News for the Inquiring Minds

We held our 4-H sponsored ski night last Friday and we made $464 for the program. It really is a great fundraising program and I thank Schweitzer for letting 4-H be part of it. Watch for our date next year and hopefully we will have another great year.

Last night we held a Horse Leaders workshop and Ty Cochran from Elenbaas Feed spoke to those attending about Equine Nutrition. It was very informative. No matter how much you think you know, there is always more to learn. Ty does a great job going over the digestive system and how it works. He really covers the good, the bad and the ugly and he covers it in a way the normal layman can understand. Ty has done other workshops for us and I will always be happy to have him in our county. I wish I had remembered to get a picture because when he speaks he is very animated.

He had Bill Armstrong with him, another Elenbaas Feed rep. Bill enjoys talking about he show beef and steers rather than the horses. Bill will be back on Thursday, March 18, in Sandpoint speaking at the Panhandle Bank for the Carter County Livestock seminar. Check it out if you can. It is bound to be informative.

And for all those horse people out there that feel they have to feed their horse buckets of grain, in the words of Ty Cochran, "Horses don't do grain!". To find out more check with Kim Dana at Carter Country feed or give me a call.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
