Dr. Foust comes to us as a 2016 graduate of Kansas State University.  During his internship at Rocky Mountain Equine Hospital in Sheridan, Wyoming he took a special interest in equine lameness and reproduction. His enthusiasm and willingness to learn, help, and teach; along with his can-do attitude have made him an amazing asset to our team.  We have truly enjoyed watching him grow and expand our equine practice. In his free time, you'll find him outdoors hunting, fishing, or going on a ride with his horse, Max.
