Hello Friends,
Well fall is just around the corner and it will soon be time to break out the winter jackets. Its been an up and down year here at the spread but as anyone into horses knows that’s par for the course.. As you know my new book Equiknowlogy 101… came out the 1st of July and the review from all books was very positive. But due to the fact that I do not garner the national attention that some writers enjoy, sales have been slow up to now. The Western Horseman declined to review my book siting some nonsensical excuse but more likely because they like most everyone in the horse business are more interested in what sells or is most popular at the time, not what folks need to hear or might like to read. Of course that’s just my opinion though and like the rest of the world everyone has one.. That aside, I am hopeful that some folks might like to pick it up and if it helps someone stay out of trouble and enjoy the equine experience a little bit more and a little safer, then it was worth the time to write it! Two weeks ago I lost my round pen, the roof on the house, some of my fences and a few tress to the tornado that rolled through our area. So I’ve been busy trying to get things back in order from that. But no one was hurt, the critters survived and some of my neighbors fared far worse so I consider myself lucky. Like I said its not always a piece of cake in the horse world or in life so buck up enjoy the good things you have and forget about the rest! If anyone is interested Google books has a look inside feature of Equiknowlogy 101… so you can take a look at some of the chapters there. Amazon will hopefully have it up as well shortly.  If you are on face book you can go to my horseman’s services page an watch a short clip of my colt starting video too. One high point last month is that my round pen video seems to have had a surge of interest.. I’m not sure why but if any of my friends out there have seen or know-of any reason why please drop me line. I always like to hear about how folks found it, buy it, like it or not, so I can improve on the next bit of drivel I put out to hopefully give you a little knowledge and enjoyment! For now that’s about the all the news from our neck of the woods. Drop in and say howdy once in while and let me know I’m not alone out here in web world!
Regards, Smokie
