what's a farm without a horse... or two... or eight?

By Jessica Bennett

Hi, and welcome to our Show Bulletin Bord. This is where we will post our families placings in all of the Local Open Shows, 4-H Shows and The Indiana State Fair.

In our family we mostly show our horses but showing some of our other animals is also an option. Some times we have four or even eight horses that we take to one show. Depending on the show and the classes, all three of us J's may be in the same class or just one person in one class at a time.

By the way, only Me-J1 and J2&3 are old enough to show in our local 4-H program (which is in Delaware County) J4 has not yet hit the first grade mark to show in mini 4-H, even if she can ride our thirty-some year old pony bare-back.

All of the shows that we go to are held in the summer from June until around August. In September and October we like to go trail riding at Westwood Park but we only go if it hasn't rained in the past three days. Otherwise the trail is a muddy slur and it's hard for the horses to get proper footing. The rest of the time we are either training or just having fun with our horses.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Jeremiah Sadie These placings are MIA because Jeremiah wouldn't let me have them.  
      Hank They must be state secrets. He did pretty well. He even beat me in one class. He's practicing being humble I suppose. Though that's really not like him.  
    Jamie Dolly Jamie's placings are also MIA. Dolly was once again a good ol' pony. Didn't put up with any guff. Did her job with dignity, and patiently waited for all the other horses to show off.

No NAIS Info

New information as of Feb. 2009. Even with the TRILLIONS of dollars going towards the socialization of our country, our government is determined to make it worse by implementing the NAIS program. This is another nail in the coffin being prepared for an economy that is being killed by the virus of Socialism. Click the image above to learn more.

Homeschooling is not a pedagogy, it's a lifestyle.
The education of our children is as much a part of a parent's responsibility as food, clothing and shelter. Yet we force children to put in more "school time" than family time. No wonder there is a disconnect between children socialized in Public Schools, and children reared by their parents. Learn more about homeschooling at and on the IndianaHomeschoolers E-list Community. IHEN as been Helping Hoosiers Homeschool since the turn of the century.™
