So, update on the IDHA office opening: I do have my internet back (yeah!) But our area was slammed hard by the flooding in TX. Our road is finally open and we can get to town. Right now I'm helping neighbors who have until Wednesday to get all that they can salvage out of their flooded house. I am answering emails as best I can - but won't be getting to paperwork until Wednesday. I know our IDHA members are an awesome bunch of people and will understand! Just bear with me two more days! ... See MoreSee Less

It is with great sadness that we announce that Isobel Lippiatt, our Member At Large and our International Liaison has decided to step down from the board. Those of you that know Izzy, know that she is about to have some major surgery. She felt it best for the continued progress for the the IDHA and for her health (even more important Izzy!!) to step down and concentrate on her getting well and pain free. Izzy has been a great asset to the IDHA and has promised to continue on as an advisor on the International Committee.

Courtney Collins, who also ran for a board position in November has accepted the board position. Courtney lives in Australia, and is a member of the International Committee. She is breeding a lovely herd of Drums in Australia and is very active in showing and promotion. Welcome Aboard Courtney!

On a personal note.....Izzy - I couldn't have done all this without you. The many 2am Skype calls to Australia were well worth all the progress the IDHA has made in the last 6+ years. Thank you, from all of us! Here's to a speedy recovery! ~ Rebecca
