Equine FIrst Aid Class Was a Hit!


Whiskey with two bandaged legs and an eye bandage!  He was such a good sport.

Today, we hosted an Equine First Aid Class taught by Lisa Lalonde from Animal Educational Services.  The class was packed with students, information, and hands on learning!  The students asked all kinds of wonderful questions and the instructor had more information and amazing stories that we could have ever hoped for. The horses, all three of them, did great as we practiced bandaging, checking vitals, and listened to more lecture information.

 
Lola with two leg bandages and a chest bandage.  She was amazing during this entire event.



Fosse getting his first leg wrapped.  During class he certainly challenged some of the more timid students (because he loves to push buttons).  He still did great. And, with a grade 5 heart murmur, he was an excellent example of an abnormal heart.
 
 
If you missed it, we will be hosting another event this fall.  CLICK HERE to view some of the photos from the event.
