Friday Book Review: planning & recording

I know you're all just waiting on tenterhooks (What the heck is a tenterhook, anyway? - I had to look it up.) for my review of the horse astrology book! *grin*

But you're going to have to wait a little while longer. This week's review subject is actually more of a book-relation. It is, quite frankly, the one gift on MY Christmas list that T has strict orders to find, purchase, and gift me with this year, and for as many years to come as he can find them.

The Horse Savvy Day Planner - by Savvy Systems
If you're a planner person - and even if you're not - if you're a horse person, this is a COOL planner. Not only does it have the usual weekly layout, each week with a different horse picture and horse-y quotation, phone directory and notes section, it also has extra goodies.
  • An Equine Information section with space for 12 horse entries: sire & dam, breed info, registration number, age, markings, height, sex, etc.
  • A Vaccination & Worming section with columns pre-labeled with various vaccines and several left blank for write-in entries.
  • A Vet, Farrier, & Breeding section
  • An Expenses section
  • A Show Results section
  • And last, but not least, a monthly Appointments section for recording lessons scheduled (or taken) or whatever else strikes your fancy. peek inside this year's edition
They're spiral bound, and not in that - it's-going-to-fall-apart-in-three-weeks fashion, either. Mine sits by my desk at work, and I use it to keep track of my daily stuff there, as well as stapling in wormer and vaccine box tabs (for lot numbers), noting horse-health stuff like farrier visits & riding times. The company also has a photo contest every year - send them your horse pictures, and they might just get used in the next year's planner.
2009's edition will (it better!) be under the tree on Christmas day, which is a good thing, considering the last week of 2008's is full of post-its with dates & information to be transferred.

What can I say - I love this planner. T finds mine at Tractor Supply Company, but they're available at other locations, as well - or you can order direct.

How are you guys holding up on that side of the state? Heard you all got quite a bit of snow and are expecting high winds again? We are supposed to get it Saturday night.

Sorry I haven't been over to your blog in awhile...the days fly by.:(

Glad Sunny came out of his bellyache okay, the horses suffered no ill effects from no water(when they are on hay and no water is always when I worry about colic) for the day and that Foxy wasn't badly cut. Sheez-horses keep a person busy!!

Oh, and forgot to say...that is a very cool planner. I always start the New Year with one and keep up with it until about August. After that, they seem to disappear. I usually find them again in December-LOL!
