BSDC May 2007 Newsletter

The safety clinic held at Hancock County Fairgrounds in Findlay, Ohio, went great and to a special thank you to Hollie form Diamond M clinic in Kenton, Ohio, she discussed horse health, to John Hunter who demonstrated vehicle maintenance.  Joe Bell and Gary Gillfillian demonstrated harness and hands on driving, Gene Pore showed us horseshoeing, and to Mark Newman demonstrated the fifth wheel demonstration.  To all the ladies who made all the cookies and keeping the coffee hot, thank you.  Everyone did a fantastic job explaining everything.  After the clinic President, Roger Higgins Jr. held a short business meeting.

It's also that time to start thinking about going to horse country for a weekend of driving at the Kentucky Horse Park.  This year's theme is 101 Coach Dogs so if anyone has anything Dalmatian bring it we will need your help, we will be having a club tailgate party at 6 p.m..  If you are planning to attend the Kentucky Horse Park please have your registration in by May 15 and your horse must have a record on hand of the Coggins test.  If you fail to do this you will be asked to leave the park.

Sandy Young and Peggy Graham are still in need of photos for the club scrapbook.

We received a special donation from Joanne Shapler, a beautiful afghan.  We will be selling the tickets at each club event and we will draw a winner at the club's annual banquet.  You won't have to be present to win.
