The club met at Gladstone on Nov. 14. We worked on our project books and finished the evening playing horse computer games. This was a lot of fun and we learned some interesting things.

On Dec. 14 we went to Murray and Linda McCaskill’s place, Dead Lake Ranch, and toured their PMU barn. They were great hosts and gave each of us a packet to take home. Then we went to Ken and Nancy Lewis’s for Chinese food and games.

Our January meeting was held at Gladstone on the 16th. After the meeting we went to Gladstone Vet Clinic and Dr. Tanya Anderson showed us different grains and hays and things she uses to work on horses. We also got to see X-rays of horses’ feet that showed the damage that’s done when a horse founders.
