Howdy from ice cold frosty Florida!
So I was being silly....
In all reality I'm half in Canada (northern Alberta where is is frosty and ice cold 98% of the year) and half in Florida with a more permanent note on Florida. I breed, show, and train APHA horses with the occasional QH and Appaloosa thrown in for fun and good measure. I secretly have a thing for Warmbloods and TBs as well though. I can't deny a pretty face regardless of what breed it is though.
I'm a passionate environmental activist who's been with the group infamously (if your a Japanese whaler) and honorably known as the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, or lovingly referred to as "Neptune's Navy" since 2001. I'm also a major anti-slaughter and equine rights advocate and again am anti-euthanasia of the world's dogs and cats. I completely agree with restricted breeding by licensed stock and licensed breeders only. IE: Don't breed just to breed. Breed to better the breed and don't over breed. That being said I'd personally rather buy a prospect then breed for one... I do plan on breeding one of my mares next year if all goes well. We're currently tossed up between that and aiming for the APHA world show with her since she's awesome. I'm also a newly found health nut both in animal and human nutrition and on the battle to shed unhealthy weight.
Other then that I'm an artist both graphic and traditional, I love long walks on the beach, pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain ;)
