This year, we are happy to say that we will be making a donation of supplies to the Angola Prison Horse Program. The Angola Prison Horse Program provides so much to the community and is a healthy and encouraged activity for inmate reform.

First Time Public Auction of Angola Prison Horses

(Angola, La.) - The 2010 Angola Prison Horse Sale is the first time that some of the finest horses bred and raised at Angola Prison will be offered for sale at Angola Prison at public auction. The horse sale is set for October 16, 2010 with a preview afternoon set for October 15, 2010.

Angola Prison horses combine the best of quarter horse, thoroughbred, Dutch Warmblood and draft lines to produce all-around performance or pleasure horses. Many of these amazing horses are service horses working with police officers as mounted patrols throughout the United States.

The Angola Prison Horse Sale is part of the third weekend of the Angola Rodeo. The Angola Rodeo, the longest running prison rodeo in the nation, got its start in 1965.

“This sale has been a long time dream of Warden Burl Cain,” said Julie Calzone. “I connected with the Warden through my work with the Louisiana Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and board member, Dr. Debra DePrato. What started as a phone conversation with fellow horse lovers has turned into a mission to connect horses and people to improve each others’ lives.”

Most of the horses that will be sold on October 16 are listed on the sale website: www.angolaprisonhorsesale.com. There are horses that are already under saddle along with many younger prospects that are ready to start under saddle. They come from lineage that has proven to be good work and performance horses.

“Our horse program really reflects something that Winston Churchill is known for saying,” stated Warden Burl Cain. ”’There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.’”

The horse sale was timed to be part of the October rodeo program. Many of the hobby craft exhibits will be open on sale day to provide spectators and buyers with something for the whole family to do. Admission to the horse sale is free, but buyers need to review the conditions of sale and complete a buyer registration prior to participating in the sale. Both are available online on the website.

“The horses are amazing,” said long time horsewoman and sales manager, Charlotte Stemmans Clavier. “I come from a family with generations in the thoroughbred horse racing industry. Horses are a way of life for our family.” Stemmans, Inc., a licensed auction company, was awarded the auction contract through a public bid process. Stemmans, Inc. has been conducting horse sales for decades, most recently the two-year old in training sale at Evangeline Downs.

Times just flies when you are productive, creative and busy. Our client roster has expanded tremendously since our last post on this blog. You will see the results of those acquisitions here and on our website.

We are passionate about what we do and that allows us to make a difference for all of the businesses, organizations and people we touch.

We have evolved as highly skilled social media marketers in addition to the "conventional" marketing channels. When you think about it, social media marketing is nothing more than an extension of direct and niche marketing. Both allow us to deliver messages in a timely manner and with a frequency that can mirror standard media placement.

The end game is to create community and customers for our clients. It takes time, but there is certainly a critical mass mark for each project we develop. Once that mark is reached, then it rolls at a faster rate. What helps is being able to measure all of it.

We've also taken a huge step into cloud computing in order to ensure we are all looking at the same data without having to access a single computer.

What we hope is that all of the technology creates opportunities for customers to look up from their PDAs and computers to stop and smell the roses. We want to open their eyes to the experience that is real life.

We are honored to represent physicians with this approach.

At Plastic Surgery Associates, we base our beliefs and our practice around superior patient care. We believe each patient has the right to an individual assessment concerning his or her health and wellbeing. This type of care requires a realistic assessment of what can and cannot be achieved with surgical procedures. Catalogue-like shopping for surgery can be misleading for the patient. The selection of treatment options involves much more than browsing through pictures. We believe that treatment options should be selected with the guidance of a plastic surgeon. To develop realistic expectations from any procedure a full consultation in the privacy of our office is necessary.

DADS LOVE SPAS, TOO!


These days, Dads are hooked on spa treatments just as much as moms and because of this men have become a vital part of the spa industry.

The men’s grooming market continues to expand, despite the economic downturn during the past few years. Men actually account for as much as 48% of the spa-going population, according to Wellness Capital Management.

Men are just as much into anti-aging and grooming services specific to them as those services that are specific to women AND they love the comfort factor. Guys may not need the frills that female clients need but adding a little masculine design with treatments and relaxation areas specifically designated for men are becoming more and more popular. Men seem to be more willing to disclose their age-related concerns once they are safely behind closed doors and our licensed aestheticians are trained to address these needs with facials designed specifically for men.

Image Is Everything

More than one-third of American men surveyed said they rely on a grooming routine to look more professional, according to the healthcare firm Allergan. One-quarter indicated that their grooming regimes help them to maintain a competitive edge in the workplace. Men today embrace nail services to appear well groomed which helps to boost their professional image.

Contrary to prevailing machismo attitude of recent decades, men throughout history have taken pride in their grooming habits. Ancient Egyptian men used face serums and creams, and exhumed tombs later uncovered pharaohs who were buried with these potions for the afterlife. In Renaissance-era England, men used face powders and moisturizers infused with herbs and flowers. Grooming products for men continued to flourish during the 19th and 20 centuries with an array of pomades, lotions and potions. And like so many trends-from fashion to food- male grooming gained popularity and shed its “girly man” stigma in Europe, Asia and Africa before slowly making its way to the United States.

Spa Mizan has incorporated masculine elements into our tropical Balinese design to make guys feel more comfortable and relaxed. Men love our men’s suite decked out with Internet access, and a 52” flat-screen TV where they can experience private services while watching their favorite sports event, keeping up with the stock market or simply enjoy the peaceful sounds of their favorite spa music.

The #1 requested service, across the board for men in the spa industry is massage. 73% of men surveyed selected massage as the most preferred spa treatment. Understanding the hobbies and pastimes of men allows the therapist to develop a more personalized treatment designed to address specific needs of each guest. Men who take their sports seriously often incorporate regular massage as part of their training. Massage for golfers and runners helps to improve flexibility by targeting specific muscles. The therapist can tailor each treatment to release tension and improve flexibility by using different techniques before and after the athletic event.

So if you are still not sure what to get Dad this Father’s Day, why not treat him to his veryown day at Spa Mizan. Special men’s packages are available and can be viewed on our web-site at www.spamizan.com.

Faudree Shows Us The Way To Success

Three Days Three Ways Interviews Will Faudree
By Courtney Young
Created 2010-04-19 22:55
Are you ready for Rolex Kentucky? Will Faudree is, and he'll be there with his Stetson firmly in place at the jog on Wednesday, April 21, showing off the talented and beautiful Pawlow. Will is well-known for his Texas heritage and his smile, but his ability to turn in an efficient, smooth cross-country round has taken this 28-year-old from team gold at the North American Young Riders Championships in 2001 to team gold at the 2003 Pan American Games to the FEI World Equestrian Games in 2006. Rolex Kentucky may be Pawlow's first four-star, but he and Faudree have gone from strength to strength with a win at the Southern Pines Horse Trials (N.C.) this spring and an 11th-placed finish at the Blenheim CCI*** (England) last fall. Will took some time out of his busy schedule at Gavilan Farm in Hoffman, N.C., to answer a few questions from blogger Three Days, Three Ways before he made the trek to Lexington.

Q. How would you describe yourself?
A. I don't know. I've always wanted, for as long as I can remember, to be a professional event rider. It's been my focus and my goal, and I love it. I am very passionate about the sport and passionate about the animals and feel very fortunate that I get to compete and do what it is I love to do.

Q. How did you come across eventing?
A. I grew up in Midland, Texas, which is west Texas. There's a small group of eventers out there now, but I started in the hunter/jumper world when I was 7 years old. I saw the '88 Olympics on TV and decided I wanted to jump the jumps. I drifted into eventing after I saw a movie called Sylvester about a ranch girl and her horse who end up going to Rolex, actually. It's an old western. I thought that was cool. A friend of my mom's told me about aKaren O'Connor clinic in San Antonio. I didn't ride in it, but we went and watched. That was in '94 I think. It was my first taste of eventing and it stuck.

Q. What are you so passionate about when it comes to eventing?
A. The sport. The horses. I think eventing, of all the equestrian sports, demands horsemanship, and I think that's really important. I love every day that I get to get up and work with the horses and be with them. It's not just about the riding. It's not just the competition. It's the day in and day out routine that I love and am passionate about.

Q. How would you describe your teaching style?
A. I've been very fortunate in my life to work with some pretty incredible instructors. I was based with Phillip Dutton as a working student and worked a lot with Karen and David O'Connor coming up through the Young Rider ranks. I was fortunate enough to be named to the USEF Winter Training list starting in 2003 and so have been able to work with Mark Phillips over the last seven years.
My friend Bobby Costello has helped me immensely. Having worked with so many great instructors has influenced my teaching. My philosophy is, when I get on my horse whether it's dressage or jumping or a trot set, I want to have a goal. What do I want to accomplish today? I want to do what I can to meet that goal that day. It's important to have long-term goals and vision, but it's also important to dissect that to make that ultimate goal a reality.

Q. What does the week before Rolex Kentucky look like for you?
A. At this point everything is done in the horse's training and fitness. If they're not fit now, they're not getting fit. If they don't know how to do a change now, they're not going to. Now it's magnifying the tools that I already have, that I know exist and can do in the dressage ring, on cross-country, and in show jumping. They should come out of this week and go into next week feeling like King Kong. They need to come into the competition feeling like they can take over the world. I taper the fitness so they think something must be coming up. They're not working quite as hard, so they're getting a bit more energy that way.

Q. Any additional things you need to pack?
A. At the end of the day, it's another horse show. That's something that's really important to remember. You want everything to be done: The brass needs to be shiny and your tack clean, but that's the standard that I expect of myself on a daily basis. So luckily I've got a great support staff at home, and the trailer is packed up and ready to go. So there's nothing extra special. The only extra thing is the two outfits for the jog-up!

Q. How do you get Pawlow ready for Rolex Kentucky as far as fitness and soundness? And how do you pronounce his name?
A. Mainly like "Paulo." He was bred by a Polish man named Ernesto Pavlovisnki. so the correct pronunciation would be like "Pavlov." He's Ernie to me. It's "Paulo" or "Pavlov," whatever mood the announcer is in! Every horse is different. Not one person is going to copy the next person in getting the horse prepared mentally and physically. Everyone_s fitness program differs. Some have the luxury of hills; some are on the flat. We're on sand footing. My fitness program starts in December when the horses come into work. It's important to do long walks and trots in addition to galloping. Some people think it's no longer long format, so we don't have to do as much fitness. But that's not correct. I do a lot of very long trot sets and gallop every five days. In the winter-December,
January, February-I do interval work in their canter sets. When they start competing, it's more sprinting since they have their base fitness. As far as maintaining fitness, that varies left and right depending on the horse. One thing I do routinely with all my upper-level horses is Adequan and Legend, and they get fed a joint supplement. I'm fortunate to be sponsored by FarmVet and Cavalor, and I believe that helps my horses the best that I can. One thing that's really important is I trot [the horses] every Monday morning for the vet. Keep professionalizing the horses so you can see the slightest change. Maintaining the horses is recognizing something that's not in their normal routine. I'm fortunate in that respect that I have a good farrier and a good vet who have their eyes on my horses a minimum of once a week.

Q. You placed fourth in the CIC*** at The Fork in North Carolina a couple weekends ago ahead of some impressive names and horses. What needs to happen to repeat such a great performance, or better it, at Rolex Kentucky?
A. The important thing is I go into every competition with a clear head knowing I have prepared my horse the best I know how to and that my horse is feeling as confident as he can. I want to go in with three solid performances, and where that places me in the end is where it places me in the end. I was very pleased with my horse cross-coutnry at The Fork. I threw away way too many points in the dressage. Obviously, I've come away working on giving myself better sharpness with the tools that I have. I was very pleased with our show jumping, and Katie Prudent, who has been working with the winter training list, had very good points after the round. I'm definitely going to think of those going into the next competition.

Q. Do you have any pre-ride rituals?
A. I listen to music. I love the musical "Wicked" (my friends think I'm crazy). I listen to music, and I focus myself that way. Music is a very handy tool for me.

Q. Is riding at Rolex Kentucky different than riding at, say, The Fork or Jersey Fresh?
A. Yeah, there's an unbelievable feel to Rolex. I've competed at the World Equestrian Games and [the Badminton CCI**** (England)] and [the Burghley CCI**** (England)] on Antigua, and for me there's so much history there; they've been around for so long. But there's something special about Rolex. At the end of the day it's another event, but it's a really cool feeling when you drive into the Kentucky Hose Park. They do an amazing job, and it's a little bit of an out of this world feeling, like this is in our backyard, this is so cool! We've all worked so hard to get there, so when you drive in it's exciting to go and get to do what you've worked up to doing.

Q. What's your favorite part of Rolex Kentucky?
A. Everything about it! You get to walk around, and it's like "Oh My God." It's really a feeling that you can't describe. There are no words.

Q. If fans want to support you what can they do? Cheer at the water jump?
Autograph signings?
A. I'm doing an autograph signing Thursday or Friday at the USEF booth at lunch. I'll do a Bit of Britain/Nunn Finer course walk at some point too. But if you see me, grab me! I read something somewhere that I was unapproachable or scary, and I'm not. I'll talk to anyone. Come talk to me!

Q. So let's say all goes well at Rolex Kentukcy? What's next?
A. He'll have a break after Kentucky for a little bit, and then we'll see if WEG looks like it's going to be in the fall plan or we may try to take him over to Burghley. This is his first four-star, but every challenge this horse has been handed he's answered and followed up by saying "What next?" He's got a great attitude, and he's a really great horse. I'm excited for what Rolex will bring, and what goes beyond that we'll have to wait and see!

Q. Anything to add?
A. I'd love to say that Jennifer Mosing, who owns Ernie [Pawlow], is an incredible friend of mine and an incredible owner. I am so fortunate to have someone like her in my career as an owner and a friend. She's a really great woman. Her oldest daughter is Kaitlynn, and she_s one of my working students. She just did her first prelim at Longleaf and finished fourth! Jennifer came up for that, and then we'll drive to Kentucky together. It's going to be a lot of fun.

The Equestrian Practice Keeps Getting Bigger.

The last month has been an amazing time for Calzone. Our firm has landed several new accounts that fit exactly what we know how to do and what we are passionate about in life.

Among the latest additions are Classic Equine Equipment and Buckley Fence. These U.S. companies have been and are creating world-class, excellent products that define the equestrian market and meet the high quality standards that horsemen and horsewomen demand. We see so many other markets for them in residential and commercial arenas, but that is for the future.

What is so great about these companies is their standard of excellence and commitment to a higher purpose in the definition of what they do and how they do it. They are poised for a rebounding economy while still doing significant business.

Stay tuned to see the work and learn more about these companies. We are so excited to be chosen.

Two Calzones and A Senator


(Senator Mary Landrieu, Calzone (Dutch Warmblood) and Julie Calzone, Calzone/CEO)

What does a long-time Senator and Calzone CEO, Julie Calzone, have in common - horses. Senator Mary Landrieu not only had ridden horses, she drives her daughter to riding lessons and horse shows three days a week from her home in D.C. Her daughter is a champion equestrienne.

The two women connected when the Senator was a keynote speaker at an awards luncheon that Calzone was an award's recipient.

Both are combining their passion and love for horses in an effort to support and grown the horse industry in Louisiana. Louisiana's economic impact is current measured at $2.45 billion and the state ranks #5 in the U.S.

Calzone has a large stable of equestrian clients: Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Associations, Evangeline Downs, Sterling Silver Stables, Will Faudree, Tanglewood Farm and Honeybrook Farm. Julie Calzone is also a principal and owner of Equine Motorcoach and Equine Alert.
