John Jessie is enjoying the warm, dry Kentucky weather.
Jessie is spending the summer back home in Campbellsville. But for the past six months, he has been in Ireland as part of the Irish National Stud horse program. There, he and 26 other students from around the world got an inside look at the breeding of thoroughbreds.
"You hear about Ireland getting a lot of rain and being damp," Jessie said. "It was definitely that."
But it was also a beautiful country, Jessie said, with its lush green countryside.
