Survey about influential Appaloosa stallions

DunBelow you will find a brief introduction and link for a survey regarding Appaloosa stallions throughout the history of the breed. Your participation in the survey supports an active youth member who has developed her graduate thesis around the Appaloosa breed. The ApHC is proud to support its youth membership and we are asking you to as well by participating in the following survey:

I’m Brandy Kines and am writing to solicit your help in the research process of my thesis. I am a long-time member of the Appaloosa Horse Club and have been showing Appaloosas since I was five. Currently I am pursuing a master’s degree in Agricultural Communications at Texas A&M University.

For my thesis, I am chronicling the stallions that have influenced the Appaloosa breed and industry since the 1960s. I have read the book Spotted Pride and it has influenced me to pursue this as a thesis topic.
I am contacting individuals who are active participants in the industry. If you agree to help, you will be asked to complete an online survey to identify the stallions you believe should be included in the thesis, which should take a maximum of 15 minutes.

After the survey, if you have had personal involvement (breeder, trainer, exhibitor, etc) with one of the stallions identified for the study, you may be asked to participate in an interview about the stallion. The interview will take no longer than an hour.

I appreciate your taking the time to consider helping me with this undertaking. If you are interested in participating, please use the following link to access the survey.
