Farriers And Veterinarians Collaborate At Blue Ridge Equine Clinic

Blue Ridge Equine Clinic hosted a great turnout of 25 farriers on March 19. The farrier/veterinarian discussion went on for 2 hours and touched on improving communication and understanding. It was a diverse group of farriers from the greater Charlottesville area, the Valley, and Hanover County. The subject for the evening was low palmar angles and the management of lameness associated with this finding. A number of cases were presented and everyone had an opportunity to express their ideas. The farriers asked that we have more of these and we welcome input as to subjects to cover. We plan to hold another in May or June. Farriers and veterinarians, please call if you’d like us to let you know about the next event.
