A Weekend of Fun at the Hartley Cow Clinic

Did you hear some mooing at the Fairgrounds this past weekend (Dec 12-14)? The Lake Earl Grange sponsored a fun filled Cow Clinic with Robert and Stacy Jo Hartley that was hosted by Sam Frick. We all came away with good lessons on working cows and better control of our horses while we are moving those cows down the rail. What a great group of participants…from kids to much older kids!  The Hartley’s gave us some entertaining moments…such as Stacy Jo being a cow for Robert to give us a visual on reading a cow’s movement. Here are a couple photos of our instruction:

We always look forward to Sam’s great meals, too! She really knows how to keep us well fed so we can keep our energy up and her vegetables were perfectly cooked! Yes…home cooked food!
