The Midwest Fjord Horse
A Message from the MWFHC Board
by: Denny Redfield, MWFHC President
I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope you had a Merry Christmas!
Here in Minnesota we have been in the deep freeze since before Christmas, you know it’s cold when it takes longer to put on your chore clothes than to do the chores. The Fjords are truly a hardy breed when it comes to the cold since you’ll find them out playing when it’s -20. All this cold weather makes me look forward to the annual ritual of grooming Fjord hair off my jacket.
We’re looking forward to the Spring meeting and to the Blue Earth Show. The Club Officers have a conference call once a month. I’d like to thank Andrew, Jessica and Karen for all the input and taking time away from their busy schedules. We welcome any suggestions you have anytime. Please share your ideas with me or any of the officers.
I’d also like to say thanks to the past officers, Kay, Therine, Sarah, Janie, and Kristin for all there hard work and helping with the transition to the new officers.
I want to remind everyone that membership dues run from January to December. So it’s time to renew. Reminders will be emailed or mailed to those who have requested mailing.
In this coming year I would like to see more input from our club members. Let’s hear from you about what your doing with your Fjords, send pictures, info on upcoming events, rides and drives you been on. It’s hard to put together a newsletter without information to put in it, so please share with our tidbits editor so we can share with all the club members.
Cheers to a great 2018,
