hings seem to be getting back on track here at the farm after a crazy month in July. I wish I could say the same about our weather. We have only had one “hot,” summer-like week so far this year. (Of course, that was the week we baled hay.) Other than that, it has almost felt like autumn around here. The cooler temperatures definitely keep the horses feeling fresh and frisky! Even the older retired gelding was kicking the walls of his stall to get out to his pasture this morning. This issue has some great information to reference now and in the future. It’s almost time to start thinking about weaning those babies and Dr. Steve Fisch gives us some advice on how to handle the transition this month in “Ask the Vet.” We’ve also got the third leg of our Triple Crown coverage included in this issue for you. There are some beautiful pictures of Belmont Park and the competitors from the 145th running of the Belmont Stakes that you will surely appreciate. Thanks to Steve Heuertz for doing such a wonderful job! We hope you are all enjoying your summer with your equine and human friends (even if it feels like autumn) and we especially hope that you........

..........remember to count your blessings on horseback! God Bless and Ride Safe, Christa Conway

A Little “Barrel Talk” We have included a small section of “A Little Barrel Talk” for you this month. Remember to visit to read more Barrel Talk.

What do you do for herd bound horses?

annemarea Posted 2013-06-20 5:15 PM (#6763490) Location: Iowa, LA Please give me some advice. I have a 17 year old mare who is severely herd bound to a 5 year old mare (who could really care less). I have them in pastures that are separated by about 20-25’. They can see eachother. There is no set up on my property where I could keep them out of sight year round. I went on vacation for a week and my dear mom decided to rearrange my pasture pairings. She put the gelding by himself and put the two mares together. I had them separated by dietary needs and to keep the herd bound issues minimized. Now the 17 year old mare has been pacing her fence at a trot/lope for four days. She whinnies day and night. She has diarrhea and is covered in sweat a lot of the day. She’s way too worked up now for my daughter to ride. This is her usual activity when I ride the 5 year old mare out of her sight. I have both mares on Mare Magic right now. I don’t see a difference. They are fed oat/wheat/grass and Renew Gold. The 17 year old is a retired working cow horse and the 5 year old is being patterned/seasoned. The gelding is 2. What would you do? melaself Get her a mini to keep her company MO gal First, I have a mini-donkey as a companion for any horse left behind. Then, I have a gelding that is herd bound--pokes along going away from his friends and all but runs away coming back.

Page 4

I set aside a couple of hours to work him close to his buddies. Nothing fancy, just keep his feet moving when he is close to them. It takes some time at first and lots of patience, but he has been much better after a few sessions of that. He found out that when I rode him, it was more work to be close to his buddies than to be away from them. Other than that, don’t have much help. Good luck.

kwanatha I don’t mind so much if one of mine has a buddy as long as it does not interfere with tying or riding. I like to play a game called HAVE IT YOUR WAY - Take two people, one to hold the buddy in the middle of the pen. deep sand is great for this (wears them out quicker) The horse can have his way and have his friend anytime he wants as long as he is loping cirlces around the buddy! When he starts to huff and puff I stop him and tell the buddy handler to walk away slowly. If my horse shows any desire to have his buddy he GETS HIS WAY. Oh, but did I forget to mention he has to lope around him. Try again rinse and repeat LOL all I need to see is his head raising and I take that as “oh you wnat your buddy.” At first, horse may pitch fits but they figure it out pretty quick and drop their head and let them go This helps iron out other problems as well becasue after this they have a new attitude so other problems just go away. HorseMommyFiveO My hub will run away f I ask for another

horse - no matter the size. LOL! Maybe a goat. Under the guise of eating it eventually? Hmmmm

ACEINTHEHOLE RE: kwanatha I agree with this... make it very tiresome for her to be by the buddy... have someone hold the buddy horse and lope circles, lung circles or anything that is “work” every time they are together...and wear her butt out! Only let her relax when she is alone! BamaCanChaser Is the mare pastured by herself? Horses are herd animals by nature. I agree with finding her a pasture mate. I wouldn’t tolerate misbehavior while riding, but I have seen some very predictable horses have a complete personality change when they’ve been moved off by themselves. pookey I tried everything for my old gelding that I used to have and nothing worked until I got a donkey. She was free and I just fed the horse what I normally feed them and the donkey eats with them. So really she doesn’t cost any more. She’s now kept 3 more horses company. LRQHS RE: HorseMommyFiveO I have seen horses kill goats. I would be really cautious about doing this. Some horses are cool with it, but other’s want to kill them. One of my colt’s picked a large goat up by the back of his neck and threw him out of his pen, which is almost 6 feet high......that goat never went back in the pen......

graciemay Goat Goat has learned the hard way several of ours are not goat savvy, the others don’t pay any attention to him. Also, it’s really heard to keep a goat in a normal fence if he decides he wants to leave. Ridenrun4745 I got 2 pygmy goats for my colt when weaning him, I don’t think it helped at all and they were a PAIN. Ended up giving them away. But, my husband’s aunt said that the problem was that they were Pygmys, we should have gotten a larger breed. My colt just came back from the trainer. He keeps all of the training horses by themselves first, and though some of them talk (mine did) and carry on, he keeps on. He works them daily and ties them out for a bit each day, and after about a week they chill. He says that after a little bit they bond to him - he said it different, but it made sense at the time. That being said, my mare was anxious when we brought her home. Started her on Forco and it has made a WORLD of difference in her attitude, for what it’s worth! She’s way more laid back now, rarely paws, and is fine if I take the colt out. LRQHS LOL....My goat was the size of a small shetland lol...I don’t know how that horse picked him up an threw him, but I sure saw a goat, out of the corner of my eye, fly over the fence and I definitely saw him when he landed. He laid on the ground for a few seconds...guess he got the wind knocked out of him.....then got up and ran like the hounds of hell were after him lol....

News Kentucky Round-Up to Feature Clinician Craig Cameron Lexington, KY, July 18, 2013 – Kentucky Round-Up is an annual event sponsored by the Kentucky Horse Council (KHC) that celebrates the magic of horses with live demonstrations, hands-on activities, and educational exhibits. Today KHC announces the addition of nationally known Craig Cameron as a featured clinician at Kentucky Round-Up 2014. The event will be held February 15-16, 2014 at the Alltech Arena in the Kentucky Horse Park. Craig Cameron adds a level of excitement to the new two-day event, by raising the bar on the quality of horsemen education and entertainment. “We are so excited to have Craig Cameron come to Kentucky to share his unique skills and approach to horsemanship,” said Anna Zinkhon, President of the Kentucky Horse Council. “We have committed to building the Kentucky Round-Up into a top-notch event and the presence of Craig Cameron moves us a large step closer to that goal.” Cameron will be offering multiple clinics both on Saturday and Sunday, including some for the whole audience as well as some for individual paid participants. In addition to Cameron’s clinics, other new features will be added to the two-day Kentucky Round-Up, which started in February 2013 as a one-day event. The Round-Up will continue to focus on youth involvement by offering a new Youth Congress. The Round-Up Youth Congress is open to youth nominated by horse associations, which are members of the Kentucky Horse Council. Each association may send two youth members. The Congress will emphasize leadership and character training, and also feature a lunch talk by Craig Cameron. Additional information about Kentucky Round-Up will be released as details are confirmed. News about Kentucky Round-Up 2014 can be found at ABOUT THE KENTUCKY HORSE COUNCIL - The Kentucky Horse Council is a non-profit organization dedicated, through education and leadership, to the protection and development of the Kentucky equine community. The Kentucky Horse Council provides educational programs and information, outreach and communication to Kentucky horse owners and enthusiasts, equine professional networking opportunities through KENA, trail riding advocacy, health and welfare programs, and personal liability insurance and other membership benefits. The specialty Kentucky Horse Council license plate, featuring a foal lying in the grass, provides the primary source of revenue for KHC programs.

The American Horse Council - Congressmen Andy Barr and Paul Tonko are the new co-chairs of the Congressional Horse Caucus. Congressmen Andy Barr (R-KY) and Paul Tonko (D-NY) have been named co-chairs of the Congressional Horse Caucus in the 113th Congress. Barr and Tonko replace former co-chairs Congressmen Dennis Cardoza (D-CA) and Brett Guthrie (R-KY). “We are happy to have Congressmen Barr and Tonka as the new cochairs. They both represent districts that are important to the horse industry and we are lucky to have their leadership in the 113th Congress,” said Jay Hickey, president of the American Horse Council. The Congressional Horse Caucus is a bipartisan group of members of the House of Representatives formed to educate Congress and their staffs about the importance of the horse industry in the economic, agricultural, sporting, gaming and recreational life of the nation. “I am honored to represent the ‘Horse Capital of the World,’ and excited that I have been named co-chairman of the Congressional Horse Caucus,” said Barr.

“Kentucky’s signature horse industry provides Kentuckians with nearly 100,000 direct and indirect jobs, and has a $4 billion economic impact on our state annually. As co-chairman, I have already been hard at work recruiting new members to the caucus and planning meetings to educate Congress on issues impacting the horse industry. I am glad that Congressman Paul Tonko from New York will be my co-chair and appreciate his bipartisan leadership as we plan these events,” Barr said. “The equine industry represents a large number of quality jobs, economic growth and a way of life not only in my Upstate New York district, but across the nation in rural and urban areas alike. I look forward to serving as co-chair of the Congressional Horse Caucus and working with my colleagues in the House in a bipartisan manner to promote this sector of our country’s culture, tradition, and economy,” Tonko said. The AHC encourages all members of the horse community to contact their representatives and urge them to join the Congressional Horse Caucus.

Honoring the Military Horse

A National Art Competition that Artistically Celebrates the Time-Honored Relationship Between the Horse and the American Military Scottsdale, AZ, July, 2013 - In recognition of the long and illustrious relationship between the horse and the six branches of the American military – the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and Na-

News tional Guard – The Trail of Painted Ponies, in partnership with Horses4Heroes and TAPS (the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors), is proudly announcing an exciting new national art competition that is designed to creatively showcase the special relationship – past and present, on the battlefield and in ceremonial and therapeutic programs - between the horse and the American military. No other animal has played so great a role in the history of warfare as the horse. From horse-drawn chariots to armored knights to mounted warriors to light cavalry, humans have relied on the horse for battlefield successes. Nations have risen and fallen by the horse. Until they became outmoded by machine guns, tanks, airplanes and other modern weapons, horses were our war machines. While their role in military campaigns has changed, they continue to serve the troops. The U.S. Special Forces relied on horses to keep supply lines open for report outposts in the mountains of Afghanistan in Desert Storm. The Caisson Platoon of the 3rd US Infantry, dubbed “The Old Guard,” represents the Army in ceremonies at Arlington Cemetery and in presidential inaugural parades. On the grounds of the Air Force Academy, therapeutic riding programs have become important to help returning military members with physical and emotional wounds. It is time for the military horse to receive its due. Artists and creative spirits everywhere, active duty military personnel, veterans, and their families, everyone with a vision of how to imaginatively pay tribute to what has been called the world’s “oldest weapons system” - a soldier and his horse – is invited to participate. Using one or more of the five Trail of Painted Ponies horse forms as a canvas, designs can be realistic representations or artistic interpretations, and can represent the history or embody the spirit of one of the military services, or all combined. The winners in each category, to be determined by a national online vote, will receive cash prizes, merchandise, national attention and their designs could be crafted into a collectible figurine.

he “Rule of Three” tells us the greatest of things come in the smallest of numbers required to create a set and establish a pattern. From children’s stories to movie trilogies and catchphrases to religion, the rule is adopted in many forms that recognize the perfection of three. Horse racing is no exception. The Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes comprise Thoroughbred Racing’s Triple Crown. Contested within five weeks each spring, the Triple Crown begins with the Derby on the first Saturday in May, moves to the Preakness two weeks later and concludes with the Belmont three weeks after that. This year, different winners emerged in the Derby and Preakness. While this meant for the 35th consecutive year no horse would capture all three races and win the Triple Crown, the Belmont offered the next best thing as Derby winner, Orb, and Preakness winner, Oxbow, both entered the final leg and bid for a second classic win. Left to right from top: The eleven horses that captured racing’s elusive crown are celebrated in the Belmont infield; A statue of Secretariat honors the legendary horse at the site of his greatest accomplishment; Exercise rider, Jen Patterson, gives Orb a pat after another solid morning workout; Peter Pan Stakes (Gr. 2) winner, Freedom Child, walks off the track the morning before the Belmont.

Opening in 1905, Belmont Park sits just outside New York City in Elmont, New York. The track is the largest in America with a massive main oval nicknamed “Big Sandy” due to its 1 1/2 mile circumference and sandy composition. Although the Belmont meet is filled with tremendous racing and multiple graded stakes, the Belmont Stakes is the track’s premier event. Like the Derby and Preakness, the Belmont Stakes is a Grade 1 Thoroughbred horse race restricted to three-year-olds. Initiated in 1867, the race is the oldest of the Triple Crown series and was previously run at two other tracks before making it’s permanent home at Belmont Park in 1905. Today, the Belmont has a purse of $1,000,000 and it’s 1 1/2 mile distance on dirt is a full 1/4 mile longer than the Kentucky Derby and 5/16 miles longer than the Preakness, typically making it the

longest distance any of its entrants will ever run. Given it’s great distance and in conjunction with the finality of the intensely packed five-week Triple Crown, the Belmont is referred to as “The Test of the Champion” as it pushes its contestants to dig deep into their Thoroughbred heritage and find that magical staying power required to pass this final exam. “The Test of the Champion” moniker concurrently eludes to the reality that the Belmont is both judge and jury to the Triple Crown verdict. While eleven horses have worn racing’s crown, none have done so since Affirmed last accomplished the feat in 1978. Since then, twelve horses have taken both the Derby and Preakness and entered Belmont Park with hope of joining the grandest of clubs. From Spectacular Bid to Sunday Silence and Silver Charm to Smarty Jones, all twelve took the “Test” only to find defeat awaiting 1 1/2 miles away. However, while Birdstone may have only surged pass Smarty Jones a few strides before the finish in 2004, more recent history suggests the “Test” is increasingly difficult as Big Brown’s bid

for the crown prematurely ended when he was eased in the stretch in 2008, while I’ll Have Another never even entered the Belmont starting gate as he was scratched the day before his shot in 2012. The current extended gap since the last Triple Crown winner is similar to another lengthy stretch that began after Citation completed the sweep in 1948. 25 years would pass until 1973 when Secretariat ignited the racing world and was crowned as successor to Citation. While two horses followed Secretariat (Seattle Slew in 1977 and Affirmed in 1978), his Triple Crown

The Longines Just A Game remains arguably the most memorable of all. After setting still unbeaten records in both the Derby and Preakness, Secretariat turned in possibly the most dominating performance in racing history when he won the Belmont Stakes by an astonishing 31 lengths in a world record time of 2:24, a mark that continues to stand today. While there would be no Secretariat in the 145th running of the Belmont Stakes, Orb and Oxbow were worthy headliners aiming for another piece of racing history. Although only they envisioned a second jewel, twelve others entered the Belmont and dreamed of a single slice of the Triple Crown pie. In total, ten starters from the Kentucky Derby would contest the Belmont. Orb, Oxbow and Will Take Charge were the only horses to also run in the Preakness, meaning they were facing seven fresher competitors who skipped the second leg, plus four new entrants making their first Triple Crown race start. Still, respect was paid

Much further down the morning line, a 15-1 shot was preparing to run with blinkers off.

The field broke well and began their single circuit around the giant Belmont Park oval with Frac Daddy (1) and Freedom Child (2) making for the lead while Oxbow (7) sat third and just to their outside. As they ran into and around the sweeping clubhouse turn, the leading trio maintained their positions through a fast opening 1/4 mile in 23.11 seconds while Palace Malice (12) comfortably sat in fourth and just off the pace. Three lengths behind, Incognito (6) led a pack of eight horses including Revolutionary (9) and the lone filly in the race, Unlimited Budget (13), and her “filly� rider, Rosie Napravnik.

Further back of that pack Orb (5) was running second to last and Derby second place finisher, Golden Soul (14), was last of all. Frac Daddy began to slow and Oxbow made for the lead as the pace remained strong with the first 1/2 mile in 46.66 seconds. Freedom Child continued to duel with Oxbow through 3/4 miles in 1:10.95 and Palace Malice moved into third continuing slightly behind the pace. Revolutionary ran in fourth well behind the leading trio while Orb began to pass horses along the outside. Freedom Child tired and Oxbow continued the field through 1 mile in 1:36.47. Palace Malice challenged the game Preakness winner. Orb rolled into fourth with only Revolutionary between he and the leaders. However, Palace Malice continued to battle Oxbow before eventually taking the lead at the top of the stretch. Orb passed Revolutionary into third behind Oxbow, but neither the Derby or Preakness winner could catch Palace Malice. Palace Malice passed “The Test of the Champion” in a final time of 2:30.70 with Oxbow in second and Orb in third.

They’re Off!!

From the first crop of two-time Horse of the Year, Curlin, Palace Malice conquered the race his father finished a head short when he was second in 2007 to the

remarkable filly, Rags to Riches. Five weeks before the Belmont, Palace Malice was one of the defining stories of the Kentucky Derby. As the surprising Derby pacesetter, Palace Malice’s grueling fractions were some of the fastest in Derby history and the fastest ever for a Derby run on a sloppy track. Prior to the race, his connections equipped him with blinkers in an attempt to focus his attention throughout the Derby. However, Palace Malice became too focused and jockey Mike Smith was unable to restrain and slow the torrid move. Undoubtedly, the fast fractions assisted the late runners

and the top three finishers came from well off the pace. Considering the fractions he set, it would be expected for any horse to fade in the 1 1/4 mile Derby, and Palace Malice did just that. Despite this, he was surprisingly able to hold on for a respectable 12th place finish. Feeling it was an indication of potential used too quickly, Palace Malice and his team regrouped, skipped the Preakness and aimed for the Belmont...with blinkers off. That move, along with the relatively slower pace of the Belmont and the five week break since the Derby, made the race increasingly seem like an ideal fit for the talented colt. At least that is what owner W. Cothran “Cot” Campbell was hoping. As the pioneer of race horse group ownerships, the 85-year-old Campbell and his Dogwood Stable served as yet another throwback in the 2013

Triple Crown. In 1969, Campbell started Dogwood with the goal of creating partnerships that increased the opportunity and availability for individuals to experience the thrill of owning Thoroughbred racehorses. Since its inception, Dogwood has run 76 stakes winners, 15 of which won Grade 1 races, including the 1990 Preakness Stakes with Summer Squall and the 1996 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies with Storm Song. Palace Malice’s victory in the Belmont provided the second Triple Crown race win for Campbell and Dogwood while proving that after 44 years, the partnership approach continues to payoff and those that invest in nurturing the sport, will forever be rewarded. Trainer Todd Pletcher received his own reward with his third victory in a Triple Crown race to accompany his 2007 Belmont with the aforementioned filly Rags to Riches and 2010 Kentucky Derby with Super Saver. As one of racing’s top trainers, Pletcher often finds an abundance of talent occupying his barn. He has saddled many Triple Crown starters throughout his illustrious career including an astonishing five horses in the Derby just five weeks earlier. However, despite more than a quarter of the field, the best finish the group could find was Revolutionary’s third

Time to Celebrate

place. After the Derby, Pletcher decided to skip the Preakness altogether and refocus on the Belmont. Again, he entered a talented group of five in the Belmont, each with their own hopes and remarkable potential. This time, Palace Malice asserted himself as the unquestioned best of the quintet. Pletcher wasn’t surprised. He had always regarded Palace Malice as one of the top horses in his barn and quietly, he knew, it was only a matter of time before the son of Curlin began to follow in his father’s footsteps. Jockey Mike Smith shared Pletcher’s confidence and belief in Palace Malice. Despite his trouble controlling the Derby pacesetter, Smith retained the mount for the Belmont and was able to settle Palace Malice with a patient ride around the giant track. After a 2012 in which Smith finished a heartbreaking second in all three Triple Crown races (Derby and Preakness with Bodemeister and Belmont with Paynter), Smith found his way back to the winner’s circle as he had previously done in the 1993 Preakness with Prairie Bayou, 2005 Derby with Giacomo and 2010 Belmont with Drosselmeyer. The win further validated Smith’s already Hall of Fame career and vindicated the disappointment he experienced in the Triple Crown just one year earlier. Steve Heuertz Bio

Although Affirmed will continue his wait to pass the crown to racing’s next monarch, the “Rule of Three” still applied to the 2013 Triple Crown with Palace Malice completing the trilogy as the third different winner of one of racing’s coveted jewels. While many may have enjoyed the prospect of Orb or Oxbow asserting themselves to the clear top of the 3-yearold division, Palace Malice crashed the party and wrote his own chapter in a compelling Triple Crown that saw three separate victories serving as a reward and thank you to some of the true pioneers and stalwarts of racing. In the meantime, the summer becomes even more compelling as Orb, Oxbow and Palace Malice set their sights on races such as the Haskell and Travers to continue the magic they have already displayed, while making a push toward end of the year honors. Until then, it remains anyone’s race. Steve Heuertz; Steve’s horse and loyal friend, Cowboy, a 18-year-old, Red Dun Quarter Horse

It started with a horse named Cowboy. Disregarded and discounted, this nine-year-old Red Dun Quarter Horse left his life as a ranch horse in South Dakota and ventured a new path into the life of Steve Heuertz in 2004. Shortly thereafter, a bond was formed that fully catapulted Steve into the world of the horse where he became fascinated with the wonderful capabilities of this majestic animal. Of particular interest were the speed, endurance and competitive spirit demonstrated by the equine heroes within the sport of Thoroughbred Racing. Although initially satisfied with observing from afar, Steve became increasingly captivated by the sport and turned toward capturing the splendor of racing via his other passion, photography. The result was a recipe where he could combine his great love for horses, racing and photography into one harmonious blend that was greater than the sum of its parts. Since then, racing has taken Steve across the country to such wonderful places as Saratoga Race Course, Churchill Downs, Santa Anita Park, Pimlico Race Course, Belmont Park, Keeneland and Hooiser Park. During these travels, Steve has been fortunate to witness and photograph equally wonderful races such as the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes (racing’s famed Triple Crown) as well as the Travers Stakes, Santa Anita Derby, Indiana Derby, Stephen Foster Handicap and Breeders’ Cup, among others. However, residing in the Chicago suburb of St. Charles, IL, Steve regularly frequents Arlington Park and Hawthorne Race Course where he has enjoyed capturing magnificent races like the Arlington Million and Hawthorne Gold Cup. Today, Steve’s passion for horses, racing and photography is like a fire that continues to be stoked. While either behind the lens capturing the thrill of a Grade 1 race or in the saddle loping around a field with Cowboy, Steve has learned to operate under the simple truth that the more he is able to involve the horse in his life, the happier his days become.

Congratulations Jim Noel QHRAI would like to congratulate Jim Noel for being recognized as an Honorary Member of the Indiana Livestock Hall of Fame for his contribution to the Quarter Horse Industry in Indiana. Jim was selected by a committee of representatives of all species, and is only the 4th recipient of this award representing the Quarter Horse Community.  The award presentation will be on August 5th at the State Fair during the Quarter Horse Yearling Presentation by John Cloe.  Previous recipients from the Quarter Horse Community are Bud Alderman, Dwayne McDavitt and John Cloe.   Congratulations Jim on this prestigious award!

T h a n k Yo u J a n i e S c h u s t e r On July 6th, QHRAI presented Janie Schuster with a plaque as a small token of our appreciation for all of the things she does for us. Janie has gone far above and beyond her professional role at Indiana Downs to promote, market and most of all support the Quarter Horse Racing Association in Indiana.  She has been a true friend to the QHRAI and our entire racing community.  She has spread goodwill throughout the track and in the local community in a way that makes us all proud!  

Congratulations Randy and Marg Thompson On July 17th, Randy and Marg Thompson, accompanied with their family, were recognized for their significant accomplishments in the Spring Quarter Horse Race Meet at Indiana Downs.  Randy and Marg have a successful breeding operation in Brazil, Indiana.  They have been racing Quarter horses for around 20 years.  So far this year they have earned more money and won more Quarter Horse races than any one has ever earned or won in an entire year, and the season is only half over.   They have had 31 starts to date. 9 of those were wins, (30%),  4 of which were stakes.   Their horses, including 2012 Horse of the Year, Air Born Leader and 2012 three year old Champion, Successful Dash, have lit the board at 52%.   Their earnings to date are $325,000.  They have won 4 of the Indiana Bred stake races to date, with 3 different horses.   Randy is ranked on the AQHA leaders charts as the 7th leading owner in the entire country for money earned in racing so far this year and he and his horses are at the top of the AQHA regional High Point charts and the national divisional leaders charts.      Randy's horses have dominated the Indiana Bred Program. Randy and Marg Thompson are a class act in the Indiana Quarter Horse racing program and are a prime example of how Indiana sired, bred and owned horses can be competitive and put Indiana on the national charts.  They have made the initial investment and continue to reinvest into the Indiana Economy with their  breeding and racing programs The Quarter Horse Racing Association of Indiana is very proud to include Randy and Marg Thompson in our Quarter Horse Racing Family here at Indiana Downs.  Congratulations on your successes!

Quarter Horse Racing Quarter Horse Racing Enthusiasts, We have had a great spring meet at Indiana Downs and are off to a great start to the second part of the year of racing. There are going to be a few changes in the racing schedule that you need to take note of. On Sept. 2, 2013 Indiana Downs will transition from a 6:00 p.m. Þrst post to 1:55 p.m. EST. Racing will follow the existing Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday schedule with the exception of an earlier Þrst post. The new schedule will remain in effect until closing day Oct. 19. The schedule change will be implemented in an effort to gather market data and discover Indiana Downs’ optimal position in the national horse racing market. Have you been noticing the new barn construction at Indiana Downs? The Þrst of four is well under way and we will be seeing quick progress on the rest! Indianapolis-based Centaur Gaming announced Tuesday, July 23rd the appointments of both Scott Peine and Kevin Greely each to the position of director of racing and racing secretary for Hoosier Park Racing & Casino and Indiana Downs respectively. Peine will report to Rick Moore, Hoosier Park Racing & Casino’s vice president and general manager of racing, while Kevin Greely will continue to report to Jon Schuster, Indiana Grand Racing & Casino’s vice president and general manager of racing. Scott has been a great asset to the race office at Indiana Downs and we wish him luck as he transitions to Hoosier Park and we are looking forward to working with Kevin at Indiana Downs! The fall Quarter Horse Day of Celebration at Indiana Downs is October 12th. Hold that date. You won’t want to miss all the fun of the day, and the dinner that QHRAI is hosting after the races. We have some very special guests attending this year, so please keep watching for more updated info! Watch the website for dates and times of board meetings in August, September and October. Because we have live racing on some Tuesday nights, there will be some changes to the regular Þrst Tuesday of the month dates. Please keep Shanly Jackson in your thoughts and prayers. Shanly was involved in a serious racing accident and is recovering from surgery on his hip and collar bone. Best of luck too everyone as we kick off the Fall Meet at Indiana Downs! Stay safe and see you at the track!

I’ve always admired the customization options for these pads that make them stylish & of course they are well made & practical. Best Ever Pads are from California & I have been seeing an increased number of them showing up at barrel races lately.

Would you rock a glittery Best Ever Saddle Pad?

If your answer is yes, let us know! The customization options are endless. From initials, to classic designs & your own ideas, there is truly something for everyone.

Stand Out!!

I hand painted this pad with red, purple & turquoise glitter. It is completely sealed so glitter won’t end up on you or your horse. While it looks sparkly, these photos cannot do it justice or show you how the sun catches the glitter. If you are looking to stand out in a crowd, this is the pad for you. Page 36


Would you rock a glittery Best Ever Saddle Pad? I chose to do three different glitter techniques on each section to show how versatile the glitter can be. If you would like a glittery Best Ever Pad, the options for customization are endless! Where its initials, a classic design, or something wild & free hand like I did, it can be done. I did some abstract feathers on the corner plate. Although the zig zag design on top of the pad might be my favorite piece.

For ordering & more information please contact Best Ever Pads – or call 805.528.8009. These glittery option is not on their website right now but if it gets a positive response, these pads could become a permanent part of the Best Ever saddle pad line.

I have an obsession with cowboy boots, Christian Louboutin, cosmetics and cooking. I have been riding since I was two-years old, have competed in just about every discipline & now I focus on barrel racing. I love speed & athletic horses, not to mention lots of sparkly things.

A Day Off? T

he other day, I took a day off and escaped. I just chose to not take the time to post on my website,, which I have done daily for the last six months. But as a true Baptist kid (second only to Catholic kids in the “Guilt Department”) I began to feel guilty about not posting. I spend a couple of hours daily writing about LivExceptionally. The time is well spent because I’m passionate about taking lives to a new level, but yesterday, I guess I was low on passion, in fact – “the tank was empty!” I’ve been aware of a low fuel level recently, but I hadn’t been able to diagnose the problem until yesterday. Here is my point - I extol people to live up to their full potential and strive to become everything they were intended to be. I don’t preach at anyone, but share my struggles with life and my own attempts to LivExceptionally. I share because, well, because I think I should. We tend to accept our own deficiencies and ourselves, for that matter, more readily when we don’t think we are the only one, who has ever been in the same situation. So, the question I asked all day was “Do I get a day off?” Low and behold, I came up with an answer. Yes! I get a day off from posting, but I don’t get a day off from living and striving to live in a way consistent with my divine purpose – ever! I don’t get a break from

living as I was intended. No matter the energy level, I can’t surrender “doing right” to apathy, weakness or choice. I’ve struggled lately with a number of things. I have struggled with the “do’s” and “do not’s” of living. That’s called “failure”. I’ve also struggle with the inconsistencies of my words, beliefs and actions. That’s called “borderline hypocrisy”. The conflict gnaws at me and draws my passion from me like a sponge. If I want to motivate, I must lead. When we are conflicted, we know something is not right. It is a fine line between destructive guilt and productive conviction. One cripples; one motivates. Conviction says failure is a conclusion describing our efforts. Guilt says it is who we are. Conviction focuses on the next step. Guilt has our heads turned around looking at the last. Conviction keeps our sight on the destination. Guilt lays on us our pasts, as if it was a heavy, invisible burden on our shoulders. My day off from posting is over. I’m back. I’m working toward restoring my reservoir of energy fueled by passion for what I believe by removing conflict from within. My passion may wane, but my belief in and responsibility to LivExceptionally can never have a day off. Even if you didn’t miss me, thank you for the day off, my friends. LivExceptionally, Chris

Common Methods and Effects of Weaning

METHODS OF WEANING The best weaning method is the one that fits you your facility and results in a stress-free, relaxed, and uninjured mare and foal. One popular method is pasture weaning and this method is commonly used on farms where mares and foals are pastured in groups. At weaning time, one or two of the mares with the oldest foals are removed from the group, leaving their foals with the group. The mares should be removed quickly at a time when the foals are occupied somewhere else. The mares should be taken to an area completely out of sight and hearing distance of the other mares and foals. Additional mares may be removed from the group when their foals reach the desired age. This process occurs until all mares have been removed. Some farms will introduce a nice calm gelding that remains with the weaned foals to provide some education. This method seems to have little stress on the foals as most will quickly adjust to the herd of familiar horses. However, all foals should be observed in the hours following weaning to ensure they don’t become too distressed when they realize they can’t find their mothers. If pasture or interval weaning isn’t possible, which is often the case if there is only one foal to be weaned, other common methods are used. One method involves immediate separation from the dam, while the other is gradual separation. Immediate separation involves bringing the mare and foal into a stall and removing the mare. Some people will place the newly weaned foal with a companion animal or

Page 40

another just-weaned foal. Although a companion may seem to be a less stressful option than leaving the foal alone, foals that are weaned and given companions have been shown to have increased stress response than those weaned and left alone. If you do plan to use a companion

Ask the Vet with Dr. Steve Fisch, DVM

Gradual weaning is a common method. Allowing foals to see, hear, smell, and touch their dams through a fence, but not nurse, for seven days prior to complete separation is known to be less stressful in the days following weaning than abrupt weaning. Studies have shown a reduced stress response and higher feed intake in the first week after weaning in gradually weaned foals. Foals weaned by this method also exhibit less emotional stress, vocalization, and activity than abruptly weaned foals. When comparing gradual weaning with abrupt weaning, there is little difference in feed intake from about two weeks after weaning, but the major benefit of gradual weaning is the reduced stress and reduced risk of injury. EFFECTS OF WEANING Researchers describe an animal as in a state of stress if it must make abnormal or extreme change in its physiology or behavior to cope with the adverse effects of its environment or management. Under that definition, weaning surely qualifies as a stressor to young horses. It has been documented that foals which suffer undue stress when being weaned can lose their appetites and lose weight and when they recover later on, they often undergo a sudden growth spurt. The result of this dip and surge in the growth curve of a young horse sometimes is a cause of developmental orthopedic disease (DOD), the condition in which bones and joints begin to develop abnormally, causing contracted tendons, physitis, or even bone cysts in the joints of the limbs. In contrast, foals which undergo the minimum amount of stress during weaning continue to grow at a more even rate. A level rate of growth makes them far less predisposed to DOD. One study reported that stalled yearlings had a reduction in radiographic bone density that was not observed in age-matched controls maintained on pasture. Reduced bone density is one effect that is minimized in foals that are weaned on pasture as described previously. Another study evaluated effect of age on weaning. Foals were weaned at either 4.5 months of age or 6.0 months of age. To compensate for

animal, it is important that the foal doesn’t become overly attached. This can make separation from that companion nearly as stressful as weaning from its mother.

possible seasonal effects, foals were matched so a 6-month old foal and a 4.5-month old foal were weaned on the same day and then kept in the same pasture. Although it was suspected that younger foals would be affected by weaning more than the older foals, weaning at an older age did not reduce the depression in average daily weight gain observed in the first week after weaning. Furthermore, at 8 months of age, there was no difference in either height at the withers or body weight between the two weaning groups. SUMMARY Every foal must be weaned from its dam at some point. However, how the weaning process is undertaken may have significant effects on the growing foal. The goal is to have the foal healthy, well socialized and growing at level rate when it is weaned. Then each management team must evaluate their facility and situation to make the foal’s cross over from a life with mama to a life with his friends as seamless as possible. The result will be a happier, healthier and sounder adult athlete.

I Got My Vacation After All I think the lady of the house felt a little guilty leaving us here last month. Remember, I told you she was gone and we were all happy to see her when she got home? Well, we all needed a vacation after that! Time for the lake! A well deserved vacation for yours truly, I must say. I included a few pictures of

me and my friend, Maybelline, enjoying some sunshine. I think Miss Maybelline liked the lake. She didn’t whine at all on the boat (like she tends to do most of the time everywhere else.....she’s a little needy.) She even went swimming in her cute little life vest like mine. She can doggie paddle pretty well for a beginner.

Photos by: Christa Conway & Sam Tolbert I did get a chuckle out of her enjoying the boat ride. She does have some ears, you know! Boy, were they blowing in the wind! I have to admit it was pretty cute, but I’m glad I don’t have that problem. We had a great time chasing butterflies and even a few cats. I felt kind of bad about the incident with Freckles last year, so I didn’t take Miss Maybelline on any crazy chases over any cliffs. She wandered off enough on her own to keep the people busy. Needless to say, the family enjoyed getting away together and we left Freckles and Duke at home this time to watch over the farm. I did have a chance to do a little research this past month. I found out that there really are doctors that do plastic surgery on pets.... google it.....unbelievable, that’s all I’ll say about that.


I also found out who “Rosie the Riveter” was - as well as Winston Churchill. (You should already know...but if you don’t, you may want to google them too.) Lastly, I checked into the reality TV. I think I’ll just write a book. What do you think?



Until next month, I’m loving google!!!

We currently have a new website Visit our website for our 2013-2014 schedule, contact information, and for updates on IJRA.

Abbi White

I’ve been in the Indiana Junior High Division for 2 years, this year I made it in light rifle. It was a long trip down to New Mexico, this year my sister and I both qualified so that added to the excitement! I want to thank my parents for letting me be a part of the Junior High Division and IJRA, it was an amazing experience to be a part of something so great. Congratulations to everyone on the Indiana team who worked hard to get to finals, and everyone who made it to the short go, also congratulations to Grace Hasler on being nominated our national student Vice President. I have enjoyed the opportunity to make it to nationals and have set goals to get there for next season in Iowa.

Olivia White

Well what can I say about my experience in Gallop, New Mexico???? Well my experience in Gallop, New Mexico was amazing!!! This was my first

Page 48

year in Cinch and I made it in light rifle shooting and ribbon roping. It was a great experience to go out there and be a part of the Indiana team. I want to Congratulate Anna Dietrich along with tucker O’Neil for making it to the short go and Grace Hasler for being our National Secretary and now our National Vice President. I would like to thank the whole Cinch team, Rena Johnson for being really supportive to me, Sydney Hurley for inspiring me to get better and work hard and Kyle Mackey for being my Ribbon Roping partner, I had a great experience with him and ribbon roping. Along with my great family they have been so supportive, especially my Mom, Dad, and sister Abbi White, along with my best friend Elise Bittinger. They were with me and had my back. I had a great time down there. I had a lot of Hawaiian shaved ice and concession stand food with Roy’s Lemonade but it was so good!!!! I really hope I make again next year.

IJRA News Addie Keller

This year’s Gallup, NM trip was one I will never forget. Since it was my 8th grade year, I tried to make it the best trip yet. Nationals is always a great way to meet new people, and see new things. I made sure to do a lot of that this year! Even though it is a very enjoyable trip, we all need to realize what a great opportunity it really is. I’m proud to say that I competed in the Jr. High National Finals. It was an experience that I will remember forever.

Kyle Mackey

I had a great time this year at the Cinch National Finals Rodeo in Gallup NM. I qualified in Chute Dogging, Team Roping, Calf Roping and Ribbon Roping. I did not do as well as I would have liked to but I did better than the past two years. Our Indiana team did really well this year. I would like to thank my family and sponsors for helping me get out there.

Brandon Tolbert

I competed at the Cinch Junior High National Finals competing in bull riding and boys break away roping. I’ve been in Cinch for 2 years but this was my first trip to the National Finals. It was a whole different experience than the rodeos back home because their were so many more competitors. What I enjoyed the most about Nationals was all the great stock that the contractors brought for us to be able to compete and meeting new people from all over the United States as well as Canada and Australia. I would like to thank God for helping provide the opportunity, strength and talent to be able to compete at this level. I would also like to thank my parents, friends and family that supported me when many people thought I was crazy to want to rodeo.

Jenna Byers

This was my first and final year of CINCH and I’m looking forward to moving on to High

School Rodeo in the fall. I competed in barrel racing, pole bending and goat tying. My greatest achievement throughout my rodeo career thus far is my horse, Socket. Socket had zero rodeo experience when I started working with him less than a year ago….. and while he still isn’t turning in winning times quite yet, he is turning in consistent runs each and every time. My next goal is to take him to the next level speed wise and see where we go from there. I would like to thank all of those who have given me pointers and assistance throughout the year. I would also like to thank my Dad for spending so much time hauling to and from the rodeos and supporting me. Plus, my Mom for always being there showing me support and giving me positive encouragement.

Evan DuBois

With Cinch JHNFR 2013, I completed my third year as a Cinch team member. My events were lite rifle shooting and boys breakaway roping. My goals for this season were to qualify to compete in national finals. This year in rodeo, I learned that I had the skills and desire I needed to make it to nationals. I had my best breakaway run ever in my first go at finals, needless to say I was really nervous and excited at the same time. I finished 71st out of 147 in breakaway. Because of the strong winds and the sand getting into my gun, I didn’t shoot as well as I would’ve liked, but I still had fun. I would have to say the most memorable parts were sitting around a camp fire after every performance. The most fun I have had this season was the truck ride to finals. I would like to thank my father Darren DuBois for always getting me called in on time for all of my rodeos and for paying all of my entry fees. I would also like to thank Cory Griffiths for letting me rope on his wonderful horse all year long, I wouldn’t have been able to do it without them both. I would also like to thank Mike Mackey for hauling me to nationals and back home. Also, I would like to thank the Oswalt family for the time they took to coach me. I would not be able to do as well as I do without any of you. Finally, I want to thank my generous donors, Food & Fuel Quick Mart of Hartford City, Mr. Dan and Dr. Helen Borgenheimer, and Keplinger Funeral Home.

Anna Dietrich

This was my last year traveling to Gallup, New Mexico. As I move up to high school I can take all the memories that were made in my 3 years at the NJHFR with me. I met so many amazing people and I’m thankful to have such a great opportunity. I had so much fun in the rodeo arena and out. When the week came to and end it was disappointing to know I wouldn’t be back to Gallup, but hopefully I get the chance to go to Wyoming as well. I pulled out with 3 buckles and many unforgettable memories.

Rodeo News from the

Indiana High School Rodeo Association

The 2013 National High School Finals Rodeo (NHSFR) has come to an end. Indiana was well represented; it’s not easy competing in the world’s largest rodeo. The event is not only about competition in the arena but meeting new friends and learning from each other. Competing against 1,400 contestants from 41 states, 5 Canadian provinces, and Australia, the top 4 contestants in each event from their state or provinces were fighting for a national title. Indiana had some close finishes at the NHSFR. The Indiana High School Rodeo Queen, Camrie Goodson placed 18th out 40 in the national queen contest. Her speech titled: ‘Rodeo Mom’ received 7th place and she also had the 7th highest test score covering the NHSFR rule book. The Queen candidates not only compete in four areas: horsemanship, rule book test, speech/modeling and impromptu question, they sell 50/50 raffle tickets at each rodeo event (there are 12 total rodeos in one week), sign autographed pictures, assist with the special needs Rodeo event and participate in four Grand entries. The Queens are actively involved in promoting the sport of rodeo the entire week. In the Breakaway Roping event, Bre Belden did a great job and was closest to making the short go placing 25th and the rest of the team placing 39, 64, and 122. Indiana had two contestants in the Cutting event: Adam Egger placing 63rd in the Boy’s cutting, and Jessie Hoagland placing 35th in the Girl’s cutting. In the Barrel Racing event Indiana contestants placed 102,109, 141, and 143. In the Goat Tying event, we about had another short go qualifier, Katie George placed 29 and the rest of the team placing 107 and 149. In the

Page 50

Pole Bending event, Indiana contestants placed 67, 108, 119, and 166. In the Steer Wrestling event the Barricklow Brothers, Cord and Strand, placed 85th and 106. In the Tie-down Roping event, Indiana contestants placed 68th, 75th, 108, and 117. There was tough luck in the Team Roping with only two Indiana teams making qualifying runs placing 58th and 68th. There were no qualified rides in the rough-stock end of the arena; team Indiana still gave 100% in the Bull Riding, Saddle Bronc, and Bareback. Indiana was well represented in the National Rifle Association (NRA) shooting sports with all four of the trap and light rifle shooters holding their own. Jacob Burke placed the highest for Indiana in the trap completion and Michael Shreeve placed in the top twenty in the light rifle. During the entire week of the NHSFR there are many other fun activities going on besides the rodeo. There was a volleyball tournament, knowledge bowl, golf tournament, clinics, and a contestant dance every night. It is an honor to qualify and compete at the National High School Finals Rodeo. Give all these cowboys and cowgirls a big hand; they traveled many miles to compete in the world’s largest rodeo representing the Hoosier State. The Indiana High School Rodeo Association is saddling up to start a new season. Our first rodeo is August 24 & 25 in Greenville, Indiana in Hancock County! Come join us!

w/ Christa Conway

I attended a funeral/memorial recently. During the service, one of the men speaking compared the deceased to a dandelion. At first I was amazed. I was thinking to myself...”of all the flowers to be compared to, he chose a dandelion?” I had a preconcieved notion as to what dandelions are and might represent. At first, I thought this was a really poor choice of flower to use for comparison. Boy was I wrong. You see, he went on to talk about the dandelion in ways that can mirror us as humans. I’ll first share what he mentioned and then I’ll elaborate. The speaker mentioned how dandelions are actually very beautiful, bright and colorful flowers. Something he also mentioned (that I didn’t realize) about dandelions is that once they open to bloom, they stay open until they turn to seed (die.) When they go to seed they become a “puff ball” and the seed is then carried by the wind to distribute and plant new flowers in many new and different places. The speaker at the memorial compared the person who had passed to the dandelion in these ways. This person had always been very open and available for friends and though now deceased, there were seeds planted through friendships in many places that will carry on a memory. “OK, I get it.” I thought to myself. But then my mind got to wandering and I thought.....”but, there is so much more there to elaborate!” We are all like dandelions. One thing that comes to my mind is that dandelions are everywhere. (At least in my!) We take for granted the beauty because there are so many. Most often we look at them as a nuisance or a weed. Very seldom do we take the time to study an individual dandelion. Of course, as kids, we probably appreciated them. I know I made necklaces and gave them to my mom as a present. I have also been on the receiveing end of that transaction with my own kids. I’ve watched them pick dandelions and make a bouquet for Grandma. Funny how things change as we get older. With dandelions as well as with people, we begin to take for granted the beauty of God’s creations. Unless we take the time to stop..... and really appreciate how beautiful they can

be, we may miss something extraordinary.

everyday. We shouldn’t “look past” them.

Have you ever been driving down a road and caught a glimpse of a yellow ocean of dandelions covering a field in the early summer? I really didn’t expect something so common to catch my eye, but I specifically remember thinking to myself, “I can’t believe those are dandelions!”

I am guilty of this, I know it. It took a common yellow flower to remind me that I am like that flower....and so are the people I come in contact with each day. Common, yet not so common.

I guess I had somewhat of a preconcieved notion at that point as well....that dandelions are weeds and they couldn’t be “beautiful.” I think sometimes we have the same feeling towards our own brothers and sisters. Some we disregard, some we ignore, others we just take for granted. But shouldn’t we take the time with each person we come in contact with to appreciate them? To acknowledge them? Especially those who are a part of our lives

I have a choice. I can choose to appreciate those around me, even if they seem a “nuisance.” I can choose to take time to open myself up to those who need me. I can choose to be beautiful, bright and colorful (so to speak.) When I am gone and all that is left are “seeds” that I have planted, I hope there are plenty and that they are seeds that can be appreciated. Happy Trails & God Bless!


On the Trail

By Brother Brad Curtis of Mountain Top Cowboy Church

TRUE GRIT Rook stepped off the train We spotted him right away He’d joined up with the brand Wanted to cowboy for his pay

Rook got him a seat We all said that- a-boy Before you know it Rook You’ll be as good as ol’ Roy

Rook asked who’s H.S Paul said he’s your main teacher He sure knows his stuff But kind’of a ghostly creature

Boots, belt and buckle All were a perfect fit When he walked out Roy said hope you have some grit

Yep you could tell that Rook Had never seen a cow But he’d joined up So we’d learn him how

Now Roy was a top hand He said Rook your doin` fine In a week or so I’ll teach you Some tricks with a twine

H.S. hand Rook some saddlebags Said here is all need Now Rook go get change About time to go feed

Rook said thanks y’all Glad to be on the brand Now I’ve got my gear Ready to make a stand

The boys all said howdy Then shook his hand Paul said knew you were a dandy So welcome to the brand

As we rode across the spread We showed Rook the place He looked at its glory With big ol` smile on his face

Rook ran to the bunkhouse Went in and shut the door Opened those saddlebags Dumped it all on the floor

Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

We’d brought him a horse Rook said think I’ll walk Paul shook his head Said Rook we need to talk

When we got to the main house The owner was waitin` there Along with his only son At his right hand in a chair

Now Rook’s eyes lit up As he looked at the tack That ol` boy change into a cowhand Right there in that shack

I’ll teach you how to ride So take the reins in your hand Put one foot in stirrup Let’s ride out to the brand

It was then all the hands Let out one big cheer The owner said welcome H.S. has your gear

He had a new hat Then there was the vest A pair of wooly chaps Yep it all was the best

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

Mystery Solved.....

We had a hard time coming up with a name for the cute new addition. We thought about “Smitty” (Ft. Smith reference) but that didn’t stick. “Peaches,” since she came to us from Georgia. Nope. Since we had a winner last month and no one took a shot at the details to our photo, we decided to fill you in on the significance and details. The photo was taken of “Bella” on the day we picked her up. Bella is actually a Georgia peach, but we didn’t pick her up in Georgia. We were at the Old Fort Days Futurity in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The picture was taken on the bleachers and Bella is posing in Vick’s hat.

So, it came down to a name game. We began rambling off the names of horses that were doing well that year (I believe it was 2004.) One name stood out to us. The horse was ridden by Cody Bauserman and the name was “Bellafous.” That name seemed unique enough. (And of course, Bella - for short - means beautiful!) And so the story of how “Bella” got her name. She is actually named after a horse.......of course.

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. Or if you have pictures of a well known horse or event....that will mix things up a bit. We’re up for some new mysterys if you are!! Keep sending us those photos!! Send via email to or mail to 12601 S CR 200 W Muncie, IN 47302
