I was just curious to hear which shows any of you will be competing in in the next couple of months.

I don't like to show anymore, but I still like to attend shows as an auditor - so should I keep my eyes and ears open for any of you? =)

My barn, Hollandale, is actually starting up a schooling show series for beginners - the first one is this Sunday. I think our barn is a little small for a show, so we'll see how it goes!

Angel Ridge Animal Rescue will collect veterinary supplies at its annual Barktoberfest on Saturday, October 1 in South Park.

The supplies, which will benefit animals who were injured or otherwise affected by Hurricane Katrina, will be sent with animal rescue teams traveling to areas on the Gulf Coast.

Needed items include bottled water, garbage bags, bleach, insect repellent, wire cages, paper towels, dog and cat medications, cat litter, gas cards, and collars and leashes.

A portion of the proceeds from the event, to take place at South Park's Community House on Maple Springs Drive, also will benefit veterinary care.

Angel Ridge is a Washington County no-kill shelter and sanctuary for unwanted, abused, handicapped and aged animals. For more information, call 724-229-7053 or visit http://members.petfinder.org/~PA231/.


Saturday Lecture Series at Carnegie Museum of Natural History
American Bog Bodies: The Archaeology of Ancient Wetland Cemeteries in Florida

Dr. Lee Newsom, Department of Anthropology, Pennsylvania State University
October 1, 1 p.m.
Lecture Hall
FREE with museum admission

Recent discoveries of ancient human remains in “pond cemeteries” from Florida reveal fascinating mortuary practices dating to the Archaic, 7,000-8,000 years ago. The exceptional preservation of organic matter yields important details such as age, gender, disease, injuries, clothing, personal effects, last meals, ethno botanical knowledge, and season of death.

so this isnt entirely related to horses, howeverrr!

i am getting mouth surgary on the 18th of june. [4 wisdom teeth out and 3 babies] and i was told i can't do any real activity for about a week. WELL...one week and ONE day after that surgary i have a horse show. i don;t HAVE to be in it, however i would love to because it'd be the first one of the summer [im already missing my first 2 for 4H cuz of the whole thing]...and I'm gunna get somebody to ride spice and ill give a little lesson about 3 times the week im out. i was wondering if anybody here has ever had their wisdom teeth out, and how long you had to wait utnil you could ride again.. because if im just ok, i could do just on the flat. i know everyone is different, however, an approximation would be really helpful! its just i want him to start getting into showing and stop being an asshole during classes, and id rather start sooner than later!

so anybody that knows anything, please comment!

I was in McMurray yesterday to investigate DeLuca's Canine Country Club (not my area--that was about a 50 minute drive) and had the pleasure of passing Carousel Equestrian Facilities. I didn't know what it was at first, nor if it was a stable or a really nice house fashioned to look like a barn, so I drove up and snooped around for a little bit. Anyhow, the place is amazing. Do any of you board there/know of someone that boards there? I would like some information, if possible. I know that it's relatively new, so I don't think they have a Web site up yet.
