You just never know sometimes....

A very good friend of ours, Mike Woodard, was recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.


LARA & NFAHC are hosting a benefit trail ride for Mike Woodard. The ride will be April 16th at Jennings Forest. Cost is $15 per rider and includes lunch. The host clubs are donating food and Jennings Forest has waived the $2 use fee to help our cause. Please RSVP to khladyfish@comcast.net if you would like to participate. You don't have to pay in advance, this is just to plan for food purchases. If you don't want to ride, but would like to volunteer to help on the day of the ride, please contact Jim Will or Lisa. There will also be a silent auction, so if you have any gently used items that you would like to donate for the auction, please bring them with you so we can display them for bidding.

Another way you can help is to donate blood for Mike. He has an account with the FL-GA Blood Alliance. You can log on to http://www.igiveblood.com/ and donate in his name (acct #0190.) Thank you for helping out!


This was Erik's first time EVER donating blood

He was trying to be brave.  Seeing his own blood makes Erik faint.

He did it though.

For me, it was nothing new.

Fliers for the Obstacle Challenge and the Trail ride can be found HERE.  Please consider posting them at you local feed and tack stores.  Mike and Traci are good people, and they apreciate all the support and prayers.


Welcome home dad!

Poca Update

I received a note from Crystal this morning.  I am so excited.  I had to share.


Poca is doing wonderful! I have been asking her to trot and canter today. She went straight from a walk to a canter the first time I asked her. You really did a great job with her! She is a very smart horse, too. We love her soooo much!!

Take Care!

First ride on Ranger

Saturday, Chele, Pinky, Cory and I met at Guana Preserve for a lovely afternoon ride.  It was the my first ride on Ranger since he moved to my house.  I was very pleased with him.

He seemed ready to go as I hooked up the trailer
I lunged him for a minute or two to make sure he was cool with the drinks hanging.
Off we go
Rocky was happy to be out and about again.
He was not happy being left behind while I was at Cracker.
Pinky and Doc
Doing well
At our snack break
Chele & Dawn

Ranger loves Cory
