SPRING MEETING:  APRIL 19-21st.  PRYOR, MT   

The Spring meeting is just around the corner!  You may be wondering why we are doing it in April instead of late May or early June.  First of all, we are doing it at my home near Pryor instead of at a fairgrounds type of venue.  If we do it later, my pasture will be too high and our activity will ruin the hay.  If we wait until after it is cut, we will be nearly into July and up against EXPO time.  The big benefit is that staying at our place is FREE where as fairground fees are really expensive.  The plan is to save money with this meeting so we can expand and improve our meeting at Twin Bridges.  The only charge for the Spring meeting is a voluntary contribution for the food.  Meals will be at our home and lodging is provided for those that need it.  There is plenty of room with hookups for your own trailer needs.

HAYING WITH HORSES AT PRYOR, MT.  - JUNE 14-16TH.
This is an annual event where we spend the better part of 3 days cutting the hay at the Jorden place in Pryor.  It’s only about 12 acres but we and the horses get a good workout.  Everyone is invited to come to any part of it.  You can bring your horses and see how they work with a mower or just come and drive one of our teams.  We always need mowers if you have one.  By the end of the 3 days you usually have become an expert in fixing mowers as there always seems to be plenty of opportunity to help someone fix a broken down mower.  Contact us for further info and understand that these dates could change due to weather at the last minute.  Ed Jordan - mtpetvet@mac.com or 406-254-1267
