Is anybody going to the AQHA horse show in Denison Iowa this weekend?

I am thinking about heading down to this show if my schedule allows me to on Saturday. I would like to check out some opportunities that are available to show my quarter horse mare and her new little filly eventually. The show ring is all new to me so I am rather interested in checking out our options...

I might be headed to the show in Brookings. My daughter's judging coach is showing, so they might go and watch, maybe do a little judging.

We have friends that may be coming down for a 4-H fun show, so we may end up going to that instead.

If you do go to the show in Denison, let us know what you think about it all.

I made it to the Denison show on Saturday. I really did not get to see many classes since my daughter had to be at work at 3. What I did see has sparked my daughter and my interest for sure and I plan on attending a few more shows to see where I could get started.

There is another show in Dension on July 10 - 12 so if things work out I will be there for one of the days....

Does anybody know of any shows that are coming up in the near future???

If you are looking for a variety of shows, check out different county fairs. I know ours will have an open show after the 4-H'ers get done competing with their livestock events. My daughter started out doing the showmanship at halter, and other non-riding events at both the 4-H and open show to gain some experience.

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!
    •   And we've never won the war on homicide yet either
    • Have heard that's a fun arena to catch a game at.
    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
    • Just found some at Maynard's Tackle.
    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
