I’m in Springfield today, at Missouri State (go Bears!) with my ALOT class. I’ve posted pictures of our D.C. advocating experience, showed our Monsanto tour, and told you about ethanol. In out quest to learn about all aspects of ag I’m currently sitting on bleachers watching students demonstrate horse techniques!
Missouri State is doing interesting work because many people, not just those in agriculture, love horses. Being around these amazing animals is a great way to bridge the gap for college students- teaching them the hard work involved in the care of any animal.
But being here is giving me ideas. I wonder if a horse would be happy in my goat pen…
Horses are amazing workers and great pets if you get the right one. I miss my horse. I road for a long time, but don’t have a horse right now. Maybe some day, but the vet bills are a major consideration 😦 Looks like your having a good trip. Enjoy! 🙂
