A native of Kentucky, Dr. Nathaniel Newton attended Eastern Kentucky University, where he received his Bachelor’s of Science in Animal Science and Biology. He then attended Auburn University, where he obtained his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2008.
A lifelong horseman, Dr. Newton’s interest in breeding Arabian show horses as a teenager encouraged his interest in equine reproduction.
During veterinary school, he traveled around the United States, working at predominantly equine reproductive clinics in California, Florida and Virginia. These experiences allowed him to gain valuable knowledge in techniques and procedures related to reproduction.
Dr. Newton has worked in the Lexington area since graduating from veterinary school in 2008, concentrating his efforts on equine reproduction and ambulatory care.
Dr. Newton travels worldwide and consults with equine breeders in Australia, Sweden, The Netherlands and the Middle East. He has made three trips to Australia for the Southern Hemisphere breeding season to keep his skills sharp.
Dr. Newton manages nearly 500 broodmares and their foals, with daily visits to each of his breeding farms. His favorite part about his job is building relationships with his clients and seeing the success of their horses.
Dr. Newton has enjoyed watching many of the foals he welcomed into the world achieve great success in the racing industry, including the Standardbred Stallion, Trixton, winning the Hambeltonian, and the thoroughbred stallion, Mr. Z, competing in the Kentucky Derby.
In his free time, Dr. Newton enjoys his Arabian horses and traveling.
