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 - September 2018

August 8th, 2018 was a biggie as far as my wife, Kathy, and I are concerned because it was our 48th wedding anniversary. 48 years of marriage is an accomplishment in itself but being in the horse business is spectacular.

I’m sure we all know marriages in couples who are both horse people devolve; it happens all the time. Seeing horse folks staying married a long time is tough, but I can tell you that having an understanding spouse can sure help. As we all know, just trying to make a horse related business successful is tough enough, but having a supportive spouse really helps so much.

My wife and I have always felt the necessity of working with youngsters as it relates to horsemanship plus the other things that go to makeup a good citizen. You see, it’s not just learning to ride one of God’s creatures, but also learning to compete not only towards winning, but just how to compete fairly with an eye to flawless sportsmanship as well.

While there are some who feel that being competitive is “somehow a sin.” We’ve always felt that the focus should always be on riding well and learning to compete while always having the horse’s condition as the goal. Anyway, I can say that throughout the almost 50 years we’ve been competing, doing things the right way has always been at the forefront of our mission.

By the way, Kathy and I have stayed married for so many years and have always been able to keep the horses, kids and the horsemanship sport as “number one” in our sights. At the same time, we’ve been happy as well.

Tip of the month

September 2018
Years ago, the brands inspector was a large part of the business. However, those days are long gone, but not the responsibility of making sure your horse is legally yours.

So the words of wisdom is to be really crazy at making sure all the paperwork is squared away, and you really do own your special friend.
