#127 09-02-13 A History of Hoofbeats

In this episode, we hear the very first segment submitted by young Hilary Eastmure, which was about our youth reporter, who was then 13.  Then we hear Hilary's first on-site interview, with a friend, a farrier.  We are so grateful for the past involvement of this now pro reporter!

Hilary Eastmure recently moved to Nanaimo from the beautiful village of Elora, Ontario. After a newspaper column in The Fergus Elora News and acting as a hoofbeats radio contributor, host and all around supporting volunteer, she pursued her goal of working in radio and graduated from the Broadcast Journalism program at Conestoga College in 2011. When a community radio station opened in the neighbouring town of Fergus, and she was hired as the News Director for 92.9 The Grand.

In May, when she got the opportunity to take on the role of News Anchor/Reporter for 91.7 Coast FM, she made the move to Vancouver Island,  and traded a view of the Grand River for the Georgia Strait. She drove across the country with her rabbit Hershey and the reports that the Harbour City already feels like home. 

In this episode, we also hear the first "Hor-story" Segment as produced by Jessica Miller - this one about Evolution.

We also hear a cowboy poem from former co-host Mark Grice, as well as "Pony Daze" blog reading Farewells and Other Greetings, by Kim Logue.
