      Tempting the fates yet again, I will try to respond, again......  Living Dangerously

      (I HATE the "see how wonderful I am" part of résumés!  And the "introducing oneself to the group":
      "Hello, my name is Anne and I am a horse-aholic." :-})

      From Mistress Anne Fawnhaven, to the members of the Eq List, Greetings ~

      I have always been "a Westie" (makes me feel like a terrier!  ;-}).  I have
      spent most of my "SCA career" in Cynagua, although my heart and fealty is to
      House Guildemar (the Mists), which has made for some "fun times" amoung
      friends when the Mists/Cynagua Wars roll around.  I have been in the SCA
      more years than I admit to, and have been riding, training, and showing for
      more than half again as long.  These disciplines include Halter/Showmanship,
      Western (pleasure, equitation, trail, dry stock/reining), English (also
      pleasure & equitation, hunt seat, and jumping), and Gymkhana. I have done
      some cattle work, and have trained, although not shown (yet), in lower level
      dressage and a little driving.  I have trained horses (from "green/almost
      halter broke" to "amateur show" levels, both Western and English) for other
      riders, as well, of course, as myself, and have taught riding and groundwork
      to a few beginning riders.  I have competed in SCA Equestrian sports in the
      past and spent a lot of time as ground crew, and am honoured to be a member
      of the Order of the King's Lance.

      I am currently "between rides", having given up my last baby (2000+lbs of
      Belgian draft) when I moved from Sutter to Santa Cruz.  Shortly after that
      move, I had to move to the Sacramento area, for family health reasons, and
      am just now starting to look at filling the void.  (Looking for something on the tall
      side (16+h) and with mass (even when I do get back down to a decent riding
      weight, I am 6 feet tall....  "Ponies" and I just don 't look right.)  Needs
      to be clean and sound enough for "baby 3-day Eventing"; experienced is good,
      but good heart and attitude is better; all leads gratefully accepted... so
      to speak... ).

      I am also a Registered Veterinary Technician, and although I have the
      largest focus of experience in Small Animal Medicine, I have worked in the
      Large Animal/Equine Medicine field as well.

      Okay... enough about me...  well almost

      I am putting together a "personal study book".  Eventually I hope it will
      encompass everything from anatomy/physiology/psychology, to lesson plans and
      financial projections.  It should cover historical as well as modern
      observations, and I expect that it will only take 400-500 years to complete.
      (Okay, I expect it to be a work in progress for the rest of my life)  If
      anyone is interested in collaborating, please contact me privately.

      I look forward to getting to know all of you better, and to the friendships
      yet to develop.
