It's the most important meeting you’ll have all week.

If you’re like the rest of us, you’re probably spending a lot of time at home right now.

That time now spent in our living-room-turned-office has probably come with a sudden surge in the number of video calls — especially on Zoom. And while it’s fun to change your zoom background to make it seem like you're somewhere else, like a beautiful hotel for example, there’s also a chance that your calls are getting a little stale.

Until now.

Thanks to the Lexington, Kentucky Convention and Visitors Bureau (VisitLEX) and Horse Country, you can now pencil in a conference call with a real-life horse. On Thursday, April 9, 100 lucky people will have the chance to join a zoom conference with a horse at Mill Ridge Farm, a working horse farm in Kentucky. It’s the perfect opportunity to get on a call that’s actually important — all without having to listen to someone drone on about something that could’ve been sent in an email.

The call, which starts at 1 p.m. Eastern, is “first come, first zoom,” according to a statement.

If you’re not one of the lucky 100, it’s not too late to become a virtual horse whisper as Horse Country has a handful of other online experiences to join in on including live farm visits on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays to see a horse snack on carrots at Mill Ridge Farm, and even meeting some mamas and their foals at Kentucky’s Stonestreet Farm.

But if you are stuck in video meetings all day, VisitLEX still wants you to take a trip to the Bluegrass State by downloading one of these Kentucky-inspired Zoom backgrounds that will make you feel like you’re on a farm, a Bourbon distillery, or just chillin’ with some hilarious horses.

To join the call visit this Zoom link at 1 p.m. Eastern on April 9 and keep the information below handy for access.

If you want even more zoom time with animals, Airbnb just launched online experiences, including one virtual trip to hang with goats on a farm in Upstate New York.
