Terri Mason, the innovative editor of CANADIAN COWBOY COUNTRY, has an uncannily accurate feel for pertinent articles and features - her recent advocacy for the Saskatchewan pasturelands and the unique heritage of the community grazing lands is one example, and she does it time after time after time. Her love of western history is legendary and far-reaching; she just knows everyone who might know something! Terri commissioned these pieces written over several years; they appear here in their full magazine glory and great colour- enjoy!
The a7Ranche near Nanton's grazing and riparian system listens to the land and water systems.
Writing about Barn Fires introduced me to Jennifer Woods, a disaster specialist and consultant of the first order.
Super Shooter highlighted three extraordinary photographers and their methods.
Kids to me highlighted huge and growing differences of young people growing up on the land, with the land compared to the growing disconnect of youngsters in urban and suburban environments.
The Perrenoude Ranch I drive past every morning - it fascinates me still, and now conservation and restoration projects are happening too.
The Porters introduced me to magic and the very definite 'feel' of this corner of Alberta - their very real love of history is part of their DNA; they're, simply, just part of remembering grasshopper invasions, finding tomahawks, working with bison.
Shelterbelts - and the addictive influences of Pam and Ken Wright championing native trees and shrubs opened up another whole world for me - and, I hope, for a ton of readers too.
Frances Riviere is an incorrigible storyteller - addictive - I could spend days, weeks! listening........"

In 2015 HORSE CANADA magazine have a weekly online blog of the 'Adventures of the Wildie Colt', and his trotting into Combined Driving. Click here, with a RSS feed even, and you can follow our adventures - and learning curves as we both learn the lingo, the steps and a few thoughts besides about horse-language dynamics - ! Here's your link at:

So, we're up for a new challenge, that of driving, learning to (we're pretty OK, as are most of the home herd, with long lines and getting a bit competent there, touch wood!), aiming Driving Trials and Combined Driving further along. Come join our trot out! And, perhaps, too, enjoy the horse-language and horse-think aspects too.
Comments, please, people, comments, feedback, bio-dynamics feedback, your thoughts, share out, everything - ! - and, oh yes, if you're sitting inside nice and warm, well enjoy that too as I trot around with three to five layers on in crisp fresh sunshine - !


Pam Asheton's up and running with a new weekly newspaper column, LISTENING TO THE LAND, in the COCHRANE TIMES ( - fastest if you go for the 'E-version' and thumb through the pages for that week's fix! ... here are a couple of the opening sallies on PDF format, a very popular one right now - and very pertinent health wise on Lyme's Disease and ticks - is included).

'Your Event behind-the-Scenes (for newsletters, press releases, sponsors and in-house' calendars, posters, mugs even!) - these photos were taken at the recent JONATHAN FIELD AND FRIENDS weekend covering the event for HORSE-CANADA online, and are an example of who, what, where - and just how hard every single volunteer worked too).'
