    Hello! You guessed it! It’s that time of year again!! On October 7, 2013, we, the Coal Lake Light Horse 4-H members, had our first 4-H meeting of the year. We elected people into the following positions. President: Caelin Foulston, Vice President: Alison Erskine, Secretary: Mallory Rusk, Treasurer: Lois Schultz, Club Reporters: Cassidy Laskosky and Yolanda Kakoschke (me). Our Project reporters are: Jeanine Tatlow, Julia Milligan, and Shelby Boeve. Our District Representatives are: Mariah Corbiere and Sadie Borgfjord, Historian: Sarah Nelson and Parliamentarian: Louise Erskine.

    On the 20th of October we had our 4-H Kick Off day. It was a blast. We played an introduction game. We were all divided into groups and we introduced each other. After that we all had to make a horse out of limited materials. We also had Horse Olympics where two people did a course while the “horse” was blindfolded. It was hilarious!! There also was apple dunking, pumpkin carving and a tack swamp. It was an awesome event. A big thank-you to the Schultz’s for hosting the event. 

    And on the 27th we had our first 4-H ride for this year. In my group we walked, trotted, and cantered. We also worked on going from a large circle to smaller and from a small circle to a larger circle. This taught the horses not to drop their inside shoulder. A fun ride. This is Yolanda Kakoschke signing off.

Falun East Beef 4-H Club

    The 4-H season is off to a great start for the Falun East Beef 4-H Club. On Saturday, October 19th, at the Wetaskiwin Ag Grounds, the Falun East Beef Club got together with the Rosebrier Beef Club for their annual weigh-in. People woke up bright and early in the morning to come and weigh their beef projects. The average weight was 700 lbs. 

    Once all the calves had been over the scale, the food bank donations were loaded up onto the scale; trying to beat last year’s weight. Everyone had a smile on their face when the scale said 654 lbs.

    On November 6th, 4-H members across the country will be proudly wearing green to participate in “Show your colors day”. The next few months will be spent trying to get the animals to warm up to the members, and getting back into the rhythm of working with their calves.
