Artist, E. Catherine Marie ,Simplicity is Elegance.

Retiring from dentistry in 2001, ECM spent the next year in England, on hiatus, pursuing beloved equestrian studies. Internationally recognized certifications in Horse Care and Riding were completed (British Horse Society). Upon returning stateside, a storage unit of personal items was emptied, and ECM relocated to Virginia. Retained dental equipment was put back into use, and those creative hands went back to work. Simultaneously, Grandfather's piece was handed down, and the birth of Tempi Design Studio was inspired and commenced.*
For any occasion, your signature piece awaits.

"What To Feed Your Horse" #1 Convenient "basic" introductory pack includes the 3 products Dr. Dan recommends as a feeding program for good health.

H2Oil Omega Coat Check - 1 gal
Provides essential 3, 6 & 9 Omega Oils
(Not Heat Processed)

Omega Coat Check is especially formulated to help avoid dry, flaky and itchy skin and is EXTREMELY palatable! Great for Brood Mares too! Also fats are critical in our horses diets today. The typical diet simply does not contain enough - Omega Coat Check adds it! Linoleic, Linolenic, Oleic (Omega 3,6, and 9)PLUS Lauric Acid. - These special oils/fats in Omega Coat Check (crude), mechanically extracted soybean and coconut oils) slow the absorption of feed down too.

This is very important because of the way we feed our horses today – usually just once or twice per day right? In the wild they ate ALL DAY. It is no wonder we have so much colic, laminitis, founder, etc. today. After the first meal of the day the blood glucose goes up quite high, then it crashes quite low. Your horse’s body says “feed me I am starving” and the glucose goes high again, then low, then high. This up and down cycle all day is a tremendous internal stress, even worse than occasional sickness because it occurs day after day after day.

This daily depletion of the body’s reserves leaves nothing for when a problem really occurs. Omega Coat Check -- A tremendous addition to any feed!

NCWHMuseum,Larry Mahan interview for the Rodeo Historical Society Oral History Project

Larry Mahan interview by Gail Woerner for the Rodeo Historical Society Oral History Project
Recorded in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Born in 1943 on a farm near Salem, Oregon, Larry Mahan is the 1966-1970 and 1973 All-Around Champion as well as the 1965 and 1967 Bull Riding Champion. Always a rough stock rider, he earned more than a half-million dollars in a professional career spanning sixteen years. Called the "cowboy in the gray flannel suit" by "Time" magazine, Larry Mahan was among the first professional hands to fly his own plane, conduct rodeo training schools, and hand out business cards on the circuit. After retiring from the arena in 1977, Larry Mahan began a successful business career. This hour-long interview was conducted in Oklahoma City at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

The hour-long interview is available for viewing at the Donald C. & Elizabeth M. Dickinson Research Center, National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Mesteño, the original lead stallion
for the Kiger herd.

In 1971 the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act was passed by congress to protect all wild horses and burros on public lands. The Bureau of Land Management was given the responsibility to protect, manage and control these wild populations. In order to keep the herds at manageable levels, roundups or gatherings are held periodically. At this time they are counted, branded and examined. Excess animals are offered for adoption to the public, and the rest are returned to the range.

In 1977, during one of these gatherings in the remote area of Beatty's Butte, Oregon, a particular kind of horse was discovered. BLM Wild Horse Specialist, E. Ron Harding, while inspecting the herd, noticed that a number of these horses were strikingly similar in color and conformation. Upon closer observation, he ascertained that they carried the primitive markings of the Spanish mustangs. Mr. Harding arranged for these horses to be separated from the rest and held at the Burns district facility in Oregon.

When the BLM had completed all the gatherings for that year, a suitable area was chosen to release these animals. To prevent losing all the horses to a natural catastrophe, two Herd Management Areas (HMA) were selected in southeastern Oregon. Twenty of the primitively marked horses were released in the Kiger HMA, and seven in the Riddle Mountain HMA.

Kiger Mustangs are an established breed. Spanish markers were found in their blood during genetic testing by the University of Kentucky. They carry the dominant genes which code for the primitive dun factor coloration and markings. Dun factor horses are most commonly identified as duns and grullas. Dun factor markings include: dorsal stripe, jack stripe, zebra stripes on legs, arm bars, bicolored mane and tail, ears with dark outline and fawn colored interior, facial mask and cobwebbing.

The Kiger Mustang is slightly smaller than most breeds. The ears are finely pointed and slightly hooked at the tip. The head displays a broad, flat forehead, wide, prominent eyes and fine muzzle. The body conformation of the Kiger is distinctive, with chest of good depth and width, and the back short, broad and well muscled. Dense bone, compact hooves and a well-crested neck round out this unique horse.
