A Breeder’s Vision – Lessons from the Past in Breeding for the Future

On April 29th & 30th, Talaria Farms proudly presented another in our continuing series of seminars, “A Breeder’s Vision” (Lessons from the Past in Breeding for the Future), featuring Judith Forbis of Ansata Arabian Stud. This legendary breeder shared lessons she learned in nearly 50 years of breeding Straight Egyptian Arabians, in addition to sharing many coveted photographs of her early years in the Middle East as well as of her foundation stock that changed the course of the Straight Egyptian Horse forever.

On Sunday morning, Larry Olsen, DVM, assisted by Mike Albertini and Tom Patterson, followed Judy’s session with a very informative technical segment on breeding your mare. An absolute bounty of knowledge and wisdom was offered up the entire weekend to the delight of us all. Of course, the bounty included Jane’s and John’s usual outstanding dining experiences.

We are grateful to Judy for her generosity of personal time. For many, it will be a weekend not soon forgotten and, for the rest, likely remembered forever.
