The beautiful country of Wales can sometimes feel a little overlooked (not by those of us who live here of course). Events for professionals usually take place over the border and, as Wales isn’t known for its easy roads, it can be a monumental task to attend, particularly for those on the west coast.
So we’re doing an event on 12 October for equine professionals in Wales - of course it is open to professionals outside Wales too ...although on this occasion you’ve got to come to us!
Donkeys are so different to horses, so that will be the take home message from the event. It is open to vets, farriers, apprentices, equine students and equine welfare professionals.
We will have our Welfare Vet, Anna Harrison, giving an informative session in the morning including the main differences between horses and donkeys from a veterinary and management perspective, common diseases and a Q&A session. The afternoon includes a session with farrier, Colin Goldsworthy on all things hooves, including how to trim normal and overgrown hooves, and some common conditions of the donkey foot.
If you are not an equine professional but would love to know more about donkeys then why not book on to one of our free training courses.
