2021 Past President Christmas Message:
This year has certainly been another difficult and challenging year in BC. COVID continues to be a prominent factor in our lives. Global warming has shown us what to expect in future years with the incredible heat wave we had followed by devastating forest fires and recently the unbelievable floods in the Fraser valley. These events have touched us all and it is incredible to see how the communities have come together to help each other during these unusual times.
It has also a very difficult year for the Equine industry with limited showing possibilities, cancelled events and long traditions being put aside once again. The Quarter Horse Industry in BC has suffered hardships as well yet it has been extremely gratifying to see the different zones work hard to produce some interesting and fun events to encourage one and all to participate with their equine partners. This is made more difficult the past couple of years due to the limited volunteers and helpers and very discouraging with the small numbers attending any of the Zone and BCQHA meetings.
We welcome our new board of directors after our AGM held on November 20th in Fort Langley.
President Tamara M Jameson
Vice President Hailey Zilkowsky
Treasurer Pia Petersen
Secretary Marilyn Griffin
Director Leigh Couchman
The new board is eager and already working towards another great year for 2022.
We are currently working on details for next years horse show in collaboration with BCPHC and we are always looking for more input on what members would like to see!
Next week we are holding our annual online Christmas auction December 3-5th through the lmqha Facebook page. We have an amazing list of items we cannot wait to auction off!
Thank you again to all the club sponsors as we cannot continue doing what we do without you.
Horses drink an average of 10-12 gallons of water per day. In some areas of the country, winter means below-freezing temperatures around the clock. This means that water available for horses to drink can often freeze solid.
If horses don’t have access to fresh water, they can quickly succumb to health hazards including dehydration and colic. Keep your horse hydrated despite the cold with these expert tips.
