Talking Knock,Knock!

I just joined and excited to meet you all. I work on a breeding farm.I have the pleasure of foaling out on an average of 55-78 foals a year.The farm I work for is a well known reining/breeding/training center.As oddly as it may sound I don't own a horse of my own.But,I get to handle so many.At any givin time we have around 175 horses.I do lease a reining mare from the owner.I am a Non-pro rider.I hope to learn alot from you all.I hope to beable to help if anyone has any questions on foaling or covering a mare AI ect..So Howdy to you all.

Thank you all for the welcome.I'll be glad to help out.I have been with the same farm now for 6 years.Yet every foaling season brings such joy as well as saddness when/if we lose one. It's nice to look back and see one of "My Deliveries" make it out in the show ring and win.I am always so taken by that.I'll be cruising around the out where I can.Foaling season is coming up real soon.I'll have time during my watchs to post and chat.
