discipline they favor for their future careers. With the deepest appreciation to our loyal stallion breeding donors, we are proud to offer truly fine Arabian bloodstock and equine talent.” Many top Arabian industry horsemen extol the Kellogg breeding talent. Still, the Kellogg program is also invested in community outreach—both within the University and to the outside public. “The Kellogg Ranch values tradition while striving toward a sound, secure future,” explains Jéanne. “Yes, our Arabian horses perform splendidly in the show pen and the breeding barn. At the same time, we reach out to the general public of all ages.” Jéanne specifies, “The Kellogg Ranch has taken on Wild Horse Tales, an elementary school literary program. We started with one local school this year and look forward to expanding it. The Kellogg Arabian Horse Library has the largest private collection of Arabian horse books, records and periodicals in the world, and is open for use to all. Our Sunday shows operate during the school year (October-May). This decades old tradition showcases our Arabian horses and their versatility with our students performing western, English, hunter and native costume disciplines. Our trick

horse always earns her fair share of applause too.” The Sunday shows were started by W.K. Kellogg for the public to see for themselves the beauty and talent of Kellogg Arabian horses. And academically through the Kellogg Center, Cal Poly Pomona now offers a minor in Equine Studies—emphasizing the science or business aspects of equine management and breeding for students of any major. Jéanne’s enthusiasm is clear, “Though our reputation here at the Kellogg Center serves us well, we are always seeking further innovation and improvement. We embrace the infusion of new blood our diverse group of students bring to the Center. Our staff prides itself on positive teamwork and sharing of ideas. We are blessed with the incredible knowledge of our advisory board and the generous stallion breeding donations from top Arabian breeding operations.” Jéanne concludes, “The Kellogg Arabian Horse Center’s future shines bright. I am pleased and proud to be a part of the teachings we give, while breeding some truly great Arabian bloodstock for our industry.” - visitors welcome! n
