ARABIANS (AHA)

ARABIANS

To my many endurance friends, who have suffered patiently with my gross misunderstanding of the Arabian horse, I want to publicly apologize on this web page!  As the owner of two of the most gorgeous, and most personable Arabians, I have changed my mind about this breed. I still believe that the Tennessee Walker can compete just as successfully as the Arabian in the Endurance World, but I no longer see the Arabian as a hot-headed little horse.

With that said (chuckle) I have found myself a new avenue in which to pursue my horse talents and skills.  I am in possession of a most awesome Polish-bred Arabians and one race bred (French lines) Arabian. I will be producing one marvelous foal each year from Praire.  My goals with these foals is to get them out into the Endurance World as successful competitors.  A bonus would be to see one of them make it to Tevis and triumph over the most grueling 100 mile race ever mapped out.

For more information on the Arabian Horse, please visit the website http://www.arabianhorses.org .  For more information on the Polish Sire lines, click here. For more information on the Shalimar breeding program, click here.

While I do not agree with, nor support the new “Arabian Look” which is predominant in the show ring, I still believe in the integrity of the Arabian horse breeding.  My Arabians are exactly what the original breeders demanded … People oriented, calm and trusting, willing to work hard without question, compact and easy to feed, and most of all – most beautiful!

In a controversial time of economic failure within the horse industry, I have many people asking me, “Why the heck are you breeding more horses?”  My goal as a small breeder is to produce one to two outstanding Arabian foals to compete in endurance.  These foals will be evaluated as they mature.  If they show endurance potential, they will be sold into an endurance home.  If they do NOT show endurance potential, they will be sold into a home that will understand and appreciate what they ARE meant to do…be it racing, showing or family companionship.

I have one well bred mare with an outstanding temperament and disposition, as well as correct conformation and intelligence, to breed to Shrapnel.  I believe that I am producing exceptional Arabians.  I am not interested in listening to people beat on me about bringing another horse into a world full of horses.  Horses do not end up in slaughter due to the breeders…it’s rare to see a foal at the slaughter house.  Horses end up in these situations because of their “current owner” and that’s all I have to say on this subject.

My horses now live in New Tripoli, PA – a short 7 mile trip up Rt 100 from the I-78 exit.  610-756-3836 or Email me at dodie@newpromisefarms.com

BoS Meeting June 5, 2017

There were 57 people in attendance at the meeting (THANK YOU!).

First item on the agenda was for the Board to hold an official Hearing. This was to pass the Zoning Ordinance Amendment. (Public Notice on April 10th 2017) Dan Becker, Solicitor reviewed the changes as proposed and the Board passed it unanimously. In short, they have removed the ability to have any kind of warehousing or storage in a commercially zoned district *AND* Warehousing in the industrial zoned districts are subject to Section 503.34 (Special Exception).

YAY for our Township!

There was nothing new from the Crossroads X Warehouse Project and their extension is valid through July 31, 2017. The owners of the property were in attendance at the meeting.

They had reviewed the three website propsals and have chosen to go with NE Studio to update and keep current the Greenwich Township website. YAY! We should see an updated website very shortly with information posted on a regular basis.

Due to the contradictory nature of the Ambulance propsals, the BoS has decided to forward the two submitted proposals to Berks County (Mr. Godshall) for review and advice on how to proceed.

DEP has approached the Township about putting into place a 537 plan for sewage control. This matter was discussed intensively with the residents in attendance. Basically, DEP wants a plan put into place (example, could be something as simple as residents have to empty their septic systems once every 3 years or could be something as extensive as annual testing and fining for failing systems.) The Township has been resistant to putting a plan in place as the costs are high, in the 6 figures, to design and implement a 537 plan. The township offered DEP to attend this public meeting and DEP refused.

Which brought up the question. Greenwich Residents requested a public meeting with DEP regarding the parcel of land proposed for Crossroads X. Dan Becker states that getting DEP to give us a public meeting is highly unlikely.

The BoS retired to chambers to discuss financial matters before the meeting concluded.
