Lazy E Ranch
The Lazy E Ranch in Guthrie, Oklahoma is currently accepting applications for the upcoming 2014 internship seasons. Our internship program has provided opportunities for many college students all over the United States throughout the past decade, and continually welcomes prospective interest for future positions. We are proud of the fact that our program has been prominently recognized in the Quarter Racing Journal and other major publications on several occasions.
Our Breeding/Foaling Intel'l1ship begins in late December and extends through May. During this time frame, we will utilize interns throughout all segments of ranch operations. In 2014, the Lazy E will stand 14 racing Quarter Horse stallions. Utilizing all artificial insemination, the past several years we have bred nearly 1,200 mares, foaled an average of 150 mares, and have performed 275 embryo flushes on-site. All interns will be an integral part of these daily activities on this large-scale commercial operation. These reproductive numbers alone make us one of the largest horse farms in the United States.
Our Sales Prep Intel'l1ship is geared more toward the summer schedule, beginning in May and extending into August/October. The ranch annually preps over 350 yearlings and another 300+ horses of various ages for public auction throughout the United States. We are consistently the leading consignor at major racing Quarter Horse sales. This internship offers a very hands-on horsemanship experience and all interns again are an integral part of the daily activities.
Though we advertise individual internship time frames, we also consider one-year internship commitments. Interns, through such commitments, have the unique opportunity to get a much better level of understanding of what it is or takes to make the Lazy E one of the leading commercial horse facilities in the United States in any discipline.
At Lazy E, we feel we have an aggressive, hands-on internship program that subjects interns to the actual day-to-day regimen of a large, commercial equine facility. We try to provide a realistic experience that allows interns to be part of a successful commercial facility. Additionally, we attempt to discuss and review routinely the various topics to which the students are exposed on a daily basis. This includes herd health, vaccinations, reproductive theory, nutrition, farrier work, exercise physiology, and general horsemanship practice, etc. Housing and a weekly stipend are provided for all interns.
