Checks and refunds are going out this weekend. If you don't get your check and you feel the need to text, call or email me please ask yourself the following questions first...
1) Did I update my address in Saddlebook like my friendly producer asked me to and let her know that the address that printed on my check is probably not correct?
2) Did I fill out a w9 and send it to that same friendly producer like she asked me to 10 days ago? If the answer to this question is no then there is an easy fix. Send me a completed w9. I have 42 checks that I do not have w9's for.
3) Did I already pick up my check? Did I check the results to see if I even have a check coming to me? Now I know this one sounds crazy but I have had several of them already. Apparently it is too much work to actually look at results and much easier to call your friendly intoxicated producer and make her look it up as if she is your personal secretary. I had to go pull up the cleared check to prove to one that she had in fact already cashed her check. I wish I was making this up...
Now, after those things it is entirely possible that your check was not delivered by the post office. Gasp! Did I just insult a government agency?!?!? It happens...please wait until next weekend before you start bombarding my email and give the post office a chance.
Some of you are waiting on Buckles. I will ship those on Monday or Tuesday at the actual post office because I want to insure and track them.
Please cash you checks! They are printed "not valid after 90 days". That is not printed just to fill dead space. I mean it. It's like some of you hate money! When you send me a sad email about how you forgot about your check and tried to cash it a year later and the bank wouldn't take it I will beat my head against my keyboard as I push delete. My accountant has zero sense of humor when it comes to me writing random checks that are a year old.
Other than that, I hope you all recovered from your Vegas weekend. I have never been given so many bottles of alcohol in pretty, shiney bags!🤣🤣
Congratulations Jessica Young on winning the trailer raffle! Thank you Hitchin Post Trailers and Trails West for making it possible for us to give it away. Also, thank you to all of you that bought tickets. We sold some online up until the last minute and even had a few people buy them as we were walking the spinner out to the arena. We will be donating the trailer raffle money to the Gray Foundation as they fight for a cure for Batten Disease and the continuing treatment for these kids.

In 2017, we applied for our own 501c.3 and have been approved. We have been able to help 12 other families with financial assistance while their children are hospitalized or in need of surgery.
It is our mission to continue to help other families with medical and travel expenses. We would also like to assist with medical equipment such as wheelchairs and gait trainers along with everyday expenses such as meals and utility bills. We will be visiting a local NICU in October of 2019 to write 35, $1000 checks to families with children that are struggling.
