Announcing "Go Fund Me"



At Dick and Sharon Renfro’s was a smashing success. We had
36 participants coming from as far away as Billings. Elections

were held and Scott Hackett continues as VP and added Ed

Fryer, from White Sulphur Springs ,as our new Director. Not
only did we elect Ed as Director but he has agreed to hold our
Spring Meeting at the renowned Castle Mountain Ranch in
White Sulphur Springs.

Our Spring Meeting is set for May 21-22.

MDHMA is purchasing two new wagons to replace current vehicles. It was decided that replacement, in the long run, is cheaper than fixing old wagons.

One of the old wagons is for sale, minimum bid is $400. If you are interested or want to place a bid on the wagon, contact Donna Norgaard pmrmule@midrivers.com
or Alex Clemow at
alextgrt@aol.com or notate interest on Dues Renewal Form.

The other wagon sold to the MSU Driving Club.


The wagons are ordered. The picture is of a similar wagon but ours will have tongues instead of shaves the wagon pictured is 55” wide and we ordered a wagon 65” wide. They are still 10’ long, will have removable sides, brakes and come with a double rear step. The wagon is the same as what Herb built for NDSU.

The wagons cost $3,990 each and are fob Vining, MN so will have to arrange to get them. They are to be completed by April 2016 but in talking with Herb, he said he will call when they are finished if we want to pick them up earlier.

We have paid $3,990 and will have another $3,990 to pay when we take delivery so donations are needed and would be appreciated. If someone is going that direction, please let us know. I have visited with a trucking company and a member is going in that direction in May so we still have options.

I hope that the members enjoy the new wagons and that the wagons bring a positive public awareness about the MDHMA as well as Montana’s draft heritage.

 The Montana Draft Horse and Mule Association was formed in 1982 by a small group of Draft Horse and Mule enthusiasts interested in educational techniques of draft animal use in the farm and ranch setting.

Our Mission Statement:

To promote equine in harness or draft for education among the members and the general public
To encourage youth participation and to extend education about these draft animals, as well as the skills of working in harness or draft to anyone who is interested
To continue to recognize and preserve the historical heritage of the draft animal and its place in today's society
To teach and foster the fundamental values and skills, which are learned by working with animals for enjoyment,
recreation and entertainment by participating in equine shows, working horse and driver events and
Demonstrations, pleasure drives, parades, educational workshops and any other related events.
