Chris graduation 045Chris Graduates from Air Force Boot Camp~

            Many of you have been following the long saga of Cheryl’s son Chris, in the Air Force. In case you didn’t know, here’s the short version. Chris left for Air Force Basic Training in late August. He arrived at Lackland Air Force Base and began his training. On the 5th day, he became ill and reported to medical. He was quickly transferred to a hospital where he spent the next 5 days. A viral infection of his heart was discovered to be the problem. Once he was stable enough, he was sent back to the base “Medical Hold” to recover. In Med Hold he was given many tests, medication and his activities were restricted.
            After almost 3 months, he was finally released back into basic training just after Thanksgiving. He graduated on January 17, 2013. Cheryl and Steve went to Texas to attend the festivities and celebrate his amazing accomplishment.
            At the conclusion of Basic Training, Chris was given a job in Knowledge Operations Management. To be trained for his new job, Chris will spend the next 10-12 weeks at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi.  He may be allowed to come home at the conclusion of this training before he has to report to his first (yet to be determined ) duty station. Congratulations Airman Chris Torrez!!!  It’s been a long hard road, but you are finally on your way!

If you have been approved to ride in a Level 2 group, here’s your chance! Cost for the month is only $180.00. Contact Cheryl before the end of January to reserve your space and horse. Ask to see the group lesson policy for more details.

            Group make-up lessons are offered on the last Sunday of the month at 11:00 am and/or 12:00 noon.  If you need to cancel your group lesson sometime during the month and are not able to make it up on another day, sign up for the “last day” make-up. The February make-up lesson will be held on Sunday,  February 24th.

            Riders should arrive 20 minutes early to begin grooming and be ready to ride at the start time of the lesson. Remember, you must sign up to ride in this lesson and all make-up lessons must be taken within 30 days of the cancelled lesson or be forfeited.  


lacey_smallLace Panties- February 27, 1993-January 2, 2013

            Lace recovered well from her surgery back in October. However, she developed a very persistent hoof abscess.  We very aggressively treated her with antibiotics but she is did not respond as hoped. When the damage to her hoof became too severe and recovery was no longer possible, she was humanely euthanized. Thank you Lace for being a part of our lives. You will be greatly missed!
