LAKESIDE FARMS FOR SALE OR LEASE We are closing our Tennessee Walking Horse stables in Guntersville, Ala., and we are offering the property for sale or rent. This is an opportunity to step into a business we have established during the past three years. Property is located 8 miles north of Guntersville on Highway No. 79. Consists of 46 acres with a 2-acre lake, upper and lower pastures, two riding rings. All under fence. Lake is fed in summer by a pipeline from the nearby TVA lake. Our lake is stocked with bass and bream. Two acres of hardwood trees furnish shade for brood mares and young colts in summer. Our main barn has 24 stalls with a hall 317 feet long that is ideal for indoor riding when the weather is disagreeable. Hay loft holds 6000 bales with an opening over each HORSE SCIENCE SCHOOL the field of agriculture, thereby en­ hancing the health and happiness of mankind.” "A staff of about six experts in their fields will conduct the lectures and laboratories," said Dr. Alexander. The course will include nutrition, genetics and physiology, health, care and handling, judging, equitation, etc. Dr. Ensminger was for 21 years chairman of the Department of Ani­ mal Science at Washington State University and preceding that he was on the staffs of the Universi­ ties of Massachusetts and Min­ nesota, and the U.S. Dept, of Agri­ culture. He is author of six books and innumerable articles. Since 1947, “Dr. E.” has served as consultant for General Electric Company Nucleonics Dept. (Atom­ ic Energy Commission). He de­ scribes himself as an “agricultural consultant.” Big Demand For Course While at Washington State, Dr. MARCH, 1965 stall for easy feeding. Automatic water to each stall.

E. originated and directed a short course on horses and other farm stock which was so outstanding and timely that there has been imme­ diately a great demand for more like it all over the country. In his monthly "Horses, Horses, Horses" column in the November issue of the Morgan Horse, the author reported that he had learned there was no such thing as a "beginner" among horsemen. No matter how "green," the would-be horseman considers himself an expert. Dr. E. made this discovery only this year when he scheduled a six- day Horse Science School for be­ ginners, followed by a four-day Advanced Horse Science School for the more experienced. The be­ ginners were offended to be called “beginners,” while the experienced shuddered because some rank ama­ teur might enroll in the advanced course! Attention! Agriservices' Horse Science School is not a clinic. It is a school, substantial enough for college credits. We welcome calls or visits from parties that are interested in inspecting the property or in learning more about our setup here. We are located in an area that contains many owners of Tennessee Walking Horses. Contact Curtis DeLamar, day or night Phone 582-3281 LAKESIDE FARMS Owned By Southern Newspapers, Inc.

In a recent article Dr. Ensmin­ ger pointed out that he had made a mistake recently in setting up two (2) classes at one horse school. One was for beginners and one was for the experienced horseman. He found out that there are no beginners in the horse business! I am sure that many of you have been in the Walking Horse busi­ ness all your lives and just might feel that there is nothing new that you can learn about horses. This (Continued on Page 12) 9
