Whether it be an event for you to gain experience, participate in a local fundraiser, or a chance to ride with the best in the West, you will be certain to enjoy a world-class facility and some magnificent riding. Bring the family and stay awhile. Sharon Jantzen brings the news of three Hunter/Jumper shows at the Paso Robles Horse Park.
Recently 11 horses were reported to be in such deplorable conditions here in SLO County that someone had to step in. What do we as horse people need to know about SLO County Animal Services and the care they give our equine friends when someone needs to step in? Sharon Jantzen interviews Dr. Anderson at SLO County Animal Services to help us know when to report a situation and what will happen to the horses.
How often though are first impressions actually wrong? When I look back at my interactions with humans I can say usually my first impression has been mostly correct. I can also honestly say each pet I’ve had the pleasure to own drew me at first sight. However, here’s a story from Sharon Jantzen’s Carriage driving days where her first impression was drastically wrong, and it made a profound impression.
I came across a Facebook thread which discussed the options available for large animal disposal in SLO County. The consensus was unanimous: We have limited large animal disposal options. I wondered if this was actually the case, or if our community simply doesn’t know about all of the options available to them. I turned to my industry expert contact, Christine Johnson, General Manager of Eden Memorial Pet Care, for some answers. Sharon Jantzen shares Christine’s answers to large animal disposal options in SLO County.
