Blog - Case of the Month
Proving again that the truth is stranger than fiction...
I’ll be picking out a specific case out of the hundreds I’ve worked on in the past years and give you a brief rendition of the facts and outcome. And, I may cover pertinent equine related topics.

Taking advantage of situations that have occurred to others may lead you to say things to yourself like, “Boy I’m glad that didn’t happen to me!” Anyway, for sheer entertainment value, you’ll like them.

After reading the Blog, please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions or comments. Although I will not be taking comments on this blog, your feedback is welcomed. Archived Blogs available at this link.

NAES BLOG - June 2017...

Those of us in the horse business, are often un-thinking about the responsibilities created by our one thousand pound friends. I remark frequently about the very scary sounds created by “thundering hoof beats” at 2:00 AM and the costs often created by our horses as they tear up the adjacent golf greens next door.

Or that pesky gate which you’ve been meaning to repair, when the sheriff’s deputy wakes you up after two of your horses are dead on the road and a young driver coming home is found dead in his Honda Civic, after he ran into one of your dead horses.

Oh my God, life can get bad in a very big hurry. I hope I have your attention now because a series of “what ifs” must follow. Horsemen are generally very conscientious but sometimes, “Can’t I please stop for a moment being so bloody mindful about the minutia in my life…?” The answer, of course, is a definite “NO!”

Now is when the “what ifs” must start so no matter the size and complexity of your horse operation, it will always be the same as you count off what makes and keeps your business a success.

Quite obviously first must be “safety,” since keeping your clients and the horses safe and healthy has to be number 1. Then just go right down the line of important areas and specific items which make your business a success. I’m a firm believer in putting all those goals on the refrigerator door. That way every day your goals are put squarely in front of you.

I can guarantee you that success will be yours if only you keep visual track of your goals; just try it.
