Dr. Marilyn McMorran, DVM, will discuss health care and preventative measures owners can take to keep horses sound. She will also accept questions at [email protected] and share the answers with those attending the clinic.

A farrier will also be present to talk about why it is important to shoe horses and some of the reasons for using different types.
