Well Hello and HAPPY NEW YEAR to All!

Saddle UpI hope you had a great Christmas holiday and were very nice (or slightly naughty is okay!). Can’t tell you how many jigsaw puzzles I did during my time off… a very large stack for sure! But sooooo worth it – love my down time.

So it’s back to the real (horse) world now… and I look forward to what 2019 may bring! According to our What’s Happening? Let’s Go! calendar… it’s shaping up to be a busy year for many. If you have your event dates booked, let us know! Happy to print for all to see and plan around.

December was a sad month for me as I chose to put my mare “Bobbi” down (story on page 3). I believe it was a good decision, and the right time. So this year I will be more focused on the other two Morgan mares we have here. Hopefully. If work doesn’t get in the way!

Although this issue is a few less pages, it sure is packed with some interesting reading. I hope you enjoy it!

See you next month,
