The subject line stopped me in my tracks, “My Experience with Tony ("Mountain Man") and His 31 Dogs”. Tony… Mountain Man. It had to be him! The first line of the article mentioned that Tony had been living deep in the woods of Natchez Trace State Park in Tennessee. My heart skipped a beat.
The email message was from Scotlund Haisley of Animal Rescue Corps, who said that in January they had completed five rescue missions in Tennessee. Scotlund remarked that he had found himself reflecting again and again on one rescue of the five that was not their usual case.

What is equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (EPM)?
EPM is a disease of the central nervous system (brain and/or spinal cord) that is caused by the protozoal organism Sarcocystis neurona. The main host for this organism is the opossum and horses that are exposed to opossum feces with infective sporocysts can develop neurologic disease. Other hosts of S. neurona include armadillos, skunks, and domestic cats; however, these animals cannot directly transmit the disease to horses.

You've probably heard that eggs should be stored with the pointy end facing downwards, but often wondered why? Or maybe you've not ever heard that and you're reading it here for the first time. Either way, it's the truth. Eggs should be stored pointed end down. But why? Well, I'll explain it to you.

Let me tell you about Bugsy. He was an Appendix Quarter Horse I rescued a few years ago. When he came to me, he was significantly underweight, suffered from an old stifle injury, and had a distrustful attitude. A few months later, he’d filled out, was running up and down hills with ease, and showed the curiosity and warmth of a youngster. How old was he? 25. Not old by today’s standards and yet, definitely up there. What made the difference? Nutrition played a big part in his improvement.

Senior dogs have a special place in my heart. This is the story of a senior dog who ended up in an animal shelter after her owner passed away. Trigger’s days were numbered until a caring person halfway across the country decided that she would not let this dog die. On October 26th, I received an e-mail message from Julie in Ohio. She’d heard about a 14-year-old female Australian Cattle Dog who had been surrendered to a county animal shelter in Arizona on September 12th. A euthanasia date was already set for this old girl, for first thing in the morning on Friday, October 30th, just four days away.
It is tough to be a champion in any FEI discipline. But, what does it take to excel at two? Just as Shelly Temple who with her 17 year old Morgan gelding LR Ami B-Line (“Cooper”) recently earned the US Dressage Federations silver medal. Shelly has concentrated on ridden dressage with Cooper since his informal retirement from the sport of combined driving in 2013. Shelly and Cooper finalized the silver medal in September at the Pumpkin Patch Dressage Show in Camden, South Carolina with coach Amy McElroy.
Although Shelly was a former dressage rider during her equestrian career, Cooper was primarily a combined driving pony. Their partnership result in Shelly and Cooper being crowned US National Champion Single Pony in 2006, 2010 and 2011 as well as members of the US Pony Driving team in 2007 and 2011. In the World Championships, Shelly and Cooper won silver and bronze medals in driven dressage as well as two Bronze Team medals. Shelly is sponsored by Omega Fields; “Omega Fields’ Horseshine has been an important part of Cooper’s feeding regimen for years. His coat looks fantastic, and he continues to have health hooves.”
Shelly’s next goal is earning her USDF gold medal with her longtime partner, Cooper.
Catalyst Driving Center is an equestrian driving facility in Windsor, South Carolina specializing in the training of all levels of drivers and horses. Please feel free to contact Shelly to learn more about her, the products she trusts, her horses, and what Catalyst Driving can offer the driving enthusiast.
