Phoebe the Mare works in the public relations department here at the Teaching Animal Unit as the spokes-mare for the TAU Teaching Herd. She is always delighted to escort visitors on a tour of the pastures, greeting every visitor with a smile and her undivided attention. She tries to enliven even the most difficult Friday lab with her bubbly personality and her exuberant desire to assist with demonstrations and lectures, often by holding implements or making funny faces in the background. A true extrovert, she is at her best when surrounded by students! On a personal note, her current favorite song is “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, though she typically prefers the country station playing in the horse barn. Congratulations to this week’s TAU Animal of the Week!
