Conference

The Livestock Conservancy - 2014 Conference   

One man's mission to preserve his heritage

Many years in the making, the Choctaw horse rescue project has been a
lifetime passion for Bryant Rickman. With technical assistance of Phil
Sponenberg and the Livestock Conservancy, the program has been a great
success for the breed but still faces challenges for the future. Learn about
what it took to secure this important population and how lessons learned
will help a new effort with the Choctaw hog.

Speakers: Bryant Rickman, Phil Sponenberg
More about Bryant: Bryant Rickman has been diligent over decades to
seek out and save the Choctaw ponies he knew from his youth and from
long years of work with Gilbert Jones. His dedication to the horses has
secured their future, and has been supplemented by work to assure that
Choctaw Hogs and local Cur dogs also have a future in both the local and
national agriculture.
More about Phil: Dr. Phil Sponenberg is the Livestock Conservancy’s
Technical Advisor and acts as lead on the organization’s rescue effort of
the Rickman herd of Spanish mustangs. He is a longtime collaborator for
the conservation of Spanish mustangs with the Rickman’s and with the
late Gilbert Jones. With the data accrued on the Rickman herd, Dr.
Sponenberg has developed a conservation breeding strategy to ensure the
genetic diversity and the long term survival of the irreplaceable genetics
represented in the horses.
