The summer of 2006 was a huge success with
Rafael, Marianna, & Fernando from Brazil, all veterinary
students, Kat and Karlien, vet students from Scotland.
Caitlin, who was here the summer of 2004, was in town
this summer working at a local veterinary clinic and
came out to visit a few times. While Rafael was
here, not only did he participate in ranch activities,
he attended Montana Mule Days, Miles City Bucking Horse
Sale, Steve Edward’s Mule Clinic, and a Buck Brannamon
Clinic. He is looking forward to returning to Brazil
with his new experiences in starting colts and
practicing there. He does hope to return to go to
shoeing school at Montana State University next year.
His English has improved immensely during his stay as he
arrived not knowing any English at all.
The students all experienced artificially inseminating
mares, seeing many ultrasounds, castrating colts,
floating teeth, and a local cattle drive. Additionally,
they all had a turn at learning to trim feet, not to
mention the usual sightseeing including the Livingston
Rodeo and Yellowstone National Park.
This summer we also had Rafael’s and Fernando’s fathers
visit us from Brazil and throughout the summer had many
Brazilian Barbecues. Although language was a barrier we
didn’t lack in having fun together!
