February 15th Wrangler Club Meeting

We had a great February meeting and really learned a lot.

Thanks to our host and 4-H Mom Miss Diane Clare, our horsemanship instructor and good friend of 4-H, Mr. Clayton Stambaugh, and 4-H Dad and veterinarian Dr. Andy Cameron. We know all our members and their horses now have a good start on spring. Thanks to Dr. Cameron we will follow up ensuring that our horses are healthy and ready for a season of fun.

We welcomed our newest Wranglers, Sierra Knox, and Jessica Sexton to our club. We also all observed a moment of silence in honor of Turquoise Trail Wrangler Club Leader, Chad Winters. We announced that we will be dedicating our arena to Chad this spring and requested ideas for the dedication ceremony.

Please make sure you bring your filled out horse certificates to our March meeting (which will be announced later).

Our "hostess with the mostess".

Mr. Clayton Stambaugh instructs how to put his horse in reverse.

Wranglers and parents listen to Dr. Andy Cameron explain vaccinations, worming, travel documents and first aid kits for our horses.

Hi wranglers,
Hope all is well and you are keeping warm with this hopefully last blast of winter weather. Just to update you, due to an unexpected scheduling update, our guest clinician Mr. Rex Petersen will be unable to conduct our planned clinic this Sunday. HOWEVER will will still have our meeting at Diane's arena and will now have Dr. Andy Cameron DVM, coming to show us how to do wellness checks, how to and what to vaccinate for and generally getting our horses ready for spring from a VETS point of view.
Diane Clare, Clayton Strambaugh, Nancy and I will also work on Ground manners (is your horse running over you??) and some other back to basics issues including evaluating you and your horsemanship. We will also take a look at your tack for servicabiility and answer any questions we can.
Please call us if you have any questions.
See you on Sunday!
