New to the farm in 2005, is the Equine Rehabilitation Wing. Our Emergency Veterinary Station is a full equine veterinary treatment facility. This specially designed room also doubles as a research library with an extensive collection of health related equine videos, poster-size illustration charts and veterinary books. Vintage turn-of-the-century veterinary instruments, books, and memorabilia, adorns the walls, adding character and colour to this practical and educational centre. In addition, the farm has access to 24 hour on-call emergency veterinary care. The farm has recently acquired a variable speed treadmill for conditioning of muscles and tendons. This new tool will add to a more speedy recovery and conditioning of horses. If you are in need, feel free to contact us for assistance.
