CAGEY JANE'S CATERS TO ANIMAL LOVERS Print E-mail
April 29, 2000 11:00 pm

Kelly Dresen enjoys being around horses and desires to cater to others who are fond of the animals.

She has chosen to cater to horse owners by opening Cagey Jane's Western Outfitters, located in the former Reliance Appliance building, next door to the appliance store's new location.

Cagey Jane's has scheduled a grand opening today (April 29) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Prizes will be given away including a "Spring Clean Show Sheen" truck and trailer detail from Nick's and Dent's Auto Body, Dresen said.

Dresen and her husband Nick own Cagey Jane's and Nick's and Dent's.

Cagey Jane's offers custom show clothes, show and trail tack and grooming supplies, gifts, greeting cards, diaries, note pads, T-shirts, kitchen items, iron art, log furniture, western bedding and more, Dresen said.

Dresen said she chose to open the store after buying her first horse a couple of years ago. She bought a second horse a couple of months later.

"I wanted to start showing my quarter horse," Dresen said "When I was getting ready to show, I couldn't find any of the right show equipment. I had to drive several hours to buy tack and clothes."

So, she decided to open a store that caters to people who like to show their horses and 4-H participants.

She is able to special order what customers desire. Show clothes are custom made and may be ordered and designed to fit the customer's style, Dresen said.

"But I don't want to limit my store only to those who ride horses," Dresen said. "That's why I have a lot of unique gift items things that anyone can enjoy."

Dresen said she has hired one employee, Shannon Berry, who is familiar with horses. Berry is this year's Curry County Fair and Rodeo queen.

Cagey Jane's may be reached by calling (541) 412-RIDE (412-7433) or toll-free (877) 808-RIDE, or by stopping by 16220 W. Hoffeldt Lane.

Business hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

  • Asian stocks subdued in holiday thin trade, Ukraine tensions mount
    Asian stock markets started the week on a subdued note on Monday, as tensions in Ukraine kept investors cautious amid the absence of catalysts as several markets remained closed for Easter holiday. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan inched down 0.1 percent. Japan's Nikkei stock average, one of the few major stock markets that traded on Friday, edged up 0.5 percent. Global markets have been buffeted in recent weeks by tensions in Ukraine, signs of slowing growth in China and uncertainty over when the U.S. Federal Reserve would start to tighten interest rates.
  • GM to battle VW in China with $12 billion investment and new plants
    U.S. car giant General Motors Corp (GM) (GM) plans to invest $12 billion in China from 2014 to 2017 and build more plants next year as it competes with aggressive rivals in the world's largest auto market. GM expects its China sales to expand 8-10 percent this year, in line with the overall growth of the Chinese market, where foreign firms, such as Volkswagen AG (VOW3.DE), and domestic players like SAIC Motor Corp vie for more market share. In total we are investing $12 billion between 2014 and 2017," Matt Tsien, president of GM China, said at the Auto China show in Beijing. GM plans to build five more plants in China next year, as part of its efforts to ramp up manufacturing capacity there by 65 percent by 2020, executives said on Sunday.
  • Pipeline delay gives boost to Obama's political base
    The latest delay to a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will reinforce a White House strategy to energize President Barack Obama's liberal-leaning base before fall elections in which Democrats risk losing control of the U.S. Senate. Environmentalists, worried about the project's effect on climate change, have put enormous pressure on the president to reject the pipeline from Canada's oil sands, staging demonstrations outside the White House and protests in states where he travels. A decision to approve it now could have prompted that vocal group, which was instrumental in electing Obama in 2008 and 2012, to sit out the November 4 congressional elections. The State Department's announcement on Friday that it would give government agencies more time to study the project was seen by strategists from both parties as a move to prevent that and boost Obama in the eyes of his supporters.
