Foaling is happening or right around the corner for many! Whether you are a seasoned pro, or new to the game, it is always good to brush up on some knowledge and ensure you are prepared! With the internet, there are many good sources to make prep lists, kits and good general information. None of this replaces a good relationship with your vet. Ensure you have one, and have their number handy in case you need assistance. Here are a few links to get you started on your info journey. Do not forget to post pictures on our facebook page, or email them in so we can show them off!

Saddle Up Magazine

Our club enters a monthly article in this great magazine. Remember to check it out (it is free online) If you have a story you would like to share about your long ears please email and we will get it published.

Casino Update

We have a date! May 11 & 12 in Edmonton! We will need your help in volunteering to make this happen. These funds will allow group activities/insurance fees, etc... to happen for the next two years. Expenses will be covered. Please email if you can help out.

Website Update

  • The website now has a "Links" section- feel free to suggest links that may be interesting to long ear fans
  • We have a section on the website called "Our Club In Action"- we would love to show off pictures/short blurbs of what you are doing with your long ears- whether it is at home or out and about. The facebook page gets these posts, and it would be great to get them on the website as well.
  • There is an "Upcoming Events" section- please let us know of any events that may be of interest to club members. Remember to check back for your own interest as well!

ISO: halter breaking donkey for our purebred beef operation and I was hoping you could point me in the right direction. My criteria is as follows: traditional regular sized Jesus Donkey. Prefer under 5 years old halter broke, need not have experience with halter breaking cattle but a willing disposition is a must. No preference as to Jack or Jenny. We are located in the Peace Country but could travel to find the right Donkey. We had a breaking donkey for over 20!years and he was exceptional. The new hired hand will have big shoes to fill. Contact Beverly- milneb@outlook.com
