I came across your page , and wanted to introduce myself and my hobby.
My name is Gary Glaser and I am the mounted commander of the 9th New York Cavalry and live in Binbrook, not to far from you . I belong to a group of equine enthusiasts that enjoy living historians and American civil war, we are the 9th NY cavalry.
The Ninth New York Cavalry has been reactivated by ain the portrayal of the life of the Federal Horse Soldier. As a group, we participate in living history encampments, re-enactments, and giving informative lectures throughout the year in both Ontario and the U.S.
There is one publisher - Rozhanitsa in Kampen - very interested in publishing the translation, but I don’t know what their plans are yet. They have very recently published the new book by Klaus Ferdinand Hempfling, and they are working on the translation of Kathy Pike's new book Hope from the heart of horses, so maybe they want to wait a couple of months. I expect to hear from them this week. Tell your girlfriend in Den Bosch to check out the website of Rozhanitsa regularly: http://www.rozhanitsa.nl/page/voorpagina.
Thanks! In Dutch BTW is a very common, well-known abbreviation, it stands for "Belasting Toegevoegde Waarde," which roughly means Augmented Value Tax.
Is it usual to end an email with Cheerz!? I got emails from Chris Irwin that also ended with Cheerz, but I thought it meant he was drinking (alcohol) and wished I did the same…
Thanks for the reponse Dorothy.
Yes I know Ennismoor as I had contacted them during my research for buying my dog. Nice photos of Sass and Abbey. Elegent looking girls. I know about the herding instinct of some of the herding dogs as I have an 11 year old sheltie named Otto ( I used to jog with him) who used to herd me and my kids at the cottage when they were all younger. Otto grew out of the herding stuff as I used to correct him. I'm still debating on which colour to choose as Irene, the breeder, is breeding two more litters later this spring which will most likely result in Merles and Mahogony sables. I like them all so I will most likely go for the best tempered puppy. I'm looking forward to it though I hope I'll be all right with such a big dog as I have always had smaller breeds but I love this breed. I knew of Cornerstone from years back when I was considering a collie but was reminded about them again the second time, last year, by seeing a beautiful Collie I saw down at that big Toronto dog fest thing they have downtown every year where the streets are closed off ...I forget the name of the event...anyways this lady had a most beautiful Blue collie named Neut and she told me that Irene Snow was the breeder so I contacted her again, but this time I gave her a deposit. I expect to get 2nd choice after Irene sometime later this summer! I see that you have bred Sass. Do you plan more Dorothy?
Thanks for your response Dorothy.
Talk to you later.
Hi Dorothy: my name is Stephen Sharf. I am Barbara Foglers cousin and we were just out for dinner together and Barb had mentioned your collies. I have a sheltie who is 11 and I have just ordered a collie that will be delivered later this summer from a litter at Cornerstone collies (Irene Snow) Do you know of them and how do you like your collies? Let me know.
I agree! Horses give back to us in so many ways. As you said, they teach us to rise to the challenge and move forward. I couldn't live without them in my daily life for that very reason. I also involved my daughter from day one in order to establish wonderful life lessons, not just for "riding" :)
Thanks Dorothy, I already learned from the CADORA Barnmice group that the Phoenix Tipperary Event Vest is one of the safest and most comfortable protection vests and I have only been a member for 5 minutes!
On Mar 20, I went to the www.CanAmEquine.ca show in London, Ontario --- saw Cindy Ishoy ride, Susan Harris and the Visible Horse, and Lauren Bode www.AnimalTalk.ca communicate with three of the horses from the Canadian Cowgirls. Looking forward to attending some CADORA events this summer. Benjamin
