Free horse health fair in Ashland

 

 

 

The Oregon Hay Bank and Equamore Foundation are sponsoring a free horse health fare from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on April 9 at Eden Farm, located at 4723 Highway 62 in Ashland

 

 

 Horse owners facing financial hardship are invited to participate in the free clinic which will feature veterinary assessments, de-wormer, hoof care, equine chiropractic, and an equine nutrition specialist, all at little or no cost to qualifying participants.

Vaccinations may be offered by participating veterinarians who are drastically discounting their time as an acknowledgment of the hardship some horse owners are facing in providing for their animals during challenging economic conditions.

 

Horses will visit a series of “stations” in the professional. After finishing at each station, the horse will progress to the next, until the animal has visited all the stations its owner wishes.

Owners wishing to participate should call for an appointment. Appointments will be first come, first served, and scheduled in thirty minute increments. Limit two horses per owner. NO DROP INS ACCEPTED.

Oregon Hay Bank Executive Director, Julie Fritz, stated that this is the fourth such event held in Oregon by various equine welfare organizations.

“Darla Clark of Strawberry Mountain Mustangs held a similar event in Sutherlin last May and cosponsored one again in December of 2010, and the Oregon Horse Welfare Council hosted one in Albany in to get their animals the care they needed, and at little to no cost. We knew that there was a real need for another event in the forward to providing services to more horses and the people who care for them.”
