Am I on the Right Path?
by PonyUP! Kentucky blogger Kendra Loring
So much is happening all around me every day. Sometimes, I feel like my head is spinning! We have a huge string of show horses, tons of young riding horses in training, yearlings and weanlings in need of an education, and 17 broodmares in foal for 2012.
My boss sent me to Texas A & M for a short course, so I could catch up on breeding techniques and current research. It’s been 18 years since I was in a classroom, so I think it was an excellent idea. Flying over Houston, I watched the shadow of the plane dance over the clouds, surrounded by a halo of sunlight. It was a beautiful sight. I felt like it was an affirmation that I am indeed, in the right place, the correct path in my life. I had a good time in Texas; I got to meet other horse people new to the horse breeding industry.t. I learned a ton of new info to take back to our breeding program at the ranch. Texas A & M is the university where they do all kinds of equine research, so the instructors have tons of current data on all kinds of breeding questions. They were a valuable resource and they will continue to be at the other end of an email or phone call for me if I need them!
