        Bad News Department
        Our expansion plans have hit a snag:

Aultman Farm—We previously announced we would be purchasing the Aultman
farm on the corner of Purdon Line and Hwy #11. However, MTO will not allow
expansion of the facility including refusal to grant a building permit for any con-
struction at the farm as they considered Purdon Line a “dangerous intersection”.
I guess no one from MTO has been South of Powassan to see some really
“dangerous intersections”!

Lot Across From Farm—We planned on purchasing the lot directly across from the farm (former oil
storage site) and using it for parking for shows and special events. Unfortunately, the zoning is not
compatible so we will not be proceeding with the purchase.

        Good News Department
        Good news outweighs the bad news!
Grand Prix Ring—Well underway. The clearing, ditching and drainage is complete. We used over
3000’ of drainage pipe. Next step is to compact the surface, bring in 5 1/2” of stonedust and compact it
and finally 2 1/2” of filtered beach sand. The ring will be over 1 acre in size and will be fenced with white
PVC posts and rails. We hope to finish the footing with Arena Kleen for dust control and footing

Outdoor Lights for Outdoor Ring—Completed. These lights will be very useful for the fall when
darkness comes earlier. The red switch on the pole beside the judge’s booth turns on the lights. Make
sure you turn red switch off when finished. Use discretion in use to control Hydro costs.

Temporary Stalls —New temporary stalls will be arriving first week of August along with the wood.
We have purchased 40 temporary stalls and will install them in the small arena for the Classic Trillium
Show August 14, 15, 16. The stalls will be erected on a site behind the new house in the fall.

New Stalls—We will be erecting 9 more box stalls at the end of the small arena. The stalls are
designed by Systems Fencing and will be 10’X10’ in size. They will serve for overflow of horses and

Mickey aka Seco’s Grey Duster—And finally, Mickey has come home! The handsome grey gelding
has been away since late fall and has now returned. He is looking for someone to part-board or lease
him. Mickey is equally talented in both English and Western.
