October 2010

Fellow Fox Trotters

Today is a great day as we were awakened by much needed rain. Hay is really short in our area and feed prices are all going out of sight due to high corn prices. This rain should help get some winter pastures started and certainly make everyone feel better.

Jimmy and Buddy tell us the Bastrop arena is coming on good and everyone is really excited about it.

Our club was certainly well represented in Ava at the Fall Celebration and we can be really proud of them all. Their hard work and determination certainly paid off with fantastic results!

Our club winners were Heather Harrison, Daniel Smith, Tammy Dousay, Lynn Dousay, and Amber Lawson. Heather Harrison led the way and won THE WORLD GRAND CHAMPION in class #134 out of state competition. Daniel Smith followed close behind in 4th place with Lynn Dousay in 5th, Amber Lawson 8th, and Tammy Dousay in 10th. This is outstanding with our club taking five places out of ten in World Grand Championship in class #132 AM O&T 3 yr old with Lynn Dousay in 4th place. Amber Lawson won 1st place in Amateur Versatility Highpoint Pleasure in the National Versatility Circuit. All our club contestants are to be congratulated for jobs well done. Complete class results can be found on the MFTHBA web site under 2010 Fall Show and Celebration results.
