Student Ride Along: Carl Magnusson

Meet Carl Magnusson – he’s a first year veterinary student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and he’ll be shadowing with Dr. Howard Ketover this week.
MagnussonPhotoHometown: Hudson, WI
Education: I have a B.S. Mechanical Engineering, and am currently a first year veterinary medical student at UW-Madison
Favorite summer activity in Madison: Canoeing and fishing Madison’s lakes
My life with horses: My father had a few horses, and boarded several more, at his veterinary clinic, so I cleaned a lot of stalls growing up. I have always enjoyed working with horses, in the saddle or on the ground. My riding experience has consisted primarily of western style trail riding; a means of living out part of the boyhood cowboy dream that was built around Lucky Luke (a French cowboy comic book series) and spaghetti western films.
