This wiki was created to allow Kentucky County Extension Agents, Extension Specialists, and the Equine Extension Agent Workgroup to post and share documents such as PowerPoint Presentations, fact sheets, minutes, flyers, lesson plans and other items related to Equine Extension Programming.

The wiki requires login with your active directory username (don't use the ad/ prefix) and password, so this is relatively secure. Only UK College of Agriculture employees have access to this site.

To insert a document to share with others simply go to the appropriate wiki page, click on the pencil icon (one of the three on the top right, this lets you edit the page) and then click on the paper clip in the expanded toolbar. You will be able to locate the file on your computer and upload it (attach) to the wiki to share with others.

You can view a document by clicking on the eye icon, or download the document by clicking on the arrow icon. To return to this page simply click on the Cooperative Extension Serive Equine Wiki label at the top of the page.

Please feel free to let me know what you think about this site or if you have any questions. I think this may be very useful for to us in sharing information. But there will probably be some learning involved by all of us in using this technology.

If you have questions, please contact me.

Opening statement (on home page):

This web site was developed by the Agents' Working Group associated with the Equine Initiative in the College of Agriculture at the University of Kentucky. Agents, with assistance from Equine Specialist, Bob Coleman and Fernanda Camargo and administrative support from Charlene Jacobs and Gary Palmer, have linked to many resources that they feel could be of service to horse owners in Kentucky many of which originate here at the University of Kentucky. We have tried to make sure that all links are to sites with the highest of integrity. However, we are not responsibile for information that does not originate at the University of Kentucky.
