Upcoming meeting rescheduled

Due to a conflict with the Christmas Parade, the next Horse Judging meeting has been moved from Tuesday, Dec. 2 to Tuesday, Dec. 9. We will be participating in the Christmas Parade and meeting at the County Office at 4:30 to ride on the 4-H float.

On Tuesday, Dec. 9th at 6:30 we will meet at the Penn's house to discuss muscling and put all of what we have learn so far together. Please remember to bring your model horses (a maximum of 4 per person) with you so that we can 'judge' them.

The Penn's address is 950 CR 2303 (aka Tom Penn Lane). Please call Mike or Nikki for directions 903-393-1680. If you are new to the group, please give us a call and we can fill you in on what we the others have learned so far to get you caught up.

The Horse Judging and Livestock Judging projects are being held together. On Tuesday, November 11, we had our 3rd meeting at 6:30pm at the County Extension office. We reviewed breeding stock in cattle, swine and sheep. If you are interested in joining either or both groups, it is not too late to sign up. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 6:30 at the County Extension office in Rusk. We will be reviewing what we have learned so far with Horse Judging and going over muscling and travel. We will be evaluating model horses, so don't forget to bring yours (remember, no more than 4 model horses per 4-Her please).

If you are interested and have not been to one of our first meetings, please contact Mike or Nikki Penn at 903-393-1680. We would be glad to fill you in on what we have learned so far and provide you with all the project materials.

As a reminder, our Footbridge general meeting will be next Thursday, November 20 at 6:30 at the County office.
