Hi my name is Wendy Whitford and I am the reporter of this year Beatton Community 4-H Club. We have had a couple rides and done lots of pattern work and showmanship with the little kids. Our last couple rides have been canceled because of forest fires and rain, but we all hope our next ride will be soon.
This year’s Achievement Days have been on hold because the leaders are still trying to figure out where to hold it this year because the fall fair grounds are under inspection and won’t get the results until June 30, but the Achievement Days might be in Dawson.
For Horse 4-H we have to learn a pattern to show at Achievement Days, I’m on pattern and level 3. My pattern is 3 pages long and kinda hard. Our theme this year for Achievement Days for our barn theme is medieval times.
My horse Kitkat has to get her teeth done which means she has to go to the vet to get her teeth done. What the vet does is they look at their teeth and make sure they are all even, if they are not even they will take a special tool and shave them down so they are even because if the teeth are not even your horse might have troubles eating and gaining weight like Kitkat. Deworming is also a good thing to do in the spring because your horse might have worms like Kitkat did and it could infect them from gaining weight and it could also hurt their stomach.
