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.

Foster Homes NEEDED

We are in urgent need of placement of the following horses:

Gridlock and Gambler – Gambler is a Paint, and Grid is a Standardbred gelding – located near La Crosse – urgent need

Dakota – 20 year old chestnut Standardbred gelding – near Tomah

Shaggy and Dyna – Dyna is a black QH mare, and she has been with Shaggy for years now so would like to place them together as a pair. Shaggy is an unregistered Paint mare – tall – Dyna can be ridden lightly and is great with kids.

Please please PM director Sue at 608-792-5126 if you can help us out!


News From Mini Happi Times Farm

Today we took Kay and Jimmy out on the trail. This was the first time we took Jimmy for 10 miles. He did great! He crossed a railroad tracks with only a bit of hesitation. He didn’t freak out when some Sandhill cranes flew up in front of him. He wasn’t keen on puddles, but he allowed his feet to get muddy. He went through town with no hesitation. Even with all the rain we have had, the bugs weren’t bad on the trail.

When we got back to the farm, we let them graze while we put away their regular harness, and got out the pairs harness. We hitched them together, and Ray drove them. Jimmy seemed a bit confused at first, but then settled down, and worked with Kay. They have the same stride length, so they moved well together. Except Jimmy would pace and Kay would trot, so it wasn’t as smooth as it could be. 🙂
