In February we partnered up for the Polar Plunge Fundraiser,
with INCLET ( Idahoans for Non Lethal Canine Encounter Training) and Lewiston Police Department to raise money for the training of local law enforcement in "Defensive Tactics: Canine Encounters" a regional education program on canine body language and alternatives to use of force, a program designed to train & certify trainers who will then instruct other law enforcement personnel, and the purchase of animal catchpoles. Our goal was set at $5000 and we came close at $4210.15! All of which went directly back into our community thanks to all who donated and volunteered!

Last summer Jacklynn Mathews and her
success story Terrific Blue Horizon, gave us a wonderfully informative demonstration on how equine massage and stretching can help your horse to overcome and prevent new and old injuries. We are lucky to be welcoming her back again this year, so if you missed out last year, you have another chance this year!

Essential Oils for Animals
Kayla Howard, credited in studies from Pacific Institute of Aromatherapy, showed us how essential oils are not only good for us, but for our pets too! Those who attended walked with tons of samples and hand outs, and probably way more information than a person could take in at one sitting!
That's why we videoed the whole thing! Here are the links to the 3 parts of this great clinic. Essential Oils in the Barn Essential Oils for Horses Raindrop Therapy Technique

"Coming Together To Last Forever"
Building A Bond Between Species is a 501c3 Non-Profit created to assist equine and canine owners by providing access to basic education, information, support, emergency aid, and activities that promote partnership and bonding. It is the intent of B.A.B.B.S. to help reduce the number of horses, donkeys, mules, and dogs that are re-homed or relinquished each year because of behavioral issues, financial hardships, or lack of owner knowledge. B.A.B.B.S. believes that by providing these resources the connection between owner and animal will be strengthened, resulting in fewer equines and canines being sent to shelters, rescues, auctions, or being abandoned.
