Horse Health Day

by Kathy Zumbrunn

It doesn’t matter if it is sweltering hot, freezing cold or raining ... the Backcountry Horsemen are always willing to go wherever and whenever to let the public know just who we are and what we do.

On October 4th Lloyd Erlandson, Sam Flippins, Michael King, Jerrie and Bob Thomas, Dora Rocha, Debbie Inskeep, Isabel Souja and I (Kathy Z.) attended the Turlock Feed Horse Health Day. Dave Moser dropped off "Sparky the Iron Mule" and headed back home to irrigate. Jerrie Ann Thomas brought the Mid Valley hats, vests, shirts, etc and I set up a table with some photos, scrapbook, BCHC pamphlets and Trail Books. "Sparky" stood by the table and looked pretty spiffy, dressed in his packing gear!

Joe Rosa, owner of Turlock Feed, had a nice big barn set up with hay bale seating where Dr. Craig Brooks, Equine Hoof Specialist, Steve Brooks and Lloyd Erlandson gave their presentations. Since it was a rainy morning, there were only about 35 people, but those who came enjoyed the day.

We sold a hat and three trail books, but most importantly, we made contact with some people interested in BCHC. Thank you to all who came and represented our unit.
