in fluid loss for the animal. It is very difficult to detect losses under 5%. However, at a loss of 2% there is a 1020% reduction in performance. A huge reduction in performance and we don’t even know it. This reduction can be observed in impairment in reaction time, judgment, concentration, etc. Not only does proper hydration keep your horse performing at the top of his game, it also enables him to train harder, longer, and recover faster. But... how do we maintain these proper levels of hydration? We all know we can’t make our horses drink. Or can we? A single soaked flake of hay can hold between one to two gallons of water. For an 1100 lb horse, fed 4 flakes of hay per day, that can equate to up to 8 gallons of water per day just from their feed. In short, by soaking hay, we are supplementing the most important nutrient of all... water. Often recommended by veterinarians as a preventative treatment, soaking dry feed or hay in water increases the overall health of a horse by significantly reducing excess sugars and commercial contaminants while naturally increasing the horse’s hydration. With the creation of The Soaker, Jennifer Azevedo has standardized hay soaking. Made in the USA, The Soaker is a nonelectric automatic hay and feed soaker that is a timed, portable, self-contained unit that only requires a pressurized water source to run. The Soaker will fill, soak, and drain automatically leaving your horse’s food cleaned and hydrated every time like clockwork. http://www.healyourhay.com

FETCHING BEAUTY PULLS UPSET IN OKLAHOMA FUTURITY
Owned by Irene Velasquez of Ulysses, Kan. and trained by Verle Bohner, Big Boi used a late rally to score under David Brown. Away from the starting gate, Big Boi normally takes a number of strides to get his momentum going and his Oklahoma Derby run was no different. Once into stride the 3-year-old moved to the front with 100 yards left then drew away to the winning margin, crossing the line in :17.32 seconds. The 5-2 second choice in the wagering, Big Boi paid $7 to win, $3.60 to place and $3.80 to show. Last First Kiss rallied in to second and returned $9.60 to place and $6 to show. Charvet was third and paid $11 to show. The coupled entry of Llano Cartel and Colby Cartel was the 8-5 wagering favorite. Llano Cartel led until passed by Big Boi, then fading to sixth. Colby Cartel came on late to gain fourth.
OKLAHOMA CITY – The historic Oklahoma Futurity had its 2013 renewal Saturday night at Remington Park with Fetching Beauty pulling an upset victory at 10-1 odds. Owned by Alma Chavez of Chicago and trained by Sacramento Chavez, Fetching Beauty made the lead in the final yards and pulled away to win by a half-length under Victor Olivo. A 2-year-old filly, Fetching Beauty improved from her non-winning time-trial performance two weeks ago according to Olivo. “She broke pretty good. I thought it was going to be hard but she gave it all she’s got,” Olivo noted. “She ran a little scared in the trials but was much better tonight.” Fetching Beauty finished a fast-closing second in her trial to Sassy Spit Curl but managed a timing worthy of qualification to the Grade 2, $325,000 Oklahoma Futurity. The oldest futurity in American Quarter Horse racing began in 1947. Fetching Beauty was in contention throughout the 300-yard Oklahoma Futurity, before running down front-runners Sassy Spit Curl and JJ Hitman in the final 100 yards. She crossed the finish in :15.279 seconds over a fast track. The backers of Fetching Beauty were paid handsomely with $22.60 to win, $12.60 to place and $5.80 to show. JJ Hitman paid $9.40 to place and $5.20 to show. Royal Rythm was up for third and paid $4.20 to show. Sassy Spit Curl finished fourth. Swingin Debut, the top qualifier for the Oklahoma Futurity was the beaten 5-2 wagering favorite, running sixth. Bred in California by John Andreini and Vince Genco, Fetching Beauty is a daughter of No Secrets Here from the Mr Jess Perry mare Jess Racy Eyes. Her initial career victory in graded stakes company earns her $130,000, increasing her total earnings over just two races to $131,910. Fetching Beauty earned all of her connections their first victory in the Oklahoma Futurity which has now been contested nine times at Remington Park.
BIG BOI CONTROLS $136,000 OKLAHOMA DERBY
The large sorrel gelding Big Boi continues to grow into his body and his potential as he roared to victory in the Oklahoma Derby, winning by three-quarters of a length.
Bred in Oklahoma by Velasquez, Big Boi is by 2003 World Champion Oak Tree Special and from the Corona Cartel mare Bosanova Baby. The Oklahoma Derby win was the third from seven career attempts for Big Boi and he picked up a first-place check of $54,400 to bump his lifetime money to $346,311. Big Boi provided Velasquez and Bohner with their first Oklahoma Derby wins at Remington Park, where the race has been contested consecutively since 2006. Brown now enjoys a rare double in the race in Oklahoma City. He was the trainer of 2009 winner Spit Curl Diva and now has ridden Big Boi to victory, becoming the first person to have wins has both a trainer and jockey since the event has been held at Remington Park.
IMFLASHINTHECHICKS WINS RICHEST OKLAHOMA PAINT HORSE FUTURITY
Imflashinthechicks was a popular and convincing winner of the 50th renewal and richest-ever running of the Oklahoma Paint Horse Futurity. Of the record, $107,600 purse, $41,488 went to Shirley Wheeler of Boynton, Okla. who is the owner and breeder. The gelded son of SF Royal Quick Flash from the Game Patriot (qh) mare Game Chicken, broke inward but winning jockey G.R. Carter only had to straighten Imflashinthechicks for an in-hand three-quarters of a length win. Trained by Luis Villafranco, Imflashinthechicks raced 300 yards in :15.355 seconds as the 1-2 wagering favorite to pay $3 to win, $2.80 to place and $2.20 to show. There was a dead-heat for second-place between Situation and Coal County Line. Situation paid $2.80 and $3.80, while Coal County Line paid $2.60 and $2.80 to show. Imflashinthechicks won a non-wagering training race at Remington Park on March 1; was an emphatic winner of his trial race as the fastest qualifier on March 8, and then strolled for another win tonight to make his record a perfect two- for-two with total earnings of $44,788.
LAUS DEO WINS SPEEDHORSE/GRAHAM FARMS PAINT & APPALOOSA DERBY
Laus Deo won the Grade 1, $62,215 Speedhorse Graham Paint & Appaloosa Derby on Saturday night and began her three-year-old racing season much like she began her racing career last year as a two-yearold. After winning her trial race by just a nose, Laus Deo was the second-fastest qualifier but was a convincing winner in the final, despite winning by just a head-margin under Kenny Muntz.
News The daughter of Awesome Chrome surged late to record the big win by a small head-bobbing margin. Trained by Eddie Lee Willis, Laus Deo was the 3-1 wagering choice, paying $8.20 to win, $4.20 to place and $3.40 to show. Laus Deo won the $97,000 Oklahoma Paint Horse Futurity last year for Caddo, Okla. owner Joni Beth Willis, the wife of the winning trainer. Laus Deo covered the 350-yard derby distance in :17.482 seconds. Bred in Oklahoma by Marion Hoskin, Laus Deo is from the Texas Hero mare Shero. She has now won four of seven lifetime races and all of her wins have come at Remington Park. The derby winner’s share of $23,647 increases her overall bankroll to $81,947. Honky Tonk Podie finished second and paid $8.20 to place and $6 to show. Hesa Sweet First Down ran third and paid $3.80 to show.

HOOVES -- how to get harder feet? Fairweather Posted 2013-03-29 9:26 AM (#6688167) Posts: 11054 Location: East Tennessee I know biotin helps with condition and pliability. Methionine helps with growth. I have seen much better condition of cracks,etc with flax. But my question ---- is there anything that can be fed for making hoofs tougher or harder??? The reason I ask is where we show at there’s big gravel in the parking lot. We park in the grass but there’s no way to avoid the gravel going to the pen to warm up or run. Usually first trip through, I go to the warm up and then go run. If I have to make a second trip on the gravel, I can feel him start to get ouchy even on dirt--- this is even at the end of 6 weeks where he has growth. He won’t be off the next day. I know turpentine will harden their feet, but I have to wonder if it doesn’t sink in and get into the bloodstream somehow. He’s already on Total Equine feed, flax, and Remission which all promote good feet. He’s wearing New Balance shoes which are wider. He’s a big horse with nice big feet. He’s just ouchy. I wonder if feeding Cipex that promotes circulation in the hoof would be a better option. annemarea “Drank the Kool Aid” Location: Iowa, LA The one thing I’ve learned that helps growth the most is having them barefoot. I’ve tried all kinds of supplements, magnets, etc, but nothing worked like pulling the shoes did. If that’s not an option the only other thing I’d advise is to look long and hard at the NSC of all things (grass, hay, feed, supplements) your horse is consuming. High starch diets cause inflammation which can lead to a breakdown of the feet. You can always use slip-on type boots (soft rides, easy boot RX’s) to get them over ground that their feet are not accustomed to. If at all possible I plan on keeping mine barefoot after the tremendous amount of sole depth, concavity, and growth they have developed going barefoot. I have already purchased slip-on boots for the times I need to walk them across gravel. equussynergy Posts: 3175 Location: Four Corners Colorado Google Paddock Paradise, put pea gravel around your feeders and waters. Make sure you have good sole depth. equussynergy RE: annemarea Couldn’t have said it better myself! Fairweather He’s 15.3 and pushing 1300 pounds. He’s on
4 pounds a day of the TE feed and 4 pounds a day of alf cubes, rest is free choice pasture grass hay (fescue,dallas, a little orchard). Is that low enough to avoid laminitic conditions in the feet? To be as big as he is, he is kind of an easy keeper. The previous owner tried to go barefoot and he bruised and abcessed a lot. At least through show season he’ll have to keep shoes. Do you run in the slip ons or do you take them off before your run?
had so much wall separation. It takes time to grow that old damaged wall out. They will look alot worse before they look better. However, the end result is nothing that could have been achieved by leaving the shoes on.
literally walked right out of his shoes in the beginning.
wyoming barrel racer Posts: 5591 Location: Wonderful Wyoming TE has a low NSC feed, I saw it once on their website: http://www.totalequine.info/ Total_Equine_LNSC.html
faith2636 Knox works! Also helps soothe a cough
HDNAQHA Posts: 42 Location: Outside of Larryville, KS I had a farrier tell me you can toughen the soles up by putting something like Absorbine liniment on the soles everyday for a week. I assume it works like turpentine, but you wouldn’t have to worry about it being bad for the horse if it is absorbed into the bloodstream in some way.
Fairweather Well heck.... now I’ll have to have a groom follow me around with my step stool because I’m short and wide and have a separated shoulder.
Chasinmydream Posts: 2139 Location: Central Iowa Fairweather - 2013-03-29 9:51 AM do you run in the slip ons or do you take them off before your run? I would not run in them and my Natural Trimmer does not recommend it! The rubber has too much grip! JMHO! annemarea AGREE! I only use them for shipping here and there....not for alot of moving around. I bought them because the arena that I haul to has a gravel parking lot, but they have actually not needed them. Abscessing is GOING TO HAPPEN when you pull shoes. Two of mine had such horrible under-run heels that they abscessed there the most. But that is the body trying to get rid of the old damaged tissue. The OTTB did have one bad abscess on one of his front toes, but he was walking like a ballerina when I got him. His heels were hurting him so bad that he would jab his toes into the ground so as not to land on his heels. It takes MONTHS (as in 6-8 minimum) to transition them after they have been in shoes, so it’s not a quick fix. But....the difference you see at the end of it all is absolutely amazing. annemarea I’m not familiar with TE feed....you can contact them and ask them what the NSC is and they should know. As far as grass goes....it can really hurt them without you realizing it. I had to muzzle two of mine when turned out. It was just too rich for them. About halfway to 3/4 through the process I begin to notice the walls were not flaking/chipping like they had been. But you have to realize that they
cvlrymedic knox gellatin, I swear by it. It’s super cheap and super effective. 1 packet 3 times a week with their feed. Fairweather Thanks for all the info... Let me throw something else out there for you guys to chew on a bit. This same horse has skin allergies during the summer as well. Last year I tried to switch from the TE feed and that’s when the allergies got worse. I put him back on the TE after a couple of months and they didn’t go away but they did better. Allergies and inflammation go hand in hand...... thinking along the low NSC route do you think the feet issue and the allergies could possibly be related???? MO gal RE: annemarea Does not work for every horse. Had one go barefoot all last year and had to finally put shoes on him this year. I don’t know how bad turpentine actually is for the body to absorb. It is an old timey treatment for different things - on people. However, real turpentine is difficult to find. You mostly see a substitute which is spelled slight differently. If you are going to try it, get the real thing. I did find a small bottle at the pharmacy. knox gelatin - Do you put it in their water or their grain? A whole packet per horse at 1 feeding, 3x a week? Sarah_Leighann Posts: 5226 Location: Elkview, WV It comes in a box with a bunch of small packets. 1oz each, I think. We soaked that horse’s grain and just dumped a packet in every other day. Went from needing reset every 2 weeks to having to be pulled and reset every 6. He
Tsy knox gelatin: I swear by this!
Fairweather Isn’t the Knox Gelatin just for condition/ pliability though--- not toughness?? Used2B I just started a gelding of mine on gelatin. I am ALWAYS reading post from people who swear by it so even though I can’t find any scientific research that supports it I see it as too big of a coincidence that others love it so much therefor I am conducting my own experiment and trying it myself on my horse who could use some hoof help! (I do believe its only for growth and condition though... does not make them harder from what I understand). rodeopitmom Posts: 4681 Location: NE OKLAHOMA I’m convinced that having the best possible farrier you can find makes a huge difference. Since we started going to a Amish farrier over 1yr ago, no cracks or issues with even the barefoot ones. The old man is even much better on rocks now, and he use to never go without shoes. IndianPony Posts: 1075 Location: TX A good farrier will help a lot of problems! If we do get one with thin soles or anything of the sort I paint straight turpentine on the feet and on the underneath, also if the have thin hoof walls I squirt the turpentine in the nail holes with a syringe..after a few days the foot hardens a pretty good bit.

“Makin’ It” Horse RACINGBusiness
ho shares the dream of makin’ it in the horse racing business? How hard is it to be successful at this game of odds? I have recently come to believe that makin’ it in the horse racing business is a goal achieved by lots of people, in many different ways, everyone starting and ending in a variety of positions.
worth more than the weekly $105, but the boss’s budget did not agree. So, Mike climbed up a wrung. He began working as a groom and then Assistant Trainer for the likes of Harry Trotsek and a Division of Darby Dan. He continued his experience and advancement up the ladder of success.
Looking at the achievements of Michael Lauer, I asked him for his story on how he made it in this business. His story began with horses. He said he could not remember a time before horses. He reminisced over boyhood trips with his dad across Ohio to Hamilton Race Way Park. As he described it, you could hear the big impression that little ½ mile track made. He relayed the charm of the big oaks in the grassy infield, it was their “Little Saratoga,” he said. Memories of these times included Dad’s Paul’s Pick, a 1954 foal. She was a big, mahogany bay, with no marks. He raced her and then kept her for a broodmare.
Nearly every aspect of Mike’s life seemed to come from his experiences in the horse industry. It was at a track in Chicago that he met his wife, Penny. Penny entered into this story from a very different position. She grew up on the North side of Chicago and graduated college with a teaching degree. Though she had a love for the horses, for Penny, a day at Arlington meant time shared with a girlfriend watching the races. She said it wasn’t until she “stepped into Mike’s dream” that she ever considered making a career in the horse industry.
Today, he said, you wouldn’t hear of a fifteen year old boy taking the bus to Lexington by himself. But that summer and those spent at Monmouth were among his fond memories growing up in the horse industry. Mike invested time and attention in his education, graduating college with a BA in History. There was a short time when he worked outside the horse industry. He said bartending was lucrative at that age. Aside from that 2 ½ years at the Hilton, nearly all of his time was spent working with the horses. He worked all of the positions along the way. For four months, Mike mucked stalls all day, every day at Barry Ryan’s Grave Matters Normandy Farm. The long hard days would be broken up if he were called to help in the breeding shed, but made all the harder if the other stall man was called to help. He felt sure his hard work and talents were
Penny recalled traveling the tracks together, with Mike, as they took the horses wherever their best opportunities might lie. Soon, a Kentucky cattleman working his way out of a tough spot offered the young couple the opportune price on 47 acres. Their now unified dream of makin’ it in the horse racing business included the goals of building a home, a family, and their careers. Penny said it was a great family decision because she loved raising their three daughters in a good farm environment. Mike enjoyed success in training and racing, but made costly concessions. He limited his racing to the nearby tracks in an effort to stay close to home. While this might have meant less money, it was of great value. Penny’s words were that, “the girls knew their dad.” They maneuvered the business to coordinate time for their family. It was Mike’s priority to make sure the girls had horses to show and that he was present for recitals, horse shows, and

other mile stones. He said the best Girl Scout cookie sales strategy in the troop didn’t require taking orders. Who could resist a ten year old Girl Scout with a truck load of cookies in the receiving barn at Turf Way? Of course, the Lauer family had to also understand the importance of business. According to Penny, there was always “that phone.” The girls’ memories, she said, would include a family vacation to Hawaii when they all remained loaded in the vehicle, motionless, for an hour. Mike had an important call about a horse and they couldn’t move for fear of losing signal. Both Mike and Penny remembered endless hard work. They both credit the combination of businesses that supplemented each other to provide their living. Whether it was the training and racing, van-line transports, boarders, or breeding sales, one venture would excel if another lagged. It was a particularly tough year when Mike considered trading it all for a more secure means. Finally, he decided against his storage business opportunity and pushed forward in the industry he loved. His training and racing stats continuously grew as did his accolades. In 2010 Michael Lauer joined the million dollar earners. He has retained that honor and is today ranked #115 top North American Trainer. I asked Mike if there was a moment when he knew he had made it in the horse racing business. He said he never made such an assumption. He felt like the moment he paused to claim success might be the moment he lost focus. As I read postings in the history section on melracing.com, I found it was a deliberate matter of setting goals, achieving them, and then setting further goals. The history on the website and the yearly stats told the same story, Mike, and now Penny as well, were making their horse racing businesses ever more successful. Mike’s story is proof that one person makin’ it in the horse racing business creates the opportunity for more. As we discussed the impact that horse racing has on a community, it was evident that Mike pictured the faces of individuals and families from his experience. While the Lauers’ have employed many people throughout the years, Mike mentioned a few success stories that stood out. Each year, for ten consecutive years, Mike knew he could count on the same groom to work for him at Churchill. Her husband apparently, worked jobs both in and outside the racing business. She consistently, served as a groom. Together they were home owners and the proud parents. Mike included this groom in the telling of his story not because he claimed any responsibility for his employee’s successful life. Her skill, dedica-

tion and character were all to her credit. I believe, it was gratifying to Mike and Penny that their success in the horse racing industry could give rise to the opportunity for another family who were making their own way. The Lauers believe there is opportunity in this business for nearly everyone. Mike and Penny strive to bring others along. They are big on partnerships. When asked about it, Penny said especially if someone is nervous about the risk, we say, “we’ll match you.” She said it seems to add to the investor’s confidence if you are willing to jump into the same risk. Confidence aside, not everyone has the means to become an owner. Partnerships also make it possible for more people to get involved that would not be able to otherwise. Mike Lauer is a firm believer that you have to “get the win.” He is a believer that you need to sell the thrill of winning. He tried to explain how from Beulah to Belmont, you can pick the winner out of the crowd. He or she is the one beaming. A feeble old man will throw aside his cane and run his best stride, or a crisp clean woman will walk through a foot of mud to get the winner’s circle for the win picture. About this time in our conversation, cheers burst out of the Hoosier Park Bar. “There, that’s racing,” Mike said, “three guys having a beer just won the trifecta or something.” There is a winning piece of the horse racing business for anyone and everyone at so many different levels. Mike will tell you that every horse they have raced was an opportunity once offered for sale. He said, MOR CHANCES, the best horse they ever bred, was a $2500 buy-back. The Lauers had to take the CHANCE themselves. They continued their investment far longer than originally planned. The gelding was purchased further into his career, and subsequently won four consecutive stakes and continues to add to his $521K lifetime earnings.

“The great thing about horsemen,” Mike said, “is their adaptability.” Makin’ it in the horse racing business doesn’t mean one day everything starts turning your way. The ability to take a failed situation and adapt it into an opportunity has been a big key to makin’ it in this business. That is how the Lauers settled a boarder’s unpaid board bill and later transformed it in to a $190K G3 winning filly named SEVENTIES. Makin’ it in the horse racing business can be defined so many different ways by different people. The horse racing business is where Mike Lauer grew up; it has always been a part of him. He made it through the years, up each wrung of the ladder. He used it as his means to create a home, be with, and support his family. He and his wife, Penny, have become successful owners, and breeders. Mike is among the top trainers in North America. He has, indeed made it in the horse racing industry. In listening to the story of how Michael Lauer made it in this business, we discover the stories of many others. Mike’s success might be a little different from that of the ten year groom he employed at Church hill, but then, it might not be that different at all. When Mike told her story, it was with respect and admiration in his voice. She might not hold the same honor of top North American Trainer. Yet, she has very much made it in the horse racing industry. She has used her love and talent for working with horses to be part of a successful team and, maybe more importantly, to support a strong family. Family members, employees, clients, or partners … they each have stories of their own. Everyone comes with their own purpose and goal. They each bring their own investments and reap their own rewards. There is a level of achievement to match every level of involvement. There is an opportunity of success to fit everyone who dreams of makin’ it in horse racing industry.

Crushing On Bags?
If you made it through last month’s ups & downs of weather, you probably have major spring fever. April promises to be kinder (hopefully) and I like to think there is not better spring welcoming gift than a new handbag. Lets face it, you carry your bag everywhere with you & have to look at it all the time. Why not welcome spring with a bright or pastel color? Currently I’m crushing on bags from Leaders In Leather; they feature unique handcrafter leather handbags in a variety of colors. It’s the classic leather bag with a modern twist. The bags feature lots of leather tooling in fun patterns. And don’t worry; if brown & traditional is your thing, they have that too.
I’ve picked a few of my favorites to show you. Green & emerald bags with tassels, these are nice midsize bags. (above)
Why not welcome spring with a bright or pastel color? I love the distressed look of this pink bag; it appears to have nice tan accents & adjustable straps. (left)
Bright orange & pink is for the bold. (left) Purple & violet with laser cut outs. (above)
Wallet Anyone? This turquoise bag is a showstopper. (left) And of course every bag needs a companion, or should I say wallet. (above) For more information on where to order or the different collections visit Leadersinleather.net

“I can tell you are mad. It’s written all over your face.” How about that one? “You’re smiling from ear to ear.” Ever had anyone say that about you? I think we all know someone that is a real “sour-puss”. They just look unhappy all the time. And unfortunately, everything that comes out of their mouth seems to prove that the smile is not a disguise. It’s really how they feel. They aren’t usually the first person you call for dinner or look up at the next show. But do you know someone who seems to always be smiling? Have you ever met someone that has a positive message written across their face most of the time? (After all, only Ronald McDonald and Howdy Doody had a permanent smile!) I’m talking about the kind of person that makes you think, “Wow, there was something about that person that made me feel good inside.” When you meet someone, who has kindness and contentment in their spirit, you feel it immediately. Their smile is only the product of who they are and people are drawn to them. You want to share the first cup
of coffee in the morning with them or find them at next weekend’s race. I wonder what would happen in the world today, if we were happier and more content and let it show on our faces. Think of the impact on our small “community” of people, such as fellow-employees and friends, being affected by our countenance. And if that was exponentially expanded; think of the impact on society, as a whole. There will be days when the pain of life shows on our face. When that happens, we will be genuine in our sadness, pain and grieving. But, if it’s every day; then we need to check the internal mechanisms that creates the “sign” on the outside. I get it - life is not always a bowl of cherries! But there is incredible power in choice. So, we can choose to let our unhappiness show all over our face and affect everyone we meet. Or, we can choose to say, “What a great day today is. God has given me so much more than so many others.” And, then, maybe, just maybe, someone will wonder what’s going on with us; and why there is a smile on our faces. Go ahead, shock the world today – smile! LivExceptionally, Chris

What is the recommended vaccination schedule for broodmares and foals and why? T
o answer that question I am going to give you some information compiled by the American Association of Equine Practitioners. Why do we vaccinate broodmares? It all has to do with passive transfer of maternal antibodies which basically means the foals gets immunity to disease from its mother’s colostrum. The AAEP provides this information: It is important to vaccinate broodmares 4 to 6 weeks before foaling for their own protection, as well as to maximize concentrations of immunoglobulins in their colostrum to be passively transferred to their foals. The significant majority of vaccines used in broodmares during late gestation to maximize immunoglobulin transfer via the colostrum do not carry a “safe for use in pregnant mare” claim. However, this is an accepted practice and clinical experience indicates these products are safe for this purpose, but if the practitioner has specific safety questions or concerns, he or she is encouraged to contact he manufacturer for additional information. Recognize that simply vaccinating the mare is not sufficient for protection of the foal; successful passive transfer must also occur. The foal must receive adequate amounts of high quality colostrum and absorb adequate amounts of specific colostral immunoglobulins before absorption of macromolecules ceases (generally 24 to 48 hours). Specific colostral immunoglobulins provide protection against field infections for several months but also may interfere with vaccinal antigens and may interfere with foal responses to vaccines; a phenomenon termed “maternal antibody interference.” Although protective concentrations of maternal antibody decline with time, vaccination of a foal while these colostral antibodies are present - even at concentrations less than those considered to be protective is often of minimal value because of maternal antibody interference. Consequently, a foal may be susceptible to infection before the primary vaccinal series is completed. Management directed at minimizing exposure to infectious agents is key during this interval. We would like to help you get your horse health questions answered by a knowledgeable equine veterinarian. Submit your questions to us via email, we will present them to a qualified veteranarian that specialize in equine health and then publish the question along with the vet’s response in a future issue of The Horse Resource.

Foals with residual maternal antibodies generally produce a greater serologic response to killed vaccines when an initial series of three doses is administered rather than the 2-dose series recommended by most manufacturers of vaccines for older horses without residual maternal antibodies. The best source of information regarding your vaccination program is your local equine veterinarian. We have included a schedule below and on the following pages. It is a suggested vaccination schedule provided by the American Association of Equine Practitioners, and is based on generally accepted veterinary practices. These guidelines are neither regulations nor directives for all situations and should not be interpreted as such. It is the responsibility of attending veterinarians, through an appropriate veterinarian-clientpatient relationship, to utilize this information coupled with available products to determine the best professional care for their patients. For complete discussion of vaccination guidelines, please see the AAEP resource guide “ Guidelines for Vaccination of Horses.” The schedule can be found at: http://www.aaep.org/pdfs/AAEP_vacc_guide.pdf and is printed courtesy of AAEP.

Check concentrations of immunoglobulins in foal to be assured that there is no failure of passive transfer.
Annual for breeding stallions and teasers, 28 days before start of breeding season; virus may be shed in semen for up to 21 days. Vaccinated mares do not develop clinical signs even though they become transiently infected and may shed virus for a short time.
Foal from non-vaccinated mare may benefit from: 1) toxoid at 2,4 and 8 weeks-ofage; 2) transfusion of plasma from vaccinated horse; or 3) antitoxin. Efficacy needs further study.
Only in endemic areas. A third dose administered 4 to 6 weeks after the second dose may improve the response of foals to primary immunization.

It Happened.... Well, I still have not been able to get the elusive picture of Duke and his big smile. You keep reading, I’ll keep trying. Maybe next month. On another note, it finally happened. It happened just like I was afraid it would. The lady of the house has lost her mind and brought home another pooch. I was so relieved when Princess Annabelle went to rule her own kingdom and I pretty much had the house to myself. (Since it’s warming up outside, Duke and Freckles are spending most of their time outside.) Now we have another potential princess in the house. I’m not sure what kind of pooch she is. I’ve heard everything mentioned when folks see her.....from beagle and blue tick to dachshund. She has a longer tail than me and lots bigger ears...even though she is just a pup. My guess is she (yes, it’s a “she”) is part rabbit. From what I’ve heard about that Energizer bunny, they keep going and going....and so does she.
Photos by: Still Memories by Anna and Christa Conway
Actually when she first arrived, she just slept a lot. That wasn’t too bad. Then she started running around like a banshee and wanting to play all of the time. She wants to play with me, with Freckles, with Duke, with Miss Tilly, with the people, with shoes, bowls, blankets... well, you get my point - pretty much anything that is in reach and can move or will fit in her mouth. Now she just annoys me. She has attitude to go with the energy. “Yap, Yap, Yap!” It has already started. Here’s a sample of her vocabulary. “Yap!” “Yap!” “Yap!” “Yap!” “Yap!”
- Translated to: “Pick me up.” - Translated to: “Feed me!” - Translated to: “Play with me!” - Translated to: “I’m bored!” - Translated to: “Mine!”
She answered to none of the above. I’m telling you, it’s the attitude - she liked “Maybelline” and only answered accordingly. Maybe it’s the Energizer Bunny.... Maybe it’s Maybelline. Wish me luck......
Oh, I forgot to mention that she got to pick her own name. They tried everything from “Dixie” and “Penny” to “Whinnie” (horse farm thing.)

IJRA Rodeo News
Story provided by: Rachel Thomas
is back at it again. Our rodeo season picks up again this month and if you know of some kids who are cowboys and cowgirls at heart, now is the time to join! To be able to compete at the IJRA State Finals in August, members need to compete at 7 rodeos. This requirement can be met by attending all of the scheduled spring rodeos. Kids who are in Kindergarten-8th grade can compete in IJRA in either the boys or girls division and members can live in Indiana or any of our bordering states.

For anyone interested in competing in our association, now is a great time to join. There are seven remaining regular season rodeos this year. Members in 6-7-8 can also participate in the Cinch Division rodeos.

IJRA News Girls 6-7-8 IJRA members are also able to compete at the State Finals Rodeo in August to represent IJRA as the Indiana Junior Rodeo Association Princess. The contestants have a horsemanship contest, a judged speech and are also interviewed by the judges. Our current IJRA Princess, Alyssa Griffiths, has done an outstanding job representing IJRA this season. If you are interested in running for 2013-2014 IJRA Princess, please talk to Alyssa or her mom, Michelle Meier. The families involved with IJRA are one of a kind. While many of the families are spread out over the state, strong friendships are created that make friends more like close family. There are many families who are more than willing to share information or put together clinics to teach others more about an event. IJRA is an association that can hold its own in national competition, but membership offers contestants even more than learning to rope or ride. Members also learn responsibility, social skills, life lessons and determination during their years in IJRA.

Frequently asked questions about IJRA Membership How do I become a member and enter an IJRA rodeo?
Families can fill out the paper work to become an IJRA member when they sign in for their first rodeo. Rodeo entries are taken over the phone or by mail two weeks before each rodeo. To get entered in a rodeo, parents should call Angela Pitchford to let her know what events your child will be competing in.
How much does it cost to become a member?
Families pay an annual $30 IJRA membership fee. This fee includes all children in the family. If you use an electric hook up for the weekend the cost is usually around $40 and stalls around $25 each for the weekend. There are also minimal fees for each event the contestant will compete in per day. Each student member is required to obtain a $125 sponsor per rodeo season which must be turned in by the April rodeo.
How can I get more information about IJRA?
The IJRA website www.ijra.org has almost all of the information you need to be an IJRA member. Even easier is to call an IJRA Board Member on our website or Association Secretary, Rachel Thomas at 260-413-6660 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. IJRA families are more than happy to help new members with the ins and outs of your first rodeo â€“ we have all been there. You can also find us on Facebook under IJRA Indiana Junior Rodeo Association.
Come and see us at the Hoosier Horse Fair!
IJRA will be selling our fundraising raffle tickets again this year. Tickets will go on sale at the Hoosier Horse Fair in April and the winning ticket will be drawn at the IJRA State Finals in August. See your favorite IJRA member or look for us at the Hoosier Horse Fair!
Rodeo News Indiana High School Rodeo FAQs Association from the
What is the Indiana High School Rodeo Association?
Organized in 1967, the IHSRA is a non-proﬁt charitable organization established to promote the sport of rodeo with Indiana’s high school youth. The purpose of our association is to: 1. Keep the western heritage alive and active in the state of Indiana. 2. Encourage all students and members of our association to continue their education throughout high school and beyond. 3. Promote the highest of conduct and sportsmanship at all of our events.
What can the Indiana High School Rodeo Association offer me as a member?
The IHSRA is an independent high school rodeo athletic organization. The association is a member of the National High School Rodeo Association which gives our members the opportunity to qualify and compete in the National High School Finals Rodeo - the largest contestants rodeo in the world. The NHSFR includes competitors from the United States, Canada and Australia. As a competing member of the Indiana High School Rodeo Association you have the opportunity to enter and compete in any of our sanctioned rodeos throughout the states of Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois and Ohio (and sometimes others). The number of rodeos will vary from year to year, but is generally in the range of 10 to 12 weekends per year, totaling 20 to 24 rodeos per year. In addition to being involved in the IHSRA events, the association also works to keep it’s members informed of other rodeos, open jackpots, clinics, and practice arenas that may be of interest to the high school membership. For more information regarding the Indiana High School Rodeo Association, the activities of the association, and the beneﬁt we bring to our high school members: visit our web-site at ihsraonline.org
How do I become a member of the IHSRA?
The IHSRA offers two types of membership to high school students in the state of Indiana. The ﬁrst is a Competing Membership With this type of membership you can enter any rodeo sponsored and held by the IHSRA, and will have the opportunity to qualify for or earn some or all of the following: 1. Scholarship awards for our high school members who pursue continued education after high school. These awards are not only for academic continuing education, but are also awarded for technical and vocational continuing education. 2. State Finals Championship Awards - the high school members of the IHSRA compete all season long to earn points. The State Finals Competition is the last event of the season held in the state of Indiana and numerous awards are given to contestants in all events. 3. Financial assistance is given to our National High School Rodeo Finals Team. Each year, the top four contestants in each event qualify to compete in the National High School Finals Rodeo - the largest contestants rodeo in the world. The cost of travel, and competing in this event is substantial, and some of that ﬁnancial burden can be relieved by donations and contributions. The second is an Associate Membership With this membership, you cannot enter as a competitor in our rodeos, but you can serve in many other roles within the association. This type of membership is for those who may have a love for and enjoy the sport of rodeo, but do not desire to or are not yet ready to compete. You can serve as a journalist, photographer, arena worker, and/or perform many other vital duties for the association. To become a member, obtain your own membership application packet, visit the website below.

Do You Know Where You’re Going?
Does Anyone Else Know Where You’re Going? The first part of that title probably doesn’t surprise you too much if you have ever taken the time to read the “Last and Most Important Thought” on the next page..... but the second portion of the title may have you puzzled. Let me explain what I am referring to. This past month I witnessed the passing of my grandpa. I would never have thought I could witness such an event and leave to head home afterwards with a sense of excitement and joy. How could I say such a thing? Excitement and joy over losing a loved one? Two words: BLESSED HOPE. Titus 2: 11-13 11For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;13Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Someday I know I will see my grandpa again. I said goodbye to his earthly body, but not his spirit. I have that “Blessed Hope.” You see, my grandpa let us know that he had chosen salvation - salvation offered by Jesus. Even though my grandpa waited a long time to choose Jesus, he did accept the gift available to us all. You see we are all eternal beings.... C.S. Lewis said it very well when he wrote: “There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations - these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit - immortal horrors or everlasting splendors.....” But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit.... I love that portion....have you ever thought about it in that sense? When you are interacting with someone, have you really thought about how that person (spirit) will spend eternity? Our bodies will fade, but our spirits are eternal. In other words, you and the “person” you are interacting with have an eternity to spend somewhere. Do you know where you’ll spend
it? Wouldn’t it be nice to know where your loved ones are choosing to spend it? We are all eternal beings. Where we spend that eternity is entirely a choice we all get to make. My grandpa made his choice - at the age of 78 - to accept the gift of salvation and spend eternity in Heaven with Jesus. Although I definitely wouldn’t recommend waiting that long, I am so glad he finally realized how important of a decision it was. Not only did he receive comfort from the Holy Spirit, he also gave all of us (his family) a peace knowing that we would see him again someday. That is why I could be excited and joyful when he passed away. By accepting the gift of salvation you get
the comfort of knowing yourself, but you are giving a comfort to those who love you and have chosen salvation AND you are lighting a path for those who have chosen to “put it off.” We all have a choice to make - and putting it off is actually making a choice. Deuteronomy 30:19 (KJV) I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
I choose life and I hope you will do the same. Happy Trails & God Bless! Christa
On the Trail
By Brother Brad Curtis of Mountain Top Cowboy Church
BREAKIN’ PRIDE When the dust cleared Mark was face down in the dirt He had four hoof prints In the middle of his shirt
Chet let out a chuckle Adding maybe a rag weed She ain’t worth a dime Or the oats that you feed
So I’ll break that little mare And add her to my string But boys I need a favor Can I ask you this one thing
Mark shouted I’ll break her Before the day is through The ram rod spoke up Said that’s what’s wrong with you
The boys kinda laughed As he got to his feet Dustin` himself off In the middle of the street
Rick then pointed and said Looks like she throwed a shoe I can tell pard By the prints she left on you
Which way did she head Leaven out of town It was hard to tell Layin`there….. face-down
You think it’s her That I was talkin` about And I’m right here Ain’t no need to shout
The town folks were pointin` But Mark didn’t care He was clearin` the cob-webs Caused by that crazy little mare
Mark picked up his hat Takin` it all in stride Said boys don’t you worry About that mare I ride
And if y’all don’t mind Could y’all not tell the ram rod That I was layin in the street And my pony needs re-shod
Yep you’re a twister And you sure can ride But you’ll learn a thing or two While I break your pride.
Skip said yep she’s broke Just a might green If she weren’t so crazy She wouldn’t be so mean
Yep she’s green broke And a might rough But when the boss hired me He asked if I was tough
You know he named her today Yep he calls her Pride Said she needed broke And I was in for a ride
Proverbs 11:2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
Then Clay chimed in We told you she was sour Full of hate and spite But purty as a flower
I said I’m a twister One of the very best I could ride a bolt of lightnin` And let you boys rest
The ram rod rode up He was leadin` Pride Said looky what I found Did you lose your ride?

One Last (& most important) thought… Salvation is a gift and a choice......
Read past issues of our Christian Cowboy Collection and the Christian Barrel Racer’s Newsletter at the website below!
Jesus died on the cross as the final sacrifice. When He was resurrected on the 3rd day, he defeated Satan for us. All we have to do is believe that He beat death and acknowledge it with our words. If we believe that and accept Him as our personal savior…we are promised eternal life with Him in Heaven. You can’t earn your way into Heaven; you have to believe your way there. So many people think they “aren’t good enough” to get to Heaven… But… Salvation is a GIFT from God and you don’t earn a gift. Gifts are something someone gives to you and for the gift to be yours, you have to accept it. All we have to do is accept that wonderful gift. I know I have…won’t you? But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many. Romans 5:15
For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10: 9-10

ITOBA NEWS - Indiana Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association
ITOBA The Jockey Club / America’s Best Racing Issue Open Letter to the Racing Industry March 25, 2013 Dear Thoroughbred racing fan: The Jockey Club / America’s Best Racing initiative, which is focused on bringing new fans to our great sport, kicks into high gear over the course of the next three weekends. Through television programs on the NBC Sports Network and NBC, plus a new entertainment-focused website and a consumer sweepstakes, our goal is to elevate our best product for new fans and for you, our current fan. From research and data, we know two things: We have a fan base that still numbers in the millions and our fans remain passionate about this sport. Over the past three years, starting with broad consumer outreach and input, there has been a roadmap laid out to increase marketing of the sport on a national level. Three components of the plan will be front and center in the next few weeks. Upcoming telecasts on the NBC Sports Network and NBC will feature Kentucky Derby preps from Florida, California, Louisiana, New York, Kentucky and Arkansas. They will also showcase the competition and lifestyle that resonates powerfully with audiences both young and old.
Owners & Breeders
Equine Injury Database The Jockey Club today released an updated North American fatality rate for Thoroughbreds that includes four years’ worth of data collected in the Equine Injury DatabaseTM, the North American database for racing injuries. Based on an analysis of 1,532,418 starts collected during the four-year period January 1, 2009, through December 31, 2012, the prevalence of race-related fatal injury was 1.92 per 1,000 starts. For individual years, the prevalence of fatal injury per 1,000 starts was 2.00 for 2009, 1.88 for 2010, 1.88 for 2011, and 1.92 for 2012. “The causes of racing injuries are often very complex and involve multiple factors interacting together over time,” said Dr. Tim Parkin, a veterinarian and epidemiologist from the University of Glasgow, who serves as a consultant on the Equine Injury Database and performed the analysis. “While the fatality rate has remained fairly static over the course of the past four years, the real significance today is that, with 1.5 million starts in the database, we have now established a baseline and we can begin to analyze the relationships between each of the individual factors. In the future, we will be able to design interventions based on these data and recommend actions that will reduce injuries and fatalities.”
As our current fan, we have a simple request for you.
Only injuries that result in fatality within 72 hours or less from the date of race are included in the national figures. It should also be noted that statistics from previous years are sometimes updated due to the addition of tracks or corrections in the EID fatality data originally submitted by participating racetracks.
Spread the word.
Parkin’s analysis also found that:
Tell your friends. Tell your neighbors. Tell your co-workers. Let them know about TV shows that lead up to “the greatest two minutes in sports.”
There continues to be a reduction in the risk of fatality on synthetic surfaces. The risk of fatality on synthetic surfaces was significantly lower than the risk of fatality on turf surfaces, which was significantly lower than the risk of fatality on dirt surfaces. Female horses were at no greater risk of fatality when racing against males than they are when racing against other females. 2-year-olds were at significantly reduced risk of fatality compared to older horses when racing on dirt. Moving a race off the turf onto dirt or synthetic surfaces does not increase the risk of fatality. Table 1 contains a four-year summary of statistics from the EID stratified by categories of age, surface type and distance.

Indiana Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association - ITOBA NEWS to analyze data collected at their respective facilities. The Jockey Club also maintains a website that enables racetracks to make public their data in a standard, summary fashion at (jockeyclub.com/initiatives. asp?section=2). Summaries of fatality statistics for a participating track include the year, number of race days, number of starts, age of the horse, distance of the race and the surface on which the incident occurred. A list of racetracks that have signed up to participate in the Equine Injury Database, including those who are now reporting their statistics publicly, can be found at jockeyclub.com/initiatives.asp. The Jockey Club, through two of its for-profit subsidiary companies, InCompass and The Jockey Club Technology Services Inc., has underwritten the cost to develop and operate the Equine Injury Database as a service to the industry. By agreement with the participating racetracks, from time to time The Jockey Club may publish certain summary statistics from the Equine Injury Database, but will not provide statistics that identify specific participants, including racetracks, horses or persons.
Twelve New Projects Launched by Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation
The board of directors of Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation has approved funding of 12 new projects plus an unprecedented three Storm Cat Development Awards. The 12 new regular projects are in addition to five projects that are now in their second year. The 17 research projects are being underwritten by the foundation in 2013 for a total of $874,024. This slate of research projects brings the foundation total since 1983 to
$19,953,183, which has funded 299 studies at 40 universities. The work being launched in 2013 addresses problems involving the detection of lameness in the galloping horse, laminitis, herpesvirus and the development of a rapid test for Salmonella, among other projects. For the researchers’ summary description of each project, click here. Designated as recipient of the seventh annual ElastikonTM Equine Research Award is the project entitled Acoustoelastography to Monitor Injured Tendons, to be conducted by Dr. Sabrina Brounts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The ElastikonTM Award is funded in part by a grant to the foundation from the Consumer Products Division of Johnson & Johnson, manufacturer of ElastikonTM tape and other equine products. The Storm Cat Career Development Award, inaugurated in 2006, is a $15,000 grant designed as an early boost to an individual considering a career in equine research. It has been underwritten annually by Mrs. Lucy Young Hamilton, a Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation board member whose family stood the retired champion stallion Storm Cat at Overbrook Farm. The three Storm Cat winners for 2013 are Brandy Burgess of Colorado State University, Daniel Warren Youngstrom of the Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center at Virginia Tech, and Erin McConachie of the University of Georgia. “The committee who selects the Storm Cat recipients described how difficult it was this year to select one over two other exceptional candidates,” said Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation President Edward L. Bowen. “Since Storm Cat is now 30 years old, our chairman, Dell Hancock, suggested that we fund all three — one for each decade of the stallion’s life — on this one occasion. Therefore, Lucy Young Hamilton will fund one of them and our foundation will fund the other two and we will be helping three young researchers this year.”

Mystery of the Month This month we have a flash back that has a trial heat winner from a previous Indiana Quarter Horse Futurity. A recent QHRAI Hall of Fame Inductee is in the irons. The trainer of this horse recently passed away, but left a long line of children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren to carry on the family tradition he started in the horse industry. If you know the names of the jockey, trainer (or anyone else) in this picture - and maybe the horse and year - send us an email or give us a call to win your choice of a one year subscription to The Horse Resource, a “Horsey Hat” or a “Horsey-T.”
Call 765-744-7363 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your answer! Good luck!
We Have A Winner!! We had another great response for last month’s Mystery of the Month. Several people knew this cowboy! Our winner was Marcia Fetterhoff. Marcia knew our cowboy and was the first to contact us with the correct information. Our cowboy’s name is Dale Tubesing. He is shown roping in Kansas City, MO in 1978. Dale was quite a cowboy and since Dale’s passing, his wife and daughter carry on the horse business. They stand the stallion, Nonstop Firewater who has had offspring running at the NFR. Marcia chose to take a Free Subscription as her prize. There were several others who knew the answer to our Mystery, including: Steve Duncan. Thanks to Joann Tubesing for sharing this photo with us.
We Need Your Pictures From the Past..... We have almost ran out of photos!.....Please send us your older photos of horsemen and women (and kids) that are still active in the horse business today.
