Verdant Valley Eye Opener
On September 4 Elson and Pat McDougald and Austin Veno travelled to Patricia to meet Michelle Peake at a Log Pulling Competition. Elson and Austin both drove the Clydesdale colts, Chrome and Levi and Michelle drove the Canadians, Monty and Max. All did well. On September 11 Elson, Pat and Austin along with Lyle and Diana Rowe travelled to the Bar U Ranch where Elson and Austin participated in the Horse Competition. The Clydesdales, Chrome and Levi, were a little frisky for Elson in the cold and rain but Austin did well with the Canadians, Monty and Max. When we think how important heavy work horses were to the development of this part of the country it is nice to see people who are raising and showing these beautiful animals. It is an interesting hobby, Elson.
Happy birthday this week to Percy Poland and Chase Drydale on September 15, Leslie Leonhardt and Belinda Wilson on September 18, Ryan Poland on September 19 and Hannah Mepham on September 21.
Best wishes on your wedding anniversary to Brad and Koren McDougald on September 21.
