How do you explain yourself in a few paragraphs? What makes you unique from the other hundreds of thousands of bloggers/farm owners/doctoral students?
I get asked these questions all of the time, as if the unique aspects of my life are what will either make me, or break me. So here goes:
I grew up in Meadville, Pennsylvania, and was a member of every equine related club I could possibly find – USPC, 4-H, AQHA, USDF, USCTA (now USEA for all of you young bucks)…EVERYTHING.
I went to St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY for four glorious years, and finished with a degree in Biology, with a minor in Creative Writing (yup, thats actually a possibility in a liberal arts school).
My family is my life, but we are unfortunately missing our leader. For years now, we have attempted to rebuild the force that is The Fedorka Family. We are almost there.
I moved to Lexington, KY to follow a boy. A boy. I found the thoroughbred industry, dumped the boy, and have never looked back. I worked for TB breeding farms, eventually moving to manager, and had an amazing ride with them.
I was convinced to use my science degree for good and went back to school to get my doctorate in, what else, equine reproduction. When I’m not studying inflammation of the uterus, I am riding my ponies. MakAttack is my main squeeze, Frank the Tank is my heart horse, and then there is always a “project pony” on the side. You will hear many stories about their adventures.
…So, in just a short period of time, you will have to call me Dr. Yankee in Paris in the comments.
I hope you enjoy!
