Your webmaster has had some internet access issues of late, hopefully they are resolved, but the website has not been updated as frequently as it should have been. In the interim I received a note from Marlene about Mike and Shaunna. which relates to the November issue of Saddle Up. Hopefully you can still get a copy!

A response to an enquiry to the website brought these factoids from Marlene

Longears Days will always be happening the second weekend in Aug. In 2018 it will be Aug. 10 -12 again at Eagle Hill Equine, west of Olds, AB.

Our Tindell Clinics for 2018 are still in the planning stages, but They won't start until sometime in June, so check that out on the club site as the snow starts to melt.

Now when you pick up a 2018 calendar you have something to write on it!!
