I have been attending the Horse industry breeders and owners conference on and off the last several years. Did not go last year because it is in January and often a very cold time here, the year previous it was a horrible weekend with poor roads ,cold and blowing snow. While I did get there and enjoyed it , I was quite distracted with the weather, so last year I gave it a pass.
This year I was planning to skip it as well,I got the email with the news of it , a couple times but had not paid it a lot of attention. The seminars are often interesting and enlightening, but last time I went I found it was a bit more duplication of info than I wanted . about a month ago though , I got another email update and a name caught my eye. Dr Temple Grandin !!!! I did a real live double take and yup! I read it right , she is presenting on Sunday at the conference.

Hope to see some old friends there as well. Deb and I are heading out tomorrow , so have a great weekend everyone and stay warm and SAFE
