Corral Report was given by Jeff. He reported there are 6 horses at present with 2 horses away for training. Full payment is expected to hold spots for the 2 horses. Jeff, Paul, and Walt will work on solar water heater tanks this weekend. Electricity at corral needs to be checked out. Breaker boxes and plugs are not up to standards. Corral also needs work on re-siding of sheds and roofs. Bryan Murphy and Meg Wood will look into manure removal options. They will ask Felix about electrical work before looking into hiring a contractor. The Insurance Company will be called to check if any of the repairs would be covered.

Old Business – Charles reported the door knobs are fixed. He would like to see members write a wish list of repairs to be made. The deck needs inspection and some repairs. Paul will look into garbage disposal hook up this weekend.
