The first step in reducing the problem of homeless horses is to reduce the number of excess foals born. The Kentucky Horse Park aims to help by offering a free gelding clinic this March. Gelding operations will be performed by licensed veterinarians or vet students under veterinary supervision for the cost of a $20 registration fee.
For registration information, contact Sheila Forbes, 859-233-4305 or Sheila.Forbes@ky.gov or visit kyhorsepark.com
The gelding clinic is part of the Unwanted Horse Coalition’s Operation Gelding initiative, which helps local groups across the country to organize their own low-cost gelding clinics. For more information on the program, visit www.unwantedhorsecoalition.org
that’s a smart thing to do to reduce the amount of unwanted foals. good solution, yet another of KHP’s good ideas 🙂
