An Update from Ali- Silver Wind was pre-

This summer has

been one of the worst. We are suffering a serious drought that has caused a shortage of hay. For those people who have a hay source, the price is out of sight. AND TEXAS IS BURNING. Fires are popping up all over the State. Fires are popping up everywhere on a daily basis. I have been sent a number of emails on the Bastrop fire. It makes ones heart hurt to read reports of such devastation due to the raging fires all over the state. Let me assure you that the situ- ation is bad and it isn’t over yet. Until we get a good soaking rain … we are still in bad trouble. The first report came

in from ALISON COWDEN, President Central Texas Arabian Horse Club. “Matt and Tanya Burke

offered two seven horse trailers to Silver Wind Arabian to relocate their horses when the fire reached Cedar Creek on Monday. Russ Taylor made at least two separate evacuation hauls assisting LD Arabians to move mares and foals as well Pamela Fricke’s horses in Dripping Springs. Lori and Tara Ragland let us know they were on stand by for either stalls or haul- ing. Tarrin Warren, Anne Marie

Henson, Dan Woods, Nancy Branch, Carol Maginn, Mark Shroyer and Melanie Etter all contacted us with offers of stalls and hauling. And these were just the people I heard about. There were plenty more heros and ha- vens doing good works through out the horse community. We have learned

that Bastrop Farms by CTAHC founder Judith Connelly has completely burned to the ground with the miraculous exception of the cinder block stall barn. We are proud and honored by the many that have reached out and contacted Russ or me to ask what they can do to help. Ann Lang is in the

process of connecting with the Arabians Horseman’s Relief Fund for our Club Members who as a result of this catastrophe have suffered tragic losses of horses and property. And this from Terry

Carter member of SASHA in San Antonio. Susanne and Jerry

Mohme are SASHA members and photographers for the Alamo Arabian Horse Club’s October Fest Show. They lost every- thing, home and barn in a Bas- trop sub division. What do you

pared and ready to evacuate by the time the fire reached Cedar Creek on Monday. With the help of Matt and Tanya Burke they were able to relocate all their horses and essentials to their farm in Kyle, Texas. The only known casualties at this time are the horses at Judy Connelly’s. Carol Connelly Bandy got one load of horses out when the fire first erupted on Sunday. Judy escaped to a friend’s farm. Because they were so near the initial “ground zero” they had very little time to evacuate. When Carol returned for the remaining horses there was a block aid that prevented her from entering the area. She literally waited all night for re -admittance she was let back in the following morning and the horses were miraculously alive and mostly well. Carol attributes their survival to the construction which is shed row cinder block with pipe and steel roofing. All the houses and trees surrounding the barn were gone. Word spread fast

about Carol’s situation. I was plugged in on my Facebook trying to keep those in dire need connected with people who wanted to help. At this point in time, we’re trying to coordinate recovery efforts.” And this from RUSS


Dan and Louise De

Russeau were successfully evac- uated. Meredith Spice of Smith- ville report they and their horses are OK. It all happened so fast. People kept their trailers hooked up ready to roll. Now that fires are contained, those that had to evacuate will be able to start moving back in. Unfortunately for some, they have nothing to move back to.”


erything is going up in smoke. Texas is certainly on fire.

DONNA MURPHY Oh My God … Ev- I am

writing this to warn everyone to be on the alert. We had a second fire this week. The first at Canyon Park over at the Lake caused by campers over the holiday and now today at the ranch next door. Everyone look for smoke and report it. AND ON A LIGHT-

ER NOTE …. Terry Carter shares her news. San Antonio was

well represented at the World Championship Horse Show for the American Saddlebreds dur- ing the Kentucky State Fair Au- gust 21-28, 2011 in Louisville, Kentucky. Jo Anna Bean rode her “Stonecroft All That Jazz in the Adult Three Gaited Show Pleasure and in a class so large it needed to be split into three divisions. She qualified for the Championship. MICHAEL BEASOM took Diane Poole’s Coco Cool to the three gaited over 15.2 stake, took a ribbon and returned for the three gaited championship on Saturday. Sky Brave was entered by Tina and Jaime Pembroke, but was shown by SCOTT MANTTON

for the new owners. He looked great and ribboned very well in the three gaited Championship having remembered his lessons under Michael Beasom. Tina and Jaime are proud of their home bred horse. Lisa Mountain commented on the large filled classic this year. It was truly exciting. Other SASHA folks at- tended were Megan Beasom, Dr. Jack Poole, Brenda Rappaport and almost everyone else. Terry comments “It was great visiting with so many friends from all over Texas and other parts of the country who were in Louisville. For those wanting to see some of the show events, USEF is featur- ing a couple of the best classes from Friday and Saturday. Of course, mine was the five gaited championship.” tured/wshs2011 orwww.saddle- ON THE HOME


ALISON GOODIN and I visited the Alamo Dressage Associa- tion Dressage Show at the Rose Palace near Boerne. The classes were large and well attended. We agreed that the horses and riders were probably the best we have seen at this show. Visiting old friends and making new ones made our day special. At the Campbell Urban Stables, we vis- ited with friends Judy Campbell, Rick Urban, Rene Delisse, Dar- nella Delisse, Vicky Krebsback and Becky Snell. They were showing some gorgeous big handsome horses made to do the work.

HWY 46, we were reminded of the fires at Camp Bullis and areas that had fires. Fire Trucks were at work on a small grass fire and evidence of others reminded us that is isn’t over.
