Visit from the Horse Doctor & Shoer     

Saturday, March 13 | 10:00–4:00 p.m.

Shots, worming medicine, dental exams, and hoof trimming are in store for Howell Farm’s six workhorses when the veterinarian and dentist come for their spring visit. Join them in the barns where they will be at work all day ensuring that horses, sheep, chickens, and farm cat Bushy are fit and ready for spring. Visitors can listen to a horse’s heart through a stethoscope, watch an equine dentist at work, and learn about old and new veterinary instruments and techniques. The farrier will be shoeing, and the blacksmith working in the forge.

**Please note that all 2021 Saturday programs will be modified to encourage social distancing and reflect current State guidelines for public events. Visitors are required to carry masks at all times, and wear them when social distancing isn't possible. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you soon!
