She manages the office of Horsemen's Laboratory as well as Westbrook Stable. Becky and Dr. Byrd met on a trail ride and have owned horses for over 42 years.
Westbrook Farms
Dr Byrd and Becky built Westbrook Stable in 1973 as a Quarter Horse breeding farm where they stood 3 stallions and breed 40-50 mares a year. They moved to Florida in 1977 and returned to Westbrook after Dr Byrd completed a veterinary residency in 1979. Dr Byrd and Becky again left Westbrook in 1980 and moved to California where Dr Byrd worked as a general equine practioneer until their return to Westbrook in 1992.
