Anyone else from the UP? I'd love vet, farrier, feed mill recommendations. Also any showing or 4-H info for the area. My kids are 10, 5 and 2.
And...if anyone knows of any dog clubs. I also have a Doberman that shows and I like going to training classes. Sent from Petguide.com Free App
Hey, I hope it isn't too late to say hello!
I hope you love it up here! Fox Valley area is near Appleton, right? The UP is definitely very different than that area (been there a few times), but in a good way! The snow levels actually won't be much different than what you are used to in WI, thankfully.
I wish I could provide any recommendations for the Iron Mountain area. I'm closer to Escanaba, though.
I will let you know that the 4H groups in the UP are incredibly active. The Escanaba State Fair, for example, is phenomenal with huge 4H turnout. Michigan actually has no other state fair, so what happens in Esky is the big event for the state!
