Wow! You are a VERY busy lady! I'm impressed!! After I sent you a note, I noticed that you listed Fergus as home. When I was living in Powassan south of North Bay, I preferred motoring home by turning off Hwy 11 at Cooksville turn off, thru Fergus,winding thru back roads to Mitchell,Seaforth, Egmondville to Kippen. My children used to always bug me to stop for fresh cut fries in Fergus. They loved counting horses and Black Angus cattle in the fields aroun there! My return route was always thru S.tJacobs to visit several Mennonite farms where I purchased salami, butter, fresh plucked chickens and anything other delicious morsel they had just prepared! One of those families is currently carving a special cross for our family church in Brampton which we hope to dedicate before the end of the year. I do not visit the area nearly as much since both of my parents passed on. My brother still lives on the farm he purchased from my father in 1961 although his farms are now leased by his second son who also has his own near Clinton. Can't you tell that I get a little homesick for country? Nice to meet you!!
I notice from your profile that you are from Southwestern Ontario. Me too! I was raised on a farm 1 mile west of Kippen, a tiny blink-and-you'll-miss-it village on Hwy.4, 5 miles north of Hensall, 8 miles south of Clinton. I usually say 40 miles noth of London as the crow flies. Went to school in Hensall, High School in Exeter, unviversity at Club Western. My daughter also attended UWO. I used to ride my father's Clydesdale work horses bare back starting at the age of 4. His "spare" horse and his & my favourite was "Belle", a truly gentle soul!!! In later years I used to drvie for a local family in Fair competiton Dress Formal Carriage. I also used to do a bit of barrel racing in southwestern Ontario Fairs. My daughter went to Bethany Hills, an all girls school where she had the opportunity to learn dressage for 1 of her 2 years there. Lucky lady! Can you share with me where you are from and where you practice as a Nutrionist? Did you attend u at Guelph? Take care! Sharon
WAIT! Did I know you through a preivous barn maybe??? :)
Well... get back to me on that... my mom may have mentioned that I have a 13.3 hh pony named Kyomi I looove her sooo much! Horses are my life! I go up to the barn I keep my pony @ almost every day iof th week and weekends lol! I don't know what I'd do without horses!
- Rebecca & Kyomi!
well I worked as an executive assistant for Magna International last, then the lay offs started happening and in the mean time I worked on horsefarms, garden etc. I like that you are an equine nutritionist, always been interested in that. I used to endurance race and was always in search for the perfect product, call me obsessive:) I am looking for fulltime or parttime, maybe even on a contract basis, I get along well with people, speak three languages, english german and spanish and just want something close to home. Arthur is about 20 minutes away from where I live, in between Grand Valley and Orangeville. I sincerely wouldn't mind if you keep your eyes and ears open for me. Thanks a bundle sabine
Hi there Jen,
I am new to this web-site and am not very computer literate. I am not sure exactly how this all works but am always glad to make a new "horsey" friend. What is your horsey story? I am a forty something mother of a 14 year old "horse obsessed" young lady. I rekindled my own childhood horse obsession five years ago when my daughter caught the horse bug too. I had horses in England growing up (my father is still a working blacksmith there!!) but never became the horse woman that my daughter in a few short years is turning out to be!!!
