It’s nice to see no more snow in the forecast...

Saddle Up 2016

and what we have is slowly melting and heading down our driveway – won’t be long before our seasonal creek appears again – it happens every spring. Not looking forward to it.

I just got back from the Quarter Horse Bazaar in Langley. What an action-packed, fun-filled day, in three arenas. The core of volunteers really do a great job – but I don’t understand why the crowds are not there. It was a beautiful sunny day – most say that horse people then stay home and go riding or start on their gardening with a ‘spring-like’ day like that. Maybe so, but with an event like that – it should be supported – you can ride (or garden) another day.

I wasn’t able to get up to the Kamloops Cowboy Festival this year – but I heard that they were expecting a big crowd (and a busload of 59 people from Alberta). Am sure Mark McMillan will send us a report for the May issue. “Oh… Mark???”

I’ll be off to the Mane Event in Red Deer at the end of this month. But of course I will keep my studded tires on… cause you never know with that Alberta weather! Do pop by the booth (1204) and say hi… please introduce yourself, I can’t remember everybody!

See you all out and about…
