Charlie, you're welcome back at Clearview anytime!

May 2017 Newsletter

As May draws to a close, we wish to honor Memorial Day and send our thoughts and prayers to the families who have lost loved ones in the armed forces. Thank you to the brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedom.

It’s also now officially summer! Keep on reading for the highlights from our clinics and events this month!

Special Feature: Happy Birthday to Marie!

First and foremost, we want to wish a happy birthday to Marie! This amazing lady keeps Clearview running like a well-oiled machine, and we love having her in Shelbyville. She celebrated with a lovely night out with friends.

Nothing beats a birthday with good friends!

Word in the Herd

Baby Geese

This past spring has been a great year for nesting birds, and we even had a family of geese make their home in our pond. How cute!

Check out the flotilla of little feathery puffballs! They're adorable!

Long Ear Perspective!

Have you ever tried to wrangle the reins in one hand and a camera in the other? It isn’t exactly the easiest task in the world, but it sure makes for some entertaining photos!

Sometimes you just need to take a break and see the world from a mule's perspective.

What happened to Don’s dog?!

Okay, this one is totally a trick question. Have you ever seen a corgi with a haircut like this? Don’s ever-loyal corgi was started to feel the summer heat, so now she’s sporting a much more comfortable (and cool!) summer cut. She’s become quite the permanent fixture around the farm and looks adorable!

We're betting Don's corgi feels much more comfortable now!

Arena Reports

Zen Dog Agility

We have had a blast hosting the Zen Dog Versatility Sports show series in our indoor arena. For those of you who haven’t made it out to watch or compete, here’s what an agility course looks like:

We're all set up for dog agility!

We’ve had some incredibly talented dogs and their owners competing, including this stunning border collie Peter. He finished his ADCH championship, which is the highest possible dog agility title, during this last show, and his owner and trainer Terri Schmitt could not be prouder. Congratulations to them both!

Congratulations to Peter and Terri!

Charlie Hutton Clinic

Charlie Hutton’s much-anticipated clinic was certainly the highlight of the month, and it felt just like old times when he lived and worked on the farm. Attendees had the opportunity to ask whatever questions they wanted, and Charlie tailored the clinic to the needs of his students.

Charlie's clinic had great attendance, and he was more than happy to give personalized attention alongside his old friend Corona.

We’re certainly going to miss him when he heads back home! Thanks to everyone who made the clinic such a great success!

Corona Extra Chex, son of Nu Chex to Cash, is standing at stud at Clearview, and you could not ask for a more personable stallion to sire your next foal. He’s extremely “honest,” in that you never have to worry about guessing his moods before a show or change classes at the last minute. And when he’s not cleaning house in the show ring or training, he has a gelding as a pasture buddy, enjoys his leisure time, and gets along great with other horses on trail rides. In fact, he’s so laid back that people who have never met him are often shocked to learn that he’s a stallion!

Diego, 5 year old gaited flashy TWH gelding – $2500 OBO

Diego is a flashy, sure-footed trail horse perfect for an advanced beginner!

Diego is a flashy, sure-footed trail horse perfect for an advanced beginner!

Diego is a 14.2 hand chestnut and white spotted TWH gelding, solid broke and fun trail horse for the advanced beginner rider! We have taken him trail riding numerous amounts of times. He will lead or follow and also rides out on his own just fine. His gait is as smooth as silk and will go all day long, anywhere you point he will go. He is sure-footed and will go through water, over logs, and over bridges. He is up to date on all shots, vaccinations, and Coggins and good for the farrier. The only reason for sale is we are reducing stock, so Diego is ready and eagerly looking for his next trail buddy! He does well at all the local fun shows due to his eye catching appearance and solid gait. Click this link for more photos and a video! http://www.equinenow.com/horse-ad-1059309
