How many o’s can you put in smooth
2017 has started off with plenty of exciting seminars and new programs offered at Prairie Oak Ranch. Due to some unexpected foot surgery I have not kept the site as current as possible. Hopefully I am back on track now.
The Roger Lewis seminar was very well attended and we saw some remarakble results in the horses that needed his attention.
We are very excited about this Wednesday January 25 2016 @630, when John Loree visits with his craft of rawhide braiding. I have always been fascinated with this skill and hope you will be as well. Limited space so it might be best to email or call to book a spot. Johns seminar was more than I imagined. So informative, hopefully he will return for a hands on weekely seminar of four weeks while you braid a small item under his guidance. Stay tuned for future info on this.
