A community effort

ENNIS—As the Southern California Incident Management Team (IMT) began setting up camp in Ennis on August 13 to begin work on the Wigwam and Monument fires. But as the arrived, one key element was still missing:

Reeves at work -  filing the hoof flat, with Ace, supervising

Johnny’s new shoes

TRAIL CREEK – “Most people know me bent over better than face-to-face,” says a chuckling Kristi Reeves, while she trimmed the hooves of “Johnny,” a big bay quarter horse. “They don’t recognize me standing up. But they know I usually wear Wrangler jeans and have a (hoof) knife on the right side,” she continued.

The Prairie Rattlensake (also called the Western Rattlesnake) is the only venomous species of snake out of the ten species in Montana. (MT FWP)

Don’t get rattled!

ENNIS—As the days get hotter and drier, it’s important to watch the ground while hiking, running, horseback riding and walking dogs. The Madison Valley is home to several species of snakes, including Montana’s only venomous one: the prairie rattlesnake (also known as the western rattlesnake).
