I hope you’ve been enjoying the virtual horse management seminar! (Check out my last blog post to hear all about it, there’s still one more session next week!) And now, I’ve got a special announcement about an upcoming opportunity to do some hands-on learning. Want to get up close and personal with some of the Rutgers farm animals? Be sure to attend our Junior Animal Science Symposium on March 23rd! I love that Rutgers hosts this event every year. It’s so fun seeing how engaged everyone is and how excited y’all are to learn about our animals.

I hope y’all got a chance to drop in this past Saturday and check out the in-person Horse Management Seminar! There was such a variety in the presentations, I don’t think I could pick a favorite. Even if you didn’t, we still have something lined up for everyone to enjoy. Like I mentioned in my last blog, we are having a virtual Seminar too! This is especially awesome because we are hosting different presenters who are happy to share even more expert knowledge.

It’s time for our first event of the year: the Horse Management Seminar! As you might remember, we went virtual for the past few years. This time, we have something a bit more special. We’ll have online and in-person options! And do you want to know what the best part is? You can even attend both events to learn even more!

What if you and all of your friends had the same exact birthday? I think that’d be pretty fun! You could all have one really big birthday party to celebrate, and everyone could exchange presents at the same time. Well, we horses are in luck! Some of us get to celebrate a “universal birthday.”

First of all, happy holidays! Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season, and maybe y’all got a chance to make some of those fun crafts we showed in my last blog. One of my favorite things about this season is the new year. I get to have a fresh start on some new endeavors and work on finishing up some old ones. That reminds me, be sure to write to me if you have any ideas about some topics you want to learn more about! I’d love to hear some of your suggestions.

Hope y’all are keeping warm this holiday season! It’s getting quite chilly here on campus, but I’m glad I’ve got a nice fluffy coat to keep me toasty. This year, my friends at the Equine Science Center decided to get creative (and crafty!) with some fun holiday activities. We all had lots of fun making some fun decorations, and the best part is that you can join in too! Check out our video and follow along:

Hope y’all had a good Thanksgiving! We’re sticking with the history theme this week, but we’re going back a lot further than football! One of our friends at the Equine Science Center found a cool exhibit at the Harvard Museum of Natural History that showcased the evolution of horses. Let’s see what she learned!

It’s certainly getting a bit chilly down here on the farm! I love watching the leaves change color. This also means that a certain holiday is right around the corner: Thanksgiving! Lots of things come to mind when I think about the holiday. Of course there’s good food, spending time with those you care about, and being thankful, but I also think of football.

I can’t believe it’s already November! I hope y’all know what that means: it’s time for the annual Rutgers Equine Science Center Evening of Science and Celebration! Everyone is invited to join us at my favorite event of the year. Make some room in your calendar on Thursday, November 9th from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. You can register for the event by going to https://go.rutgers.edu/Evening2023.

Looks like Halloween is just around the corner! Good thing that involves one of my favorite things: treats! (And carving pumpkins with my friends at the Equine Science Center, of course.) Did you know that even though you can’t share your candy with your hooved friends, there’s plenty of sweet treats for us too? Let’s take a look at a few of them.
