STABLEMATES 4-h CLUB
You should have been there! At the February meeting of The Stablemates 4-H Club that is.The members had been asked to come prepared to present a short talk on an equine subject of their choice. They out-did themselves. The young man among all of the young ladies had created a stunning poster displaying the different types of bedding and indicated the pros and cons of each type. One of the young ladies brought a grooming kit and explained how each tool was to be used and another taught how to actually groom a horse. (Ollie was not particularly impressed with the horse model...he could not decide if he should hide under Darcy's arm or growl). Show clothes are an important part of the horse show world and one young lady brought a Hunter and a Dressage outfit and explained the differences. Other great talks were on the correct way to clean a horse's feet, the parts of a bridle, how to hang a bridle in a figure-8 and leptospirosis in horses. Another great poster displayed and discussed suspensory injuries. Kudos to each and everyone!
