Ranch ManagerLuis Camacho came to Carol Rose Quarter Horses at the young age of 15 looking for work. Luis was assigned to the breeding area of the ranch and started cleaning stalls, helping with feeding, and leading mares through the breeding barn palpation stocks. Luis showed a lot of interest in the horses and as the years passed, Luis was promoted to assisting in medicating horses, vaccinating, deworming, halter breaking foals and doing whatever needed to be done in the breeding barn. In 2012, Luis went for one week to Texas A&M University to work with Dr. Dickson Varner and Shelia Teague, to fine tune the collection of semen, as well as to refine his ability to prepare semen for insemination. Starting with the 2013 breeding season, Luis was promoted to Assistant Breeding Manager, as well as helping to prepare the horses and the facility for the upcoming 2013 Sale. Luis loves his job; he loves the horses, loves the foals and loves everything about working at Carol Rose Ranch and absolutely did not want to leave after the Dispersal Sale. In 2014 Luis became the Breeding, Stallion and Mare Manager at Carol Rose Ranch. “We could not be more proud of his knowledge, ability and work ethic,” says Carol Rose. He and his wife Elizabeth have been married five years and are the proud parents of four year old, Leonel, and three year old, Jocelyn.
