Well July just flew by… and Christmas is 4 ½+ months away; and I will have to put away my whites one month from now.

Saddle Up

Seems like I just did my winter/summer (clothes) changeover! Do you all remember your mom telling you… you don’t wear white before the May long weekend, or after Labour Day? Always stuck with me.

This issue has a bit of everything, from the horse’s perspective in a barn… compassion for your horse… a bit of foot work… committing to your horse… minis to drafts, mules to gaited… Doctor demos… horsemanship of course… and even talk about generators!

Folks at the coast should be getting ready for their Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver starting August 18, while here we are awaiting our Interior Provincial Exhibition in Armstrong starting August 29. There are numerous fall fairs out there – I hope you enjoy yours!

Enjoy the rest of summer!
