Clinics, Conferences and Vacations

Ramsey and I have got a big adventure coming up next week.  We are going to the first ever donkey hoof clinic with Pete Ramey, who is one of the foremost experts on trimming feet.  He is finally doing a donkey clinic and we're going.

It's a bit ironic as I was really desperate for something like this a couple of years ago when I was trying to find help with Ramsey's foot.  I feel like I have mostly figured it now and that desperation is gone, but I still want to go.  I will be very interested in hearing what Pete Ramey has to say.

Following the hoof clinic is a two day donkey conference and I am also staying for that.  Who else is going to be there?  I am looking forward to meeting several "donkey people" who I have only corresponded with via email.  I believe there are still openings available if anyone would like to sign up.

A reclusive introvert goes to a conference - should be interesting.

And......starting tomorrow, I am on a desperately needed vacation from work.  It won't be anywhere near long enough.  Blog posting is probably going to be very sporadic or nonexistent for the week as I intend to stay far away from the computer as well.  Hopefully, I'll find the time to catch up on some of the things I've been meaning to write about and the conference as well.  See ya there.

  3. Sounds like a great clinic. Sorry but I have been away from my computer for quite a while and am now just trying to catch up a bit.

  4. Ooh, I am so jealous. I saw that clinic advertised and I was so excited, but then I saw it's all the way across the country. I went to one of Pete's clinics years ago and it was absolutely amazing. His passion for his work is contagious. I wish I could be there with you.

  5. Kris! I'm so excited for you! There's nothiing more interesting than talking ' shop' with a bunch of people who share your passion. It makes socializing for a recluse much easier! :) Have a blast!
