Eric Smith on Genetics and Breeding Clinic Jan 10, 2013
As proposed at the NWFHC AGM we have planned a one day presentation by Eric Smith on Genetics and Breeding, how to understand your horses lineage, and how to develop your Breeding Goals.
How to Evaluate your mares genetics and how this impacts the breeding program for your mare.
Eric works closely with the Fenway foundation as the geneticist and consultant.
He is also a runner for the Friesian Keurings in the Midwest. Eric is an approved breeding clinician for FHANA, he is someone who has a lot to share about the breeding, characteristics, and goals of the Friesian horse. Eric recently did a webinar for FHANA on Keuring Prep and Explanations. The video is available on the FHANA website under Library.
The meeting will take place on February 9 at Dave & Cathy Petrie's home in Maple Valley. We will start the meeting @ 9.30 AM and will wrap up no later than 5 pm., a small lunch/snack will be provided. If you are in need of a hotel, the towns of Renton or Issaquah are your best choices. Dave and Cathy's place is about 20 min. from each one of them.
Eric would like for you to bring a copy of the registration paper and linear score sheet of the mare you would like to breed. He will use this in his presentation.
If you have not send in your $75.00 per person to Cathy please do so ASAP.
