I am so thrilled to note that Leigh Garber of Cazabu Farms has taken her Nokota horses to the EA this year and will do the presentation for the breed demo. They will be available in the stall next to the NHC booth and let me tell you that her tri color Nokota is knock your socks off gorgeous and I think he knows it. They are all fabulous and I'm sure Leigh will show them to their utmost. I understand she is a real pro.
Please let me know if you see them, stop at the booth, please say hello for me and take some pics. I wish I could be there to see them. I'm sure that when they return to ND that they will show photos on the web site of the long weekend.
Frank Kuntz also brought 2 good looking Nokota horses who have been at least started, they are young and ready to go, and for sale. I think they may stay in the barns, not sure. I don't know how much they can handle, coming straight from ND and not having gone to any events, those buildings can be pretty creepy. They've been traveling for days too, with a brief break in PA.
If you go, please do check out the booth and the horses and tell me all about it!

If you saw the Nokota horses please let me know what you think of the booth and the horses that were there. Did you find them interesting, worth preserving as a breed?
You can still go to the Nokota Horse Conservancy web site and look at more photos and read more about them. www.nokotahorse.org This year donations are down and things are rough going. Winter has already arrived in ND and they are eating up the hay, but at least they do have some hay this year unlike the drought years and witht he prairie fires.
Thanks for sharing, I spent Tuesday with Shelly, the lady with long blonde hair, we shopped here at the Outback store for great sales and Dansko outlet. I told her the prices would be higher at the expo.
I'm glad to hear that the booth looked good to your eyes, it's so hard to look objectively. I'm sorry you didn't see the tri color Nokota, he is so handsome. I wonder if you saw Heart River, he was there last year too. But if he had a for sale sign that would surprise me. One of these days I'm going to go again, I take a train.
