Kay and Scarlet

News from Mini Happi Times Farm

Today we worked with Kay and Scarlet. There wasn’t much snow, but there was enough for the sleigh. The snow had a firm texture to it, but it wasn’t slippery. It was about 22 degrees.

I rode Kay while Ray drove Scarlet. When we started, I was sitting on Kay while Ray hitched Scarlet, unsnapped the lead rope, and got in the cart. Kay did some grunting as if she was getting bored with waiting for Kay. There is no love lost between these two, so we try to keep them apart. Both horses cooperated fairly well. Scarlet did some trotting and would let Ray direct her past the garage. This is progress for her, as she used to throw a bit of a fit if you tried taking her past the garage. Pongo supervised at first, but then we put her in the house, as she gets a bit excited if a horse is trotting.

2019 Illinois Horse Fair

We are hoping to attend in March 2019 – would love to receive sponsorship dollars to make this possible!


​Hi Everyone!

I hope you all have had a wonderful year since IHF2018!

We are busy planning Illinois Horse Fair 2019. We will be using the same arenas as we did this year. The coliseum is finally getting the love that it needs but is not going to be available yet.

We look forward to having you all join us again!! It is a great opportunity to show your breed and/or discipline to many spectators who come to Horse Fair.

If you know of any other breed or discipline groups that might like to join us, please feel free to forward this packet on to them.

Sally Atterberry
IHF2019 Event Secretary
