Ken & Karen Shutts of Lone Star Arabians in Magnolia, TX, are celebrating 2014 and looking forward to 2015, with plans to hit the ground running in January...
"Lone Star Arabians hosted its first potluck dinner with other local small breeders to celebrate and enjoy the holidays," writes Karen, "This first get-together of breeders of Egyptian Arabians was a big success. We all had a great time sharing a food and ideas. Everyone seemed eager to try to have clinics and to get together in the future at the shows, showing together and supporting each other."
With this spirit of camaraderie in mind, Lone Star Arabians has plans to attend the upcoming Houston All Arabian Show in Katy, TX, where Pyramid Society Members will have a presence with a member-hosted booth for Egyptian Arabian information and also through local Straight Egyptian classes for mares and stallions.
"LSA will be attending the annual Houston All Arabian Horse Show and co-hosting a Saturday evening BBQ and Horse Presentation with Michael Byatt Arabians. We are also taking seven horses to the show! Patriot LSA will be under saddle in Western Pleasure for the first time. Bint Rasheeka Shabha will be under saddle in the Hunter Pleasure classes." Lone Star plans to display several of their horses and to give away free breedings to some of their stallions on Saturday, with hopes to generate interest in the breed.
"We are hoping to encourage many of our area breeders to get out and come to the show," concludes Karen. The Pyramid Society wishes best of luck to Lone Star and all of the Egyptian Arabian breeders participating at HAAS!
