From the Publisher – Priceless Moments

It’s an hour or two before dawn and the brisk winter air is nature’s alarm clock as it stings your face on the way to the barn. The stalls are eerily silent as you enter an aisle that is dark except for a faint light at the far end. You are greeted by sleepy nickers from the other residents as you pass them on the way to the illuminated stall. They all know why you are there and as you peer through the bars you know the eleven month journey was was worth every minute. There, before you, is your newborn foal.

The Krymsun Kruzer

“I’ve had studs for 30 years, and Kruzer is an exceptional horse. I really expect him to be the very best all-around sire for years to come.” That’s quite high praise coming from stallion manager Mike Hay considering The Krymsun Kruzer’s breeding career is still in its relative infancy. At the age of ten, the striking bay stallion, by One Hot Krymsun and out of Pure N Passion, has three foal crops on the ground, and Hot Shot Hit, Gracious N Fabulous, and Her Irons Are Hot are just a few of the great mares expecting foals in 2015.

Confessions Of A First Year Scribe

I was a former eye-roller. You know that conversation, when you’re sharing your opinion about a judge’s results and someone says that everyone should have to stand inside the ring, just once, to see what it’s really like? Cue the eye-roll. Admittedly, I wasn’t blessed with a poker face. Oddly enough, I have found the cure and it came while standing inside the ring.

Can a Boarding Contract Save a Horse’s Life?

Boarding contracts are very important documents. Among their many elements, these documents can establish payment schedules, confirm services that will be provided, address additional services and fees, identify late payment fees and interest on unpaid balances, explain health requirements for incoming horses, discuss stable-wide vaccination and de-worming programs, address how either party can terminate the contract, and many other elements. One very important clause, which boarding contracts sometimes miss, explains how the stable may handle veterinary emergencies when the owner cannot be reached.

On The Fence With Carol

Oh my goodness? It is October and we are approaching the end of the year. We are still in a dilemma with regard to our leadership. We haven’t heard anything regarding Don Treadway’s successor but we have hired a new staff member. He is Pete Kyle, a likeable horseman who I hear has thoughts about reorganization. We have either fired or shuffled around 14 members of our staff for reasons only known by those who AQHA feel necessary. It shouldn’t surprise any of you to hear that AQHA is still discussing more ‘levels’ of competition to further confuse our exhibitors and our show managers.
