The weather on Saturday cooperated and we had a beautiful sunny day for the Operation Gelding Clinic. ( Blogger has not been so cooperative and this post was delayed a little while ). BITS has now gelded 33 horses through our clinics.
Which means 33 horses will not be breeding and adding to the excess horse problem Considering how many horses these 33 could have helped produce if they were left as stallions, this one day clinic has made a serious dent in the horse population. We believe these clinics are the most important and long lasting change we can make to help the future of horses.
|The vets and students got right to work getting everything ready|
Three little minis came in for the clinic from Oakdale Rescue, one was
running a fever and had to skip surgery. No worries, Lori from Oakdale Rescue said he is feeling much better now.
|This little mini got gelded|
|This little mini had a high fever but did get lots of attention and vet care.|
|This little mini had fun.... until it was his turn|
|We think he was trying to make a break for it under the door|
|But look he is still smiling . The picture wasn't edited by the camera crew on CSI, the sun just happened to provide a little privacy to his private area.|
|Newlyweds Dr Jennifer Mather and her husband Jim get Chance ready|
for his gelding surgery.
Chance also had some very swollen eyes which Dr Mather flushed out.
He is a really nice looking guy and makes an even prettier gelding
