Horse Emergency First Aid

Here are the details on the training for August. As you may remember from the Calendar that was distributed back in January, our August Training is Horse First Aid. Dr. Gary Gordon, DVM, will be presenting this training, at his property at 4717 CA-41, Templeton. This is a few miles out of Atascadero out Highway 41. This is a valuable class for all of us--1st aid for our animals, and knowing when we really need the vet, are really important pieces of information. The class will start at 9 and end by or before 12 noon.

It would be awesomely lovely if you could RSVP! But you will be welcome, even if you don't.

July Extensive Table Top Evacuation Drill

Due to the holiday weekend, our July Training will be on Saturday,July 11th. We recently participated in the Park Hill fire, there were many lessons learned. We will be working on skills that will help us with the next real fire. We will be doing a more extensive table top evacuation drill than what we have ever seen. We are hoping to make our members more aware of what is happening and learn to think on their feet when it comes to responding to a situation. While it is great to volunteer when we have a fire, we all need to be aware of what we need to do in response to that fire. Everyone will have the opportunity to participate.

Uniforms are appropriate for this exercise. If you are a licensed HAM operator and have a radio, you will need to bring your radio to this exercise as well.

We hope to see as many members (and prospective members) at the exercise. The more people we have trained, the better our organization will become.

Hats and patches will be available for purchase for those that need them.

When:  July 11, 2015
Time: 9:00 am to about 12:00 pm
Where: 800 Quintana Rd, 2F, Morro Bay (back parking lot)
Wear your uniform

Herding 101 Training Exercise

Well, the votes are IN!!!  Training will be on Sunday, June 7th beginning at 9 AM.  The plan is to be done by about noon, but I personally plan to bring a sack lunch--well, ok, a thermal container lunch--in case we go long and I get hungry, which is likely (the my getting hungry part).  How long we play will depend on how many people show up.

This will be done on foot, by the way, since most of us would show up to a loose animal call on foot, not on horses.  This is being called "Herding 101," just the basics.  We will have the opportunity to learn a little about working with horses in a herd that we don't know; cattle; and llamas.

This is a hands on experience for everyone that wants to participate. We will have experts to help with the llamas as well this time. Please bring a lunch if you would like and perhaps some leather gloves and boots (to protect your feet)

Location:  84052 White Road, Parkfield, CA 93451
