By Maggi Painter

 

            Lewisburg. Tenn. – The Breeders Committee lead by Kathy Zeis held a sub-committee meeting on Thursday November 29. 2007 at 6:00 pm at the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeder Association Headquarters in Lewisburg, Tenn. Zeis had catered Italian dinner to thank all of her committee members for all they have done help her in the past years. An informal discussion was held to decide which sub-committee’s to go forward with next year. The meeting ended around 8:30 in preparation for the next morning annual meetings.

            Kathy Zeis called the meeting to order at 8:08 am on November 30, 2007.  Mrs. Zeis updated the members on what committees they decided to go forward with next year.

            The Communications committees were the first to be discussed. It was decided to keep this going to help improve communications with the breed.  Mrs. Zeis believes we need to be proud of our horse and educate people about our breed.

            It was decided to go ahead with the Lifetime Breeders award to someone that has had a past involvement or a present and future impact. There was discussion about the possibly of adding a Lifetime Breeders award at their Annual Banquet. Next the discussion led to IPEDS. The committee was told that new software has been bought that is more users friendly.

            The color review committee, which is about continuing to educate how to register and identify the color of a foal and the importance of doing it correctly, and the simplification of registration procedures committee was also agreed to go forward with next year.

            The committees that were decided to drop for the time being was the study of hold over colts registration date, the Go program, which actually given to the marketing committee. The Go program started to give more recognition to geldings. There were 14 people receiving money this year from the program. The DNA committee, there are two many problems at this time to keep this committee going, and the memorial burial site committee, there is not enough money in the budget at this time.

            Although they decided to drop a few committees, they added a Breeding Standard committee, to help educate people on the proper confirmation of a Tennessee Walking Horse.
