***** Lillan Roquet, a former protégé of Linda Parelli, has now gone out on her own. Part of her business is the giving of clinics. She does a good job. So good in fact, that after attending two such clinics over in Nevada, Sandyjean decided to invite her to WNEC to give one here in May. AND…..SHE’S HERE RIGHT NOW!!!!! It is three(3)-days of knowledge and horse filled days that are informative and enjoyable. ***CHECK NEW PICTURES*** Although her first clinic has been filled, if there is enough interest locally, Lillan is willing to give a second one. 🙂 Let us know if you are interested. 916-687-8900, or firstname.lastname@example.org. *****

+++++ THE NEIGHBORHOOD WAS AWAKENED TO GUN SHOTS & SCREAMING! ……….Y I K E S!!!
WNEC hosted a “Mounted Shooting” Seminar this past summer, with Guest Trainer Mindy Mosteiro. Many folks trailered in for the weekend, and a great time was had by all. Even the local Police were in attendance (“city-raised-neighbors” apparently thought a Civil War had erupted & new to “Country-Living-habits”, they panicked and we had a visit by the gendarmes). Of course, blanks were being used, while horse training for “abrupt & loud sounds” was being utilized for better & safer trail riding. You may find “Dr W” occasionally parking his “running” tractor/lawn mower/utv at your horses stall gate or fence, to assist in this “foreign noise problem” with some horses. He’s even been seen feeding Fresh Green Mulberry Leaves to horses like “Billie”, “24Karat”, and others right from his tractor seat! +++++
+++++ PLEASE REMEMBER, TO A L W A Y S KEEP YOUR DOGS ON A LEASH & WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES!
Sorry, but one of the “Rules” of the ranch is: that “all visiting dogs must be kept on leash”. IF you choose to leave them in your vehicle, please make sure that they have air, water…..AND, DO NOT BARK CONTINUALLY!!!!! +++++
