LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

W

ho is ready for Spring? Me....Me....ME!!! Ok, maybe a little too obvious that I’ll be happy when it warms up a bit. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels that way. We have had some of the strangest weather this year and I’m ready for warm sunshine!.

We’ve got foals due this month around our place. It’s so exciting to see the newborns stand for the first time and then watching them get their legs! It never gets old. I also love coming up with creative names for the foals. Have you got any you’d like to share? (thehorseresource@msn.com)

Speaking of foals...remember to send us pictures of your foals to be included in a future issue. Send us owner info, foal’s sex as well as sire and dam. We love seeing all of the new babies! Don’t forget that April will be our Annual Showbill Edition...we need those showbills reserved asap! Contact us to have your club or organizations event showbill included for only $150! That gets a page in the print and digital magazine. It also lists your event in the Calendar of Events in print and on line. Until next month....think SPRING... and Remember to count your blessings on horseback! God Bless and Ride Safe, Christa Conway

A Little “Barrel Talk” We have included another special section of “A Little Barrel Talk” for you this month. and remember to visit www.barrelhorseworld.com to read more Barrel Talk on-line!

Help For Horse Knee Arthritis boon Posts: 4 I need help my mare that has knee arthritis and I need to know what I can give her to keep her from getting lame or unsound ? Whatever it takes I will do :) we’re I’m really having my problems is the first barrel she won’t rate/nor turn :/ if I can get her we’re she’s filling good or happy so she will go back to winning like she was :) this mare has been hit by a truck on a road in OK .. Took 2 years to recovery . She had a baby then we got her and she came out of pasture and runs a record ?! Then ran her agin and she did not turn the first barrel :/ but its weird cause she will have 5 good amazing runs and than go down ?? Need some advise for me to give her or get a vibrating machines or boots ... That keeps her from not hurting :) ATM she’s in a pasture .. When I bring her back up in April .I will take her to do swimming and build her back up and keep her on the threaplate :) if that’s helps . We have had this mare vet check from (head -to hoof ) there nothing bothering her but her arthritis :( it’s vary bad if she goes to waste in a pasture and not run barrels :/ and before I run her I always wrap her knee with lineaments or when we are going down the road :) and normally magnetic blanket ( also ordering magnetic knee boots ) all I’m trying to do is keep her sound as possible and happy :) Thanks :) :) :) rodeomom3 Shelter Dog Lover Posts: 3538 I have an 18 year old that had a chip we did not know about and developed arthritis in his front knee so he is not a candidate for surgery. According to my vet there is not much you can do other than pain management, they will not be sound again. On flexion test he is about a 1 out of 5 but shows no lameness running or in the pasture and is still working great but he has a huge heart and will always try to do his job.. He is on daily previcox, gets either pentosan or polygylcan once a

Page 4

month and if I am going to run him he gets another dose 2 days before his run. suzy2qtee Playing the Waiting Game Posts: 1280 Actiflex.... Is a little expensive but I’ve seen improvement on a few horses within the first week of using it... soonergirl98 Elite Veteran Posts: 745 Location: OK I have one with arthritis in her knee and she gets alot of extra tlc. She gets all of the following: Animal Element Detox - she stays on the loading dose 2 x per day Animal Element product X - 1/2 a squirt twice a day We use BOT knee boots and magnets 2 times per week on her knee - we will do Bot one day take them off skip a day then put on magnets. She is my daughters horse and they compete in the youth so she is not pushed hard but if there is a race she wears BOT on the way to the race and after they run magnets are put on and left on for at least 24 hours She gets previcoxx daily - 1/4 tab for maintenance if there is a race we give her half a tab the day before, day of and day after I have a Best Vet so we use microcurrency on her bad knee at least 1 x per week We make sure the toes are rounded on the front She is an older mare and vets are always amazed at how she gets around (including Dr. Majors) - she uses her shoulder to pick it up and does not act lame at all. She used to be a 1 D rodeo horse back in the day and she absolutely loves barrels she will still run a 3 D time We also spray a mix of Bigeoil, Green alcohol, and Witch hazel on all her legs after every ride. When its warm we rinse her down with cold water and then use the spray. river runner Veteran Posts: 202 I had one that had chips removed from her

knee and I injected her and kept her on Adequan. When I ran her I used Surpass, starting a couple of days before the first run and continueing through with the number of days that I was away from home. She was a winning 1-D horse and rodeo winner.

justcruzin Bisphosphonates IMO are scary, to many side effects. Do you have any research into the side effects in horses? Would be interesting to read and am wondering if they’re similar to that of humans.

run n rate Posts: 8746 Location: 31 lengths farms The best results I got as far as a feed thru for arthritis was with CytleM (sp) My old bay mare was so crippled up fromt the cold and her arthritis I thought for sure I was going to have to go ahead and put her down. Brought her down to the pen so she wassn’t having o travel the hills for water and feed, put her on the CytlM and about 2 weeks she was trotting around some, kicked her back out and she was back to tearing up and down the hills. She didn’t care fot the tasteat first, had to give her Alfalfa meal to get it in her but she continued to be sound until I had to have her put down due to complication with a tumor about 6 years later.

criscocan Veteran Posts: 126 Location: OK I have a 22 year old with knee arthritis, she is semi-retired now. We have had good results with Formula 707 Joint Essentials, it has MSM and Glucosamine in it. We have had her injected also, but not recently the Formula 707 has helped tremendously.

Technicolor Paints Future Lottery Winner Posts: 2258 Location: True North Strong and Free Glucosamine Plus from PureForm Performance Supplements. It is made for this. They will also give you a FREE 2 week sample to try. Call them for more information on the product and sample. 1-877-533-9163 PS I have seen absolute miracles with this product. justcruzin Voice of Reason Location: NOT at Wal Mart Adequan, ledgend along with intra articular injections, add cosequin or a top notch feed thru joint sublement. Surpass and exercise. You need more than feed thru at this stage. ACEINTHEHOLE Tough Patooty Posts: 1308 Location: OK You might ask your vet if she is a candiate for regional perfusion of Tildren. It is the same medication given once yearly IV to women with osteoporosis.

MissBlaze Expert Posts: 1634 My mare is arthritic in her left knee and I’ve been dealing with it for almost 5 years (she’s 15 now). I get it x-rayed every couple of years to monitor it’s progression. Nothing I can do about it and I know the day will come when she’s deemed as useless. I’ve done joint injections but seriously don’t see any difference afterwards. I’ve tried CortaFlex, ActiFlex 4000, Animal Element, and Lubrisyn with no results. She’s just stiff and doesn’t wanna move. I was lucky enough to get a jar of Cosequin ASU Plus and the results were amazing. She runs the pasture, is a lot more active and I seriously could have used a seatbelt when I rode her. I can’t afford to feed this product all of the time so I’m now using regular Cosequin and mixing in MSM myself. She’s been getting this mixture for two weeks now and she’s not slowed down one bit. Just yesterday she and my 4 yr old were running the pasture and she was kicking his butt. It’s great to see her so active and happy once again.

News Road to the Horse: Judgment Time The fate of the next Road to the Horse Colt Starting World Champion rests in the hands of the selected panel of judges for the 2013 competition. Dan James, Guy McLean, Sarah Winters and Obbie Schlom will need to impress judges: Mike Kevil, Joe Wolter, Ian Francis, Bryan Neubert and Cody Lambert. The four competitors will be judged on their ground technique, confidence, the horse’s understanding and acceptance and the final test of skill: rail work, freestyle and the famous Road to the Horse obstacle course. Competitors have a limited amount of time to demonstrate and display their abilities. After three days of watching both trainer and horse the five judges will have a difficult decision to make, who will be the next Road to the Horse International champion? “Nothing but the best for Road to the Horse and its fans”, says Road to the Horse Producer Tootie Bland. “We have the most experienced Colt Starting judges in the history of Road to the Horse and some of the brightest stars ready and willing to show what they got and prove that they are the World Champion! It’s going to be good!” A new award this year, the Jack Brainard Horsemanship Award, will be presented to the horseman or horsewoman, by Jack Brainard, that excels in their power of observation to correctly analyze the best approach and then apply that method as smoothly as possible for the horse’s best interest. Mr. Jack Brainard of Tioga, Texas, is known for his contributions to the equine industry and his lifelong commitment to horses and the people who enjoy them. Road to the Horse Head Judge Mike Kevil has spent the last 35 years developing his own training practices to include patience, consistency and understanding the horse. He is the noted author of “Starting Colts, a Western Horseman Book” and its DVD counterparts, “Starting Colts” volumes one and two. Kevil currently resides in Cave Creek, Arizona. From Grass Valley, California, Joe Wolter is known for his patient approach to helping both animals and people. Joe trains horses for the public and competes in cutting, versatility ranch horse and ranch roping events. Joe and wife Jimmie operate their horse training and cattle conditioning ranches in Texas and Montana. Ian Francis, otherwise known as Mr. Versatility in the Australian Quarter Horse Industry is highly respected in Australia and internationally as a master horseman. Ian concentrates on presenting clinics all around Australia, New Zealand and the United States teaching horsemen how to excel. Bryan Neubert, raised near Salinas, California, began his career with some great horseman who were eager to share what they had learned with him. Constantly gaining horsemanship knowledge, he considers himself to be a continual student. Over the last 20 years has traveled around the United States and Canada sharing his horsemanship knowledge. Making his third appearance as a Road to the Horse Judge is Cody Lambert, a recent Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame inductee. The PRCA World Champion of Bowie, Texas, has a long and storied history in the world of horses and continues to use those skills today, even though he is best known for his bull riding skills. About Road to the Horse: (March 15-17, 2013- Lexington, KY) Road to the Horse is an exclusive horsemanship experience that combines valuable education and thrilling entertainment!

A competition untouched by others, tests skill, experience and colt training prowess, Road to the Horse dares elite horse trainers to create a trusting partnership with an untouched 3-year-old Quarter Horse. The test begins with the selection, choosing only one remuda horse from the legendary Four Sixes Ranch; competitors have just three days to build a working relationship. With disruptive sounds, exhilarating sights and adrenaline-pumping time constraints each competitor must face the final trial, an obstacle course. Only one can walk away with the Colt Starting World Champion title. True horse enthusiasts recognize Road to the Horse as the event of the year. 2013 marks an exceptional milestone, the 10th anniversary. This competition will be the most extravagant yet, an event so big can only happen in one place; The “Horse Capital of the World”, Lexington, Kentucky. Meet horsemen and women from around the world at the Kentucky Horse Park for a truly unique equine experience. Road to the Horse enjoys the support of corporate partners such as Western Horseman, American Quarter Horse Association, Platinum Performance, Ram Trucks, Wrangler, Martin Saddlery, Gist Silversmiths, W-W Livestock, Nutrena, the Four Sixes Ranch and Mustang Heritage Foundation along with many more valued industry products and services.

Kentucky Round-Up Attracts 1,100 Attendees Despite Winter Storm February 2nd, the day of the first Kentucky Round-Up, dawned with freezing temperatures and a Winter Weather Advisory for snow and slippery roads in Kentucky. Event planners feared the worst; despite pre-registrations for the new event topping 2,000 people, the weather might keep people at home. But Kentucky youth and horsemen are not to be under-estimated! By the day’s end, over 1,100 people had come through the front doors of the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park, or trailered their horses to the barns to help with demonstrations, pony rides, Kids Corral and other horse-oriented activities. Over 75 vendors and exhibitors lined the concourse, intermingled with hands-on activities such as the Equicizer, a mechanical horse that trains young jockeys; face painting and pin the tail on the donkey in the Paddock area, a photo opportunity board which allowed kids to be the face of an Olympic jumper, a saddle display area, and a breeds and discipline mural. Other activities included demonstrations on the half-hour in the main arena featuring a Mounted Patrol, Reining, Barrel Racing, Mounted Shooting, Driving, Saddle Seat Riding by 5 different breeds, and more. Over 32 speakers combined in three classrooms to offer education for parents, novice horse owners and advanced topics. Six clinicians filled the day out in the round pen area with topics such as Trick Horse Training, Least Resistance Training, Horsenality, Equine Therapy, and Stock Horse Movement Evaluation.

Eastern Tent Caterpillar Outlook for Spring

Festivals & Concerts

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 13, 2013) – Experts report that the eastern tent caterpillar egg hatch will likely begin in mid-March for Central Kentucky. “The development of the eastern tent caterpillar – and insects in general – is directly correlated with air temperature. This helps predict when they will be active,” said Lee Townsend, University of Kentucky College of Agriculture entomologist. “Temperature data from UK’s Ag Weather Center so far shows a pattern in Central Kentucky that is very similar to 2012.” According to Townsend, temperature information can help to predict when eggs will begin to hatch but will give no clue as to how many caterpillars will be present in a given area. “Last year’s experience is the best thing to go by,” he said. “There has been a gradual but relatively steady general increase in tent caterpillar numbers, and they have become much more apparent in some areas over the past few years. However, concentrations can be spotty, heavy in some areas and very light in others. The eastern tent caterpillar overwinters in ring-like masses of 100 to over 400 eggs around pencil-sized twigs. A relatively small increase in the number of egg masses from one year to the next can mean a big jump in caterpillar numbers.” The eastern tent caterpillar is active early each spring. It is an important insect in horse country due to its role in Mare Reproductive Loss Syndrome, which resulted in staggering losses of foals in the 1999-2001outbreak. MRLS can cause late-term foal losses, early- and late-term fetal losses and weak foals. Subsequent studies by UK researchers revealed that horses will inadvertently eat the caterpillars, and the caterpillar hairs embed into the lining of the alimentary tract. Once that protective barrier is breached, normal alimentary tract bacteria may gain access to and reproduce in sites with reduced immunity, such as the fetus and placenta. According to Townsend, horse owners with spring-foaling mares should now check their fence lines for wild cherry trees and in a few weeks for signs of tent caterpillar activity.

“This is a good time to prepare,” Townsend said. “Begin by checking pasture fence lines to see how abundant wild cherry is in them. If practical, plan to move pregnant mares from areas where these trees are abundant to minimize the chance of exposure to the caterpillars. The potential is greatest when the mature tent caterpillars leave trees and wander to find places to pupate and transform to the moth stage.”

Favorites edged out in Sunshine State Derby & South Florida QH Invitational; Jesses Moon enjoys third straight win in AQHA Maiden HIALEAH, Fla., (February 16, 2013) – Historic Hialeah Park continued its season closing weekend with upsets in the card’s two biggest stakes races. Sharp start makes all the difference for Ahs Ironsmash in Sunshine State Derby Jockey Shanley Jackson found that a sharp start was all AHS IRONSMASH needed to bring home the victory in Saturday’s $46,200 Sunshine State Derby. The Gridiron gelding edged favored GETTIN FAMOUS by a neck in the stretch for owner/breeder Alicia Hill Smith. He covered the 400 yards in 19.623 seconds. This was Ahs Ironsmash’s the first start for trainer Matt Frazier since he placed sixth at Hoosier Park in October 2012. Prior to that, the Georgia-bred had two wins from three career starts. PIRANHAAA finished out the trifecta. Also ran: SMOKIN HABANERO, AFORGONE CONCLUSION, CHANNELISLANDSFLYER, PAT HAND, AZYOUSEEIRAP, LYNCH FULL FLIGHT, and TOAST TO FIRST. I See Visions pulls off front-running upset in South Florida Quarter Horse Invitational I SEE VISIONS, off at 6-1, topped favored runner HEZ SNOW QUICK in the South Florida Quarter Horse Invitational Stakes on Saturday. Booted to victory by Troy Crissup, the colt by One Famous Eagle out of Vision of Dash, by Dash For Cash, led for almost the full 440 yards.

News Despite finishing fifth in his qualifier, the Florida-bred left no doubts about his prowess in the Invitational. “He was real helpful, he said he was an easy horse to get along with,” said winning trainer Grover Wheeler, Jr., of former trainer Vann Haywood. “[The horse] just shipped in a little late for the trial. He needed a little time to get settled in.” I See Visions completed the distance in 21.818 seconds. “He does everything good; he’s just a nice horse to be around,” said Wheeler, who expects the horse to go on to the Old South or Firecracker Derby. STORMY CARTEL finished third. Also ran: MOONLIGHT WALK, TAMPICO, MS SOUTHERN DYNASTY, SCREAM N EAGLE, DROPPIN TIMBER, TEXELKAS CHIC, FAST N FURIOUS B. Jesses First Moon gets third straight win in AQHA Maiden Stakes JESSES FIRST MOON finished first in the $26,505 AQHA Maiden Stakes under a confident ride by Osdany Leal on Saturday. The fiveyear-old betting favorite broke his maiden at Hialeah on January 5, and followed that performance up with a win in an optional claimer two weeks later. “We knew he was going to win today,” said Leal, who got his second straight win in the race. The son of My First Moon and Mr Jess Perry mare Jesses Playmate is trained by Sergio Concepcion for owner Reynaldo Guzman. He covered the 300 yards in 15.471 seconds. AQHA representatives presented the blanket to the winning connections for the Maiden Stakes, which is part of the Bank of America Racing Challenge. DASH MASTER JESS lost the photo finish with Jesses First Moon for second, followed by GOLD TOOTH DISPLAY00 and MISS JP WASHER. Also ran: WINTER GODDESS, WEST COAST SHAKER, and ROCKIN BIGTIME.

Longshots score upset in Hialeah’s closing day stakes HIALEAH, Fla., (February 17, 2013) – Historic Hialeah Park drew its 2012-13 season to a close with a bang on Sunday as longshots claimed three out of the card’s four stakes races. Classy Cora too classy for Sailfish field Jockey Robert Cummings used his experience riding Thoroughbreds to steer CLASSY CORA to the wire in front of the field for the 1,000yard, $27,000 Sailfish Stakes on Sunday. Cummings took the Coronas Prospect filly out to an early lead of 3 ½ lengths and never looked back, holding off late charges at the wire by 1 ¾ lengths. “I loved the one hole, loved the horse, loved the trainer and all that,” said Cummings. Classy Cora, who went off at odds of 11-1, is a homebred for owner Bill Baker Haithcoat, and is trained by Ron David. She completed the distance in 53.698 seconds and paid $24.80, $11.80, and $4.00. “There’s a sentimental story behind the horse in that the owner passed away after she ran the last time in the program, so we knew he was over top of us watching us, and we had a lot of spirit going into it,” said Cummings. David said that Classy Cora’s big heart and half Thoroughbred breeding gave her a leg up on her competition in the Sailfish. SASSY SUZZE finished second at odds of 12-1, while favorite STREAKIN KING CORONA took a wide trip to finish third. Also ran: LOUISIANAS LAST, TRS HOTSHOT ADAM, AIRIZON, TAKIN THE HIGH ROAD, and EYE SEE YOU DIPPING.

Habits Secret steals South Florida Quarter Horse Derby at 13-1 HABITS SECRET turned his form around to win the $208,090 South Florida Quarter Horse Derby on Hialeah Park’s closing card. After finishing off the board in two of his last three starts, the 3-year-old colt took an early lead and kicked away to win by daylight in the stretch. Habits Secret is a son of No Secrets Here out of Apollo mare Habitual Dreamer. He is conditioned by owner Ricardo Martinez and was booted to the win by Alejandro Luna, who was making his debut at the track. The pair completed the 440-yard distance in 21.540 seconds. Habits Secret went off at odds of 13-1, and paid $28.40, $13.40, and $7.60. HEY LIST was second, and JAMES ON THE RUN survived a photo for third place. Heavily-favored CARVERSON was sixth. Also ran: MI ANGELA, RAWHIDE CREEK, CARVERSON, JESSARACEAWAY, NOMOMONKEYBIZNESS, STREAKIN CARTER, and PANTHER SPEED. Hesawinner lives up to his name in Roble Rojo Bonus Challenge Bettors’ choice HESA WINNER lived up to his name in Sunday’s $20,850 Roble Rojo Bonus Challenge Stakes, taking command early under Gerardo Garrido and never looking back. Hesa Winner is trained by owner Eduardo Morales. “I have lots of confidence,” said Christine Morales, Eduardo’s wife. Christine reported she was sure Hesa Winner would handle the extra 50 yards after the 250-yard Beautiful Prairie Stakes. Morales said the gelding would ship to Delta Downs in Louisiana next. The son of Stoli lost the Beautiful Prairie Stakes at Hialeah on January 20 by just a neck to Bps Jumpin Frisco in his last start. His most recent win came over a year ago in an optional claimer at Hialeah Park in January 2012. Bred in Texas by Jerry Windham, Hesa Winner is out of Apollo mare Apollos Winner. The even money favorite bested SPEED SMITH and third-place finisher GOLD RRRUSH. Hesawinner paid $4.00, $3.40, and $3.00. Also ran: JAZZY SIXES, REBAS A ROCKIN, WAVING AT THE CHICKS, SIXES QUICK JOLLA, and JESS ON A HIGH. Mr. Commando scores major surprise in Hialeah Invitational Championship The star-studded field in the $75,000 Hialeah Invitational Championship was shocked by 23-1 upset winner when MR COMANDO took the lead in the stretch and fought off a tight pack of closers at the finish. “We knew that he could do it. We know him, and he’s a good horse. As you see, he only ran twice, so he was ready for this one,” said trainer Felix Barraza in the winner’s circle, referring to the fact that the horse has only started twice since October 2012 in preparation for the Invitational. Mr Comando finished second by a nose in the Signature Stakes at Hialeah, but ran a disappointing fourth in the Sawgrass Stakes two weeks ago. “He just said the horse will do the work,” rider Agustin Silva of Barraza’s pre-race instructions. The pack behind Mr Comando was so tightly-packed that a photo was needed to separate the second, third, and fourth place horses. Upon further examination, runner JOLTIN JESS was disqualified from third to sixth following a stewards inquiry into his activities in the stretch. SSTRICKORTREAT finished second, and FREAKING was placed third following the stewards’ inquiry. Mr Comando paid $48.20, $18.40, and $6.00. Mr Comando completed the 440 Invitational in 21.518 seconds. Barraza said the horse will move to Indiana Downs next. Also ran: BPS JUMPIN FRISCO, HONOR ME GOOD, FEATURE MY NEWS, ARBEKA RAINCLOUD, JESS A RUNNER, and NOWURTALKIN. Simulcasting will continue at Hialeah Park through Friday, April 5.

Barks N Bits with our favorite Jack Russel Terrier...

Oh, That Smile...... I was hoping to have a picture to share with you this month. It’s just really hard to get a smart phone camera to work well with paws. (Not quite as easy as the keyboard.) Maybe next month I can try again. You have got to see this dog smile. Duke, that is. To tell you the truth, it kind of freaks me out. I mean, really? How many dogs do you know that smile? He actually rolls his lip up and shows his teeth. I think the first time he grinned at them, the people thought maybe he was going to bite. But oh no, not Duke. He’s a big teddy bear. Now the people think it is so cute, they’ve even let him start sleeping on the back porch of the house. Next thing you know he’ll be on the couch with me! (That’s all I want to do after a nap...wake up to that big toothy grin...ahhh!) When it got really cold last month, the felt bad for him sleeping in the garage, so they moved his bed to the back porch where there is some

heat. I have to admit, it’s only fair. I don’t mind, really. He won me over last year with the way he was over the baby foals. Other than Duke’s promotion, it’s been somewhat calm around the ranch for the past month. Maybe that’s why the lady of the house started talking about bringing home another little dog for inside the house. I think she wants something to keep me company that is closer to my size. Little does she know, I am just fine the way things are! The last thing I need is another canine to try and keep in line. Good grief! And her other reason is because she says I’m not a “lap dog!” humph! Just because I only rest in her lap when I want and how long I want, she thinks she needs another little dog. Knowing my luck it will be another “Princess!” Heaven forbid.

and that’s when you can fins me doing research on-line. I have to admit, I get sidetracked and end up on You Tube way too often watching videos of little Jack Russell puppies! They are just so stinkin’ cute! And, yes, that cute one in the hat in the picture is me!

I’ve been hard at work this month helping the lady at the computer. She gets tired sometimes

With Raquel Rzeszotarski

s l e e &H

Spring is in the Air

Spring is in the air; although March often calls for weather that is often 60 degrees & sunny one day, freezing rain the next & followed by some snow. I’m craving brighter colors, blazers, jackets & fun accessories. Whether you have an awards banquet coming up, a date, a party or any special occasion, I have the wardrobe & the perfect cowboy boots for you.

e s i o u a TurqA u q or

Turquoise or aqua is always a cheerful color, if you can find a leather jacket in a bright color it will become one of your statement pieces year after year. The cowboy boots are by Corral from PFI Western store & I love the height.

Fringe it Up This outfit features a pair of leopard Anderson Bean cowboy boots, a fringe bag & maroon jeans. Maroon is a versatile color that can be worn year round. When you pair it with softer tans & blues it becomes “spring friendly”. Although fringe was very popular last year, I don’t see it going out of style anytime soon. Page 24


FASHION SECTION

Office to Date Night If you are looking to wear something that can go from the office to date night this is your outfit. It features a pair of delaCav cowboy boots, traditional blazer & an Aztec print skirt. You can go to the office with a your hair in a loose bun & then at night let it down & add some volume. Floral print is something we are going to see a lot of this year. While floral pants tend to be a bit more daring, I chose a blazer to pair with these Tony Lama cowboy boots. The boots have such a vintage feel to them & remind me of something Dale Evans would have had. If you want specifics on where to find any of these boots or pieces please feel free to send me an email.

"Meet the girl behind Horses & Heels" I’m Raquel; I live out there where the city meets the country. One day I’m wearing stilettos, the next day it’s spurs. 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.

“I Don’t Have Crooked Legs”

On March 1st, my first children’s book, “I Don’t Have Crooked Legs” will be available. The book is a story of a little filly born “windswept” (with crooked legs). I’ve printed an excerpt from the chapter when Kit Kat (the star) of the story first hears the words “crooked legs” used to describe her. Retail outlets have not been determined yet, but you can contact me directly to purchase the book or go on cinchphotographs.com to buy “I Don’t Have Crooked Legs” or my first book, “Looking: A Soul’s Journey”.

uring the rest of the morning and early afternoon, she’d run back and forth; then she’d realize how tired she was and curl up on the ground for a nap while mom stood and watched over her. When the nap was over, she’d feel all big and strong again; and away she’d go, back and forth. “Mom, this is the best day ever! This is amazing.” “Wait, just a minute”, she thought as she skidded to a stop in the dirt, “What is that sound? It sounds kinda like the humans’ laughing. No, this sounds meaner, not so nice.” She looked down to the other end of the arena and saw two small faces, about the same size as hers, looking at her through the gate. She realized this had to be Pistol and Sweet Pea. They were talking to each other; then gesturing toward Kit Kat; then laughing and talking more. “Mom, can I run down to see them? I’ve heard them, but never have seen them or met them. I’d really like to show them how fast I am.” There was something different about mom’s look. She softly and gently said, “You can if you want; but you might want to stay here with me.” And, then, because she was so smart, it came to her. They were laughing at her. And, it wasn’t a nice laugh like the humans laughed when they looked at her so lovingly. It had a mean sound to it. She hung her head low and walked slowly to a place behind mom where she knew they couldn’t see her.

Ask the Vet wi t h Dr. Steve Fi s ch Let’s Review: Why A Breeding Soundness Exam? Article By Dr. Steve Fisch, DVM

A

s the new year rolls in, many breeders are considering adding new mares to the broodmare band and some new stallions off the track are heading to the breeding shed. If these new mares are not pregnant then a breeding soundness exam (BSE) is usually a good investment that can prevent a lot of wasted time and money that is spent trying to get a mare pregnant that actually has some reproductive issues that can keep her from becoming pregnant. A BSE should also be performed on mares that failed to become pregnant or carry a foal to term in the previous breeding season. It is equally important for stallions to have a (BSE) before the upcoming breeding season. Waiting until breeding season is underway and having mares start showing up not pregnant not a good idea. Dr. Joe Fisch collecting a stallion for BSE and Dr. Steve Fisch handling the stallion. Each BSE should be designed to fit the individual mare or stallion and the situation that is presented. Keep in mind that the results of a BSE cannot be feeds the foal. The vulvar conformation should be evaluated as some used to guarantee the fertility of any mare or stallion. A BSE can only mares and especially older or thin mares will have vulvas that tip be used to evaluate the potential fertility of the mare or foal at the time forward or have poor vulvar tone. Some mares have a sunken anus. All of the examination. these defects predispose the mare to uterine infections. History is always an important part of a BSE. In the case of the mare BSE it is important to know when the mare has previously been pregnant and if there were any years she did not produce a live foal, what years those were. It is also helpful to know the breeding management program the mare has been under in past breeding years. The physical exam part of the BSE begins with an overall evaluation of the mares condition including body weight and condition of the teeth since dental health is directly related to body condition. A mare is more likely to become pregnant if her weight is good and she is actually gaining weight at the time of conception. If the mare is too thin or too fat her nutritional program should be adjusted accordingly. The mare’s external genitalia should be examined including the mammary glands as the mammary glands will produce the milk which 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.

The internal portion of the exam includes a thorough palpation and ultrasound exam. The uterus and ovaries are examined to make sure they are normal size and shape. The ultrasound exam allows the uterus to be examined for uterine fluid, uterine cysts and other abnormalities. This part of the exam allows for the determination of the stage of the mare’s cycle. The next part of the exam is the vaginal speculum exam. This allows visualization of the vagina, vestibule, and cervix to check for adhesions, urine pooling and varicose veins. At this point a uterine culture and cytology is performed. These tests give information that can identify uterine bacterial or fungal infections. If the mare has a history of infertility, a uterine biopsy is probably indicated as long as there is enough time to allow about sixty days between the biopsy and breeding the mare.

When all the lab results are in and they have been combined with the physical exam findings, an intelligent evaluation can be made of the mare’s chances to maintain a full term pregnancy or to produce an embryo for embryo transfer. The data can also help determine a treatment plan for mares with uterine infections. These treatments may include antibiotic therapy, caslick’s surgery, acupuncture and a multitude of other treatments that will be decided on with the owner and veterinarian putting all the pieces of the puzzle together. Additional hormonal therapy may be added before or during breeding season. BSE of the stallion also includes a thorough history from previous years and any medications the stallion may have been on while racing or showing if he is a retiring race or show horse. The history should include the previous breeding management programs, the number of mares bred, the first cycle pregnancy rate and the seasonal pregnancy rate for all previous breeding seasons. The stallions temperament and ease of collection should be part of the history. Just as with the mare, body condition and overall health is important. The stallion’s BSE includes examination of the stallion’s genitalia, semen collection and collection of samples for culture along with an Equine Viral Arteritis test. The cultures are taken from the stallion’s semen, prepuce, urethra and urethral fossa. These cultures allow the identification of any bacteria that are growing in the reproductive tract that may affect fertility. The EVA test can be taken with a blood sample. If it comes up negative then the negative test should be documented and the stallion vaccinated with an approved EVA vaccine. Most breeding farms require incoming shipped semen to be from EVA negative and vaccinated stallions. If the blood sample comes up positive for EVA because of a previous vaccination that was undocumented, the semen can be tested for EVA viral isolation. If the stallion is truly EVA negative but tested blood positive because of a previous vaccination, the semen viral isolation test will prove he is EVA negative. The libido and ability to mount a breeding phantom or live mare is evaluated. While the stallion is being prepared for semen collection his penis is evaluated for any abnormalities or injury. If there has been more than a week since the stallion’s previous collection, a second collection should be performed an hour or so after the first so that a more accurate estimate of daily sperm output (DSO) can be obtained. DSO is used to predict the number of mares a stallion can impregnate in a breeding season. DSO can also be estimated by measuring the size of the testicles with ultrasonography. Testicular size is directly related to DSO. Ultrasonography of the testicles allows for evaluation of any abnormalities such as tumors or scar tissue from previous injuries. The semen is evaluated for color, morphology, volume, concentration, raw and extended motility. The motility is evaluated for total progressively motile sperm. The semen is also evaluated for its ability to survive shipping, cooling and freezing if shipping and freezing semen enter into his reproductive management plan. If the BSE is being performed because of subpar fertility then other tests such as endoscopy, biopsy, sperm chromatin structure assay and hormonal analysis may be indicated. Just as with the mare BSE, the final evaluation is done when all the tests results are available. Also like the mare, the stallion BSE does not guarantee a stallion’s reproductive abilities but it can be a good predictor of a stallion’s ability to impregnate mares. The results of all the tests will determine how many mares he can breed per day and per breeding season. Top: Dr. Joe Fisch examining semen for morphology, % live/ dead, and % progressively motile sperm; Bottom: Dr. Steve Fisch extending semen to evaluate for cooling and ability to ship in an Equitainer

While a BSE requires some time and financial investment, it is usually well worth the time and money to know where the mare and stallion stand reproductively before they are well into the breeding season. Working together with your equine reproductive veterinarian can go a long way toward having a successful breeding season. Page 29

I N D I A N A Quarter Horse Racing There are many exciting changes coming to Indiana Quarter Horse Racing in 2013. In this section, we’ll address three areas of change including IHRC, MARKETING and RACING IN INDIANA.

INDIANA HORSE RACING COMMISSION – The 2013 Quarter

Horse Breed Development Program was presented and unanimously approved by the Commission at the February 22nd IHRC meeting. Additionally, the following Rule Changes were presented by the Quarter Horse Breed Development Advisory Committee and approved by the Commission.

71 IAC 14.5-3-5 – Open Stakes Bonus Repealed – There will no longer be a bonus paid to Indiana Bred Horses that Qualify for an Open Stake Race.

MARKETING

71 IAC 14.5-3-4 – Purse Supplement in open races – A purse supplement of Þfteen thousand dollars ($15,000) is to be paid to the owner of an Indiana bred that Þnishes Þrst, second or third when competing in any open overnight race, excluding trials and claiming races. The supplement shall be distributed in the same manner and percentages in which purses are paid.

The New “inQ” logo featured in this month’s Horse Resource Magazine is the new face of Quarter Horse Racing in the State of Indiana. This new look is just the beginning of some signiÞcant changes that will be rolled out in the 2013 marketing plan of the Quarter Horse Racing Association of Indiana. The new plan aims to customize relevant content to the individual needs of the many partners that are connected to Quarter Horse Racing in the State of Indiana. In order to accomplish this, we’ve developed the new brand we call “inQ”. It will serve as the gateway to the fast-paced world of Indiana Quarter Horse Racing. With its bold, yet simplistic design, “inQ” is ushering in the new era of horse racing in the United States, being led by Indiana’s Quarter Horse Program.

RACING IN INDIANA IN 2013 – The acquisition of Indiana Downs and it’s casino in Shelbyville, Indiana was Þnalized on February 20th by Indianapolis-based Centaur Holdings, LLC. Centaur also owns Hoosier Park in Anderson. Along with this announcement, Rod Ratcliff , Centaur Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, announced the following personnel: John Schuster is the GM of Racing at Indiana Downs, Rick Moore is the GM of Racing at Hoosier Park, and Brian Elmore is the VP of Racing for Centaur.

Indiana Downs will be home for Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred Racing in 2013 – From the day the track opens for training to the last day of racing in October, Quarter Horses and TB’s will be running at Indiana Downs. No more transitioning from track to track in July. There will be more barns built at Indiana Downs to create 300 more stalls, but until they are ready, there will be stalls rented at Turfway Park to accommodate some horses in training. Indiana Downs is footing the bill for the stall rent and Daily Vans to get horses to Indiana Downs for racing.

Quarter Horse Racing Dear Quarter Horse Racing Enthusiast, I wanted to take some time to personally Þll you in on some details of the day to day runnings of the Quarter Horse Racing Association of Indiana. There have been many great changes and additions to our industry in the past month, here are just a few: Our board of Directors has been busy over the past month and I am happy to report to you that we have three new members who have joined our team. I wanted to congratulate Patrick Rowels for being elected to serve on the board of directors for a 3 year term. I also wanted to congratulate Vic Conway and Candice Newell on being appointed to the board by our president, Chris Duke, after FebruaryÕs board meeting. We are excited at the prospect of their addition and look forward to working with them to further Quarter Horse Racing in the state of Indiana. I have some additional information regarding the new additions to Indiana Downs. The new barns at Indiana Downs are scheduled to be completed by July 29th. In order to accommodate all the horses this spring, as part of the transition plan, Centaur will rent 150 stalls from Turfway Park in neighboring Kentucky. The Indiana allotment, along with commitments from other horsemen, will allow Turfway to remain open as a training center. Indiana Downs will be footing the bill for the stall rental and the transportation of horses from Turfway to Indy Downs for racing. In the area of news related to our races this year, the Indiana Downs Stake Race Schedule has been released! The Þrst nominations are due by April 1st, so mark your calendar and get them in so you arenÕt faced with a late fee, or possibly get left out of the action. Scott Piene, the racing secretary at Indiana Downs is working on the Condition Books and they will be ready around the 3rd week in March. They will also be available online at QHRAI.NET and INDIANADOWNS.COM. The track is tentatively set to open for training around March 17th. We will keep updates on QHRAI.NET. This year there are 6 days designated for All Quarter Horse Race Days in addition to the normal races we run at the end of the TB card. Check out the Indiana Downs Race Calendar in this Magazine for race dates and post times. April 5-7, 2013 marks the historic 35th year for the Hoosier Horse Fair & Expo at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. The Quarter Horse Racing Association of Indiana will be there once again to promote the great sport of Quarter Horse Racing to many people who are already in the horse world. We will have many promotions that are geared towards increasing attendance at the live races! Youth Day Applications are currently available on the QHRAI website! If you have a son or daughter, neighbor, niece, nephew, grandchild, or if you are between the ages of 14 and 18 years old and want to see Þrsthand the behind the scenes process of our racing industry, please Þll out the application in this magazine or online. This experience includes helping race horses in training and the opportunity to help a trainer get his horse ready for a race and participate in the paddock walk with the trainer and the horse. Youth day is going to be June 15th and the Quarter Horse Racing Association of Indiana is proud to partner with Indiana Downs to host this event. Finally, the Legislative Session is now in full swing and will be until the end of April. This year, as in every year since the passing of racinos, the Horse Racing Industry is at risk of having the money that the track puts into the horse racing purse accounts reduced. Now is the time to contact your legislators and tell them about the amount of money you personally put into the Indiana Economy because you race horses. Tell them that you contribute to the one billion dollars of total economic impact and that any reduction in the amount of money that is dedicated to horse racing will cause a greater loss to Indiana. Ask them to support the current agreement that is between the race tracks and the horsemen. Looking forward to seeing you at the track this month! Michelle Collins

How long have you been riding: “Since I could sit up and hold onto the saddle horn.” Then when I was 4 yrs old, I did Junior rodeo. I participated in barrel racing, pole bending, mutton busting and goat tying. We had so much fun doing that. All the rodeos in the mud, camping with friends hanging out with all our horse friends. Who taught you to ride: My parents, Kenny and Jamie Jarrell. When I could barely sit up, they would put me on our miniature pony, Muffin, and lead me around the yard. I had her for 13 years, she died last fall. Goals: To accomplish what my mom has. To be a State Champion, to win the All American Quarter Horse Congress and to rodeo and eventually make it to the NFR, in Vegas. Who is your mentor? My mother, Jamie. She is the one that taught me how to ride and run barrels and poles. Also Jeanette Smith has influenced my life and she was also the lady that influenced mother. She has probably forgotten more than I will ever know about horses. Other Animals: My cat, “Martha Jane”, my dog Rucker (Corgi), and Scooter, the 32 year old gray mare I rode in Junior Rodeo. Favorite show: Cloverdale. Why? Because it has a nice big arena, nice barn. Great place to show at and very clean stalls. Love it all being under one roof. What do you want to do after High School? I want to go to college at Purdue University and study to become a Vet. Hopefully to become as successful as Dr. Brad King. Activities outside of horses: Zumba, running cross country, hang out with friends and shopping, also Playing with my brother, Jake and hanging out at the barn.

Clint

Clint is a graduate of East Central High School. His parents are Terrie VanVolkenburgh and respectively Joe Trentman. He has grown up in the horse world, both parents have rode almost all their life...Clint's grandfather as some of you may remember was the late Terry VanVolkenburgh, who would run up and down the fences when his daughters would run barrels. Clint began barrel racing at the age of 4 with a pony, then went on to particpate in Jr. Rodeo and his favorite event was the sheep riding, hard to believe he is now a barrel racer. He has won the Ohio Youth NBHA and Indiana Youth and Open NBHA , he has also won the Congress youth barrel four times, and was runner up in the Congress Sweepstakes. He placed at Josey Jr. world numerous times, and won the NBHA Youth World 1D in 2006. He loves to barrel race and is now trying his hand at the futurities. In Clint's spare time he mows grass for a part time job and is also very active in his church where he and his cousins are bible school helpers. Clint also volunteers one day a week at a school in Cincinatti where he spends time tutoring other kids in reading.

GRACE HASLER NHSRA OFFICER

MAKING MEMORIES OF A LIFETIME

If you had told me 12 months ago, that I would travel to Las Vegas and attend two rounds of the National Finals Rodeo, that I would get Tuff Cooper’s autograph and hang out with Luke Branquino in the NHSRA booth, that I would visit the fountains at the Bellagio, the canal in the Venitian, and see the volcano at the Mirage, I would have laughed at you. If you had told me 12 months ago that I would be at the Fort Worth Stock Yards watching long-horned cattle driven up the brick streets, that I would hang out with the NHSRA National Queen, Maicie Bullock , would meet Tod Sloan and chat about saddles, attend the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, and give a power point presentation to a room full of National Directors from all over the country and Canada, I would have told you that you were crazy. But that is exactly what has happened; and these are just a few of my experiences since being elected the National High School Association’s Junior High Secretary. Hi! I am Grace Hasler and I am a member of Indiana’s NHSRA Junior High Team and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you more about this amazing association. Being a member of the National High School Rodeo Association Junior High Division has been a life-changing experience for me! I encourage anyone, with interest in the sport of rodeo in the 6th, 7th or 8th grade, to join our Indiana NHSRA Junior High Team. Our Indiana Junior High Team competes in six two-day rodeos (total of twelve) rodeos each year beginning in September and ending in April with our Indiana NHSRA Junior High State Finals. The majority of our rodeos are held in conjunction with the Indiana Junior Rodeo Association, two weekends are with our Indiana High School Association, and the Junior High Indiana team travels to Kentucky in March each year for the Quad State Rodeo which includes Jr. High teams from Kentucky, 2012-2013 NHSRA National Secretary Illinois, and Mis2012 Indiana NHSRA JH Rookie of the Year souri.

at the National Finals Rodeo held at Red Rock Park in Gallup, New Mexico at the end of June. Our complete schedule can be seen on the IJRA website, ijra.org. The National Junior High Finals Rodeo, in New Mexico, has grown into one of the largest rodeos in the country welcoming 900+ competitors from 41 states, 5 Canadian provinces and Australia. There are also many scholarship opportunities for members of the NHSRA Junior High Division. Professional’s Choice offers an Equine Athlete of the Month and a Student Athlete of the Month; giving away a 4-pack of SMB Elite Sport Medicine Boots and an Air-Ride pad 12 times each year. Of the 12 finalists, a “Equine Athlete of the Year” and a “Student Athlete of the Year” for Professional’s Choice are chosen and awarded a $1000 scholarship each. Cinch & Lubrisyn both give away several scholarships and National Student officers receive college scholarships, as well. After being encouraged by my friend, Sydney Hurley, the 2010-2011 National Secretary, I was hooked. We created campaign posters, stickers, buttons and bought a lot of candy to hand out at the National Finals in New Mexico. My sister, Mel, and my Ribbon Roping partner, Trevor Colby, gave me plenty of “material” on the 24 hour trip to Nationals, to write the two speeches that each candidate is required to give. My teammates from Indiana and my friends from Kentucky, handed out countless stickers and candy; encouraging delegates from all over the country to vote for me. The experience has been awesome and I would be thrilled to help anyone interested in running for an office this year. For more information on the NHSRA go to www.nhsra.org.

LANE McPHEETERS INDIANA’S FIRST NATIONAL CHAMPION

me and my buddies sat there and watched the last two guys. As soon as the last guy went, I knew I had it won.” Lane’s time of 2.073 seconds moved him to the lead in the round and the average and cinched his National Title.

I would like to introduce you to Indiana’s First NHSRA Junior High National Champion, Lane McPheeters! Lane is a freshman from Salem, Indiana where he lives with his mom and dad, Chuck and Lori McPheeters, and his three younger brothers, Layton, Landon and Roper. Lane competed in the Southern Indiana Junior Rodeo from kindergarten, through 8th grade, and competed in the Indiana Junior Rodeo for the past three years. Throughout his Jr. Rodeo years, he brought home 9 All Around Titles, 5 Saddles and over 50 buckles. He played football when he was younger, but has given that up to rodeo full time and has recently started training rope horses after school and on weekends. Lane won the Chute Dogging National Title at the 2012 NHSRA Junior High National Finals in Gallup, New Mexico. However, if you ask Lane what he really likes to do, he will tell you he is a roper. “I’m a roper, and nearly everyone I know is a roper. I’m big and strong, so I was pretty good at Chute Dogging. But I’m done with that for now.” He spent all of his time preparing for Nationals roping calves every day. Chute Dogging was just an event he did to earn extra points towards his all around. Bringing home a National Championship and a Tod Slone trophy saddle in Chute Dogging isn’t too shabby for a kid whose passion is roping. The competitors at the NHSRA Finals compete in two rounds throughout the week-long rodeo, to qualify in the top twenty to run in the Short Go, or Final Round, on Saturday. Lane won the first round with a 2.064-second run. He recorded a time of 3.277 seconds in the second round which left him with a time of 5.341 seconds on two head and moved him into the finals sitting in third place. “The short round was moving pretty fast, so it was kind of a blur,” Lane said. “After my run,

Lane qualified for the Finals in four events: Chute Dogging, Ribbon Roping, Team Roping and Tie-Down Roping. He took eighth in the first round of Tie-Down with an 11.844 -second run. He finished 28th in the average in the event. In Ribbon Roping, he teamed with Anna Dietrich to take 14th in the second round with a 9.673-second run. The two placed 22nd in the final average standings in that event. Now that Lane is in high school, he plans to spend the next year or two concentrating on open rodeos and ropings before returning to NHSRA competition in his junior year. Indiana is so proud of its First National Champion, Lane McPheeters; and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for this Indiana cowboy! Lane’s favorite quote: “Satisfaction is the death of desire”

Rodeo News from the

Indiana High School Rodeo Association

Mid-Winter Wrap Up What a great winter it has been so far! I am extremely excited for the upcoming spring season! But first here is a recap of our winter events so far: In January, myself and our Queen Camrie Goodson, and our Secretary Korri Allen traveled to the great state of Texas for the national mid winter meeting for the NHSRA. It was an amazing experience and I am so glad we were given that opportunity. We met a lot of amazing new friends, and got to explore the town of Fort Worth. Our first visit was to the cowboy hall of fame, and the ever-famous Billy Bob’s Texas. My favorite part of our trip was getting the chance to go to the Fort Worth Stock Show. The arena was amazing, and it was by far the coolest pro rodeo I had ever seen. My other favorite part of our trip was to meet with officers from all over the country and make new friends. But getting down to business, we attended many important meetings where there were rule book changes, schedule changes for nationals, and new and interesting ideas for gaining more membership. It is always cool to see behind the scenes of what makes an amazing association, like the National High School rodeo association, run. There are so many hardworking people who have put in so much of their time and effort into making

Page 44


IHSRA NEWS this association a functioning machine, and this association could not run with out their sacrificing attitudes. Our own mid winter meeting in February was a huge success! We started off with our normal board meeting, then we had the membership meeting. We there elected new officers for our board, and gave the general membership a recap of newly made decisions, and us officers who traveled to Texas, gave a recap of our trip. Then after a comical scholarship fundraising game, the parents went to their silent auction while the students had their annual cowboy prom. It was a fun time, and I am sad that that will be my final mid winter meeting for high school rodeo because they are always such memorable experiences. I am looking forward to our spring schedule and can’t wait to get back into the rodeo swing! I wish all of our contestants the best of luck and a happy spring season!! Katie George, IHSRA Student President

Mid-Winter Meeting NHSRA, Fort Worth, TX This year I had the privilege of traveling with the Indiana High School Rodeo Student Officers to Texas. The reason we went to Fort Worth was because it was the National High School Rodeo Mid-Winter Meeting. Last year the meeting was held in Denver, Colorado. I had the privilege of traveling to Texas with my mother Lola Goodson, as our chaperone. This trip was my first time ever flying or even going to the airport. I will admit I was scared; I had never been on a plane. It was scary but everyone at the Louisville Airport was very nice. I felt my nerves fading away, and as I boarded the airplane I knew this was going to be one of the most amazing journeys. My mom was by my side the whole way, I still wonder if she has any feeling in her hand anymore. When we arrived at The Dallas Airport we had one wild shuttle ride to our Hotel in Fort Worth. We then met up with our Indiana National High School Rodeo Director Terry Haller, and Indiana High School Rodeo Student President Katie George, and Student Secretary Korri Allen. Our Indiana High School Rodeo Vice-President Strand Barricklow was not able to attend the trip to Texas due to winter sports. Our first official day in Fort Worth, Texas was spent attending meetings. We had to get up very early, our very first meeting was the Queen Committee, which started at 8am. The members of the National Queen Committee discussed any changes and new details for the NHSFR in 2013. I then attended the Youth Advisory Meeting with Katie, Korri, and Terry. After the meeting we all relaxed and did a little swimming. That night we attended the opening night of “The Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo”. The rodeo runs from Jan.18th to Feb 9th every night. It made our night to see J.W. Harris and all the Wright rodeo boys. Day two in Texas was a guided tour of the Stockyards in Fort Worth. It was quite amazing! We rode two huge tour buses and went down in to the heart of the Stockyards. Pam Mackey, owner of Billy Bob’s and a famous cowgirl, was our tour guide; we first went to the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame. Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame honors numerous Texas men and women who have excelled in the sport of rodeo, cutting, ranching, and sport medicine. We toured some of the Stockyards and was served some great tasting barbecue for lunch at Billy Bob’s Texas. Our National Director, Terry Haller, treated us to dinner in the Stockyards eating district and then we walked over to Billy Bob’s for the Lee Brice concert.

Day three in Texas, the officers spent most of the day touring all of the Stockyards shops. We had a blast, shopped til we dropped, and took many funny pictures. The furniture shops in Texas gave me an insight into what my home will look like in the future. That night we attended the Banquet and Action for the NHSRA. We had a lot of fun with a head and tales game and the auction was quite funny while raising money for the association. Day four was a sad day, it was the day we had to pack up and leave the great state of Texas and all the new friends we had made. If you have never been to the Dallas Airport it was huge. We first waited for Korri and Katie to board their flight home to Indianapolis then we boarded a tram to the other side of the airport to board our flight back home. My trip to Texas was amazing, it was an honor to go and represent our great state of Indiana. It was a blast to get to catch up with the queens after not seeing each other since Nationals in Wyoming. It was great to meet the other student officers, and talk about how they handle things inside their state. To all the rodeo contestants, think about running for an office, to represent your State and the opportunity to attend this National Meeting, it is a great way to learn how the organization works and all the fantastic folks who work hard to make our High School Rodeos possible. No matter how much I liked Texas there is still is no better place than home, in Indiana. Miss Indiana High School Rodeo Queen 2012-2013 Camrie Goodson

CHRISTIAN COWBOY COLLECTION

Misplace Something?

w/ Christa Conway

How frustrating is that? You head out to the barn to saddle up your favorite mount and as you’re grooming away the dirt and dust, you look down and notice something isn’t right. One, two, three......only three shoes. Where is that fourth shoe? Then you realize that you probably need to go look for the ever elusive shoe in he pasture. We’ve all been there...walking circles in a dry lot or combing through a grassy pasture with some form of metal detection - be it metal detector, magnet or rake. Sometimes I’ll saddle up another horse and ride out to look from a higher vantage point. Thank God my turn out lots aren’t that big. That’s not the only thing I find myself out looking for around the barn. When there are several people pitching in to do chores, it seems that things get moved often. Sometimes I’m looking for my favorite green apple picker...I call it “Squeaky Green.” (It squeaks when I’m cleaning stalls. What? You mean you don’t have a pet name for your favorite stall fork? You may not be spending enough time together! lol!) There are several days out of the month when I am looking for a hoof pick - you know - that one that was just hanging on that nail and now it’s not. And then there’s my favorite, the disappearing wire cutters. I think I have twenty pair of those things....all in different colors. I just don’t know where any of them are hiding. Needless to say, I spend way too much time searching for things that have been misplaced, sometimes by me and sometimes by others. That is just in the barn....don’t get me started on the house! It is like that in our faith walk. Just like those wire cutters that we don’t realize are missing until we need to cut some baling wire...so goes our faith.

to travel. Whether it’s in the form of family issues or illness, that’s when we sometimes forget where we put our faith. I mean, last week things may have been going along just like we planned and our faith was placed in our job or our significant other or even in our own abilities. God has a way of getting our attention and reminding us that we need to be placing our faith in Him.

How many times do we think about trusting God to meet our needs when we have plenty in the bank? It’s easy to get wrapped up in life and misplace our trust in earthly things to meet our needs. But when we run a little short on funds, we start looking where we should have been placing our trust all along.

When people we love let us down, it’s easy to realize that we may have misplaced our priorities and that we’ve focused our love on another person and put that relationship before our relationship with God. (I’m not saying that we shouldn’t love others, but God should come first.)

Or how about when things seem to take a turn down a road we didn’t expect to have

Have you misplaced any of these things lately? Trust, Faith, Love? I know I have....

Page 46

and I also know where they should be. I’m hoping that I can do better at keeping them where they belong...hopefully a lot better than I do at keeping my wire cutters, hoof picks and stall forks in their places. How about you? Proverbs 3:5 (KJV) Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding Mark 11:22 (KJV) And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. Matthew 22:37 (KJV) Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Happy Trails & God Bless! Christa


On the Trail

By Brother Brad Curtis of Mountain Top Cowboy Church

RIDE DEVIL RIDE Ol` Red saddled up Said I’m headed East I know I can find it Ridin` this ugly beast

Red rode for days Lookin` for David’s sin He kept sayin` I’ll find it With that devilish grin

So when Red brings up your past Remind him it’s hidden well You’re headed to Heaven And he’s rindin` into Hell

Now I know the Big Boss Said your sin was removed But I’m sure I’ll find it And your past will be proved

Then the day came Red was ridin` West He never found David’s sin It was the end of his quest

Psalms 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

David laughed and said good luck The Big Boss hid it well But Red you’re in for a ride On that beast from hell

Then ol` Red remembered From East to West has no end He couldn’t find David’s past So he couldn’t be condemned

By: Bro. Brad Curtis 10/15/11 Vilonia, AR

Ol` Red gave him some iron The beast was breathing fire They were heading East The beast and the liar

Red then let a roar His beast kicked toward the sky When ol` Red hit the ground He began to fry

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

She knows her job and will get it done for you. She set an arena record and has won and placed at a lot of pro rodeos and barrel races. She qualified me for 2 finals. She is more like a 15 year old because she was turned out for a year before I bought her so she is in great shape....she is automatic and would make a great Jr rodeo, High school or professional rodeo horse.

“The Jockey Club is committed to bringing some of our sport’s best races to a national television audience, and we are proud to be underwriting the Road to the Kentucky Derby again this spring in collaboration with the NBC Sports Group and six racetracks,” said Ogden Mills Phipps, chairman of The Jockey Club. “Increasing the television presence of Thoroughbred racing is one of the fan development initiatives we have embraced over the past 18 months, and we will continue to aggressively cross-promote Thoroughbred racing not only on television but also on a variety of traditional and new digital media platforms.” “These important prep races build excitement and interest in the Kentucky Derby and they also complement the NBC Sports Group’s coverage of the sport of Thoroughbred racing, which already includes longterm deals for the Triple Crown races and Breeders’ Cup as well as races from Saratoga,” said Jon Miller, president, programming, NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network. Increased television coverage of Thoroughbred racing and the development of a new digital media strategy were among nine major recommendations identified in the major economic study of the Thoroughbred industry that was commissioned by The Jockey Club and conducted in association with the management consulting firm McKinsey & Company in 2011.

Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation Launches 5th Annual “Haydrive” Saratoga Springs, NY (February 13, 2013) - The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF) announces its 5th Annual Haydrive campaign to fund hay costs for its 950 retired racehorses. Because of record drought conditions and a resulting national hay shortage, TRF expects its hay budget to increase by 50% over last year. The goal for this year’s Haydrive is to raise $144,000 by May 31, 2013. Providing ample, high quality forage is the key to keeping pasture-kept retired racehorses warm and healthy through winter. Hay is TRF’s single largest feed-related expense, with an average TRF horse eating 22 pounds of it daily. “Our biggest farm cares for 200 Thoroughbreds and has been forced to purchase hay from up to 700 miles away,” explains TRF Herd Manager Sara Davenport. “Transportation costs for hay are continuing to rise as winter progresses, making this campaign especially crucial.” The Haydrive is the perfect opportunity for horse lovers and racing fans who want to support racehorse retirement efforts. “Whether a donor can contribute enough for a single bale or a wagonload, 100% of it is literally going straight into the horses’ mouths,” notes the TRF’s Annual Fund Director, Lisa Craig. “Just $10 will buy a bale and feed one of our horses for two or three days, so there’s no such thing as a contribution that’s ‘too small.’” To learn more or make a donation, visit www.trfinc.org/haydrive or call (518) 226-0028. About The Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation For 30 years, the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (TRF) has been dedicated to saving Thoroughbred horses, no longer able to compete on the racetrack, from possible neglect, abuse, and slaughter. TRF has provided a safe haven for over 4,000 Thoroughbreds and currently cares for more than 950 horses nationwide. Nine of its farms are located at state correctional facilities, where inmates and parolees participate in a vocational training program in equine care and stable management.

Have A Seat Photo Submitted by Debbie Owens

There’s Beauty in Everything....

When John Clemans sent us his email with the subject line “something a little different” we had to take a look. Below are pictures of what John calls his “Zen -poop garden.” After taking a job cleaning a stables in Idaho, John loved being around the horses, but felt discouraged from the never ending task that comes with keeping a stable clean. While cleaning stalls one day, he prayed and asked God to take the feeling of discouragement away. Later that day an idea came to him that he could make different designs with the “leftovers.” It takes John from two to four weeks to complete a project. Once it is complete, John takes a photo and then it is pushed up into the ever growing manure pile and he starts all over again with something new. That just goes to show you that if you look hard enough, you can find beauty in everything.

We Have A Winner!!

Good luck!

We had a great response for last month’s Mystery of the Month. Several people knew this family! Maybe because of them being former Hoosiers (or did you know that?) - but most likely from all of their success in the hores industry. Our Mystery family would be none other than the Burgers. This photo was taken in 1986 at the AQHA World Show. The horse in this picture is “Show Um The Gold.” Mary won the AQHA World Championship barrel racing in 1985 & 1986 on this horse. With Show Um the Gold are Mary, Joey (age 7) and Kerry. (Not pictured is their son Todd.) Mary and Kerry have had lots of great success with their horses over the years. Mary was the AQHA World Champion in Barrels and Poles in 1974. More recently, most of you will remember watching Mary compete at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, NV. She competed on a horse called Rare Fred (then owned by Ron Martin.) That duo competed at three Nationals Finals. The years were 2006, 2008 & 2009. Lucky Scott knew our family and was the first to contact us with the correct information. Lucky chose to take a Free Subscription as his prize. Congrats, Lucky! There were several others who knew the answer to our Mystery, including: Judy Melvin, Robyn Adair, Karla Baker, Joe Pfefferman, Dick Zink, Brad & Jaime Roorda and Debby Garling. Thanks to Kerry and Mary Burger for sharing this photo with us. (photo by Harold Campton)

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!!
