Hey, Heartland fans! I've got a few things to cover for you this week.  This weekend, on Saturday, is the Stand up to Cancer special. During this fundraising event, there will be a special segment with support from many Canadian celebrities including Heartland's Amber Marshall and Shaun Johnston.

Support Stand Up To Cancer Canada's life-saving cancer research. And watch the televised fundraising special with one goal in mind: to make every cancer patient a long-term survivor. Save the date and learn more at

You can watch it on Saturday, August 21st at 8pm ET/PT and 7pm CT on most major networks, including CBC. 

I hope you can tune in.

World Photography Day

In the world of social media, I do want to point out a few things.  First, it's World Photography Day and CBC Gem gave Heartland a nod to mark the occasion with some beautiful horse photos from past seasons of the show.  Take a look:

And if you aren't following Heartland director and editor Ken Filewych on social media, you should. You never know what little teasers might show up in his posts on Instagram.  Like this one for example: What are Jack and Tim up to in episode 1505?

In a recent post on her Instagram channel, Amber Marshall was all about some of the work that Double Dan Horsemanship provided for the Heartland season 15 premiere. 

Double Dan had nothing but good things to say about the collaboration.

"Double Dan Horsemanship recently had the privilege to work on one of the most wholesome family favorite horse TV shows in the world (literally) - Heartland for the start of their 15th Season... We cannot thank the Heartland team and Amber Marshall enough for this incredible experience."

Michelle Morgan has been super-busy lately as well.  Not only does she have a huge role on Heartland, but she also does so much more.  As many of you know, Michelle has lent Heartland her directing chops in the upcoming season. Check out these photos she shared recently from her Instagram account from her time working as a director on the show.

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing her work realized on screen when the new season comes along.  Can you believe the premiere is only about two months away?  

And finally, I wanted to share Gabriel Hogan's recent posts from his time working on the Heartland set recently.  Next to his Tacoma FD posts, could you imagine two more different characters? He looks so serious on Heartland. Or does he?  Scroll through all of his pics for some surprises. 

I particularly like the one with all of the Heartland crew crammed into the Dude Ranch dock!  What is going on there?

He's also apparently time-travelled to Heartland's distant future. Or he's discovered the answer to life, the universe and everything. Maybe a bit of both.

Well, that's all for today. Come back next week for more news and photos!
