Color Genetics 101 (Part 1)

BASE COATS and MODIFIERS I wrote this page a long time ago and thought I would share it with you. Most of you in the Horse World will be familiar with this information already, but it’s still a good primer. I will expand on it later in future posts.

Redirect your Page

This post was inspired by an Equine Rescue that had their loooooong PayPal Donation link in a Facebook Post. I thought to myself, that would look so much better if it were a redirect link. What is a Redirect? It’s a page that goes to another page. Let me give you an example. if you… Continue Reading

I’m an Administrative Specialist

I’ve changed my other business name to Cheryl Harless Administrative Services. It was Cheryl Harless Administrative Consulting Services. Too many people were confused by the word Consulting; and frankly, it’s a term I was never comfortable using. I used it to conform to a specific group that choose the term Consultant over Specialist. I’m no longer… Continue Reading
