Finally heard back from the show

I just got an email letting me know I didn't make it on the show. I'm a little bummed out about it, but a little relieved at the same time. It would have been right in the middle of the summer, making it harder to find a job until classes start up again. On the positive side of things, they were really sweet about it. Instead of sending out a form rejection letter, they wrote a letter individually to each person, and mentioned keeping my application on file in case there's a second season (which I'm sure they told everybody, but whatever.)

I also realized I forgot to mention this week's case. We're learning about a respiratory disease that affects up to 90% of thoroughbreds. It's kind of interesting how breeders can be like "my horse is bleeding into its trachea every time it runs, but it runs fast, so let's breed it!" Horse people are weird, but I guess no weirder than dog people who think it's acceptable to breed dysplasic German Shepherds, or perpetuate a breed like bulldogs that can't even give birth without a C-section.

  1. I am sad neither of us made the show, but I do believe everything happens for a reason! For instance, I got to meet you!

    I look forward to following along with your learning process, I am sure I will learn a thing or two along with you.

    I also hope you easily find a job. I will be waiting to hear!
