Rocky Bay Equine Newsletter, July 2016
We'd like to acknowledge a firecracker
employee of the month....

On our RBE website it says that this person has been “herding cats since 1824, so she knows just how to get things done.”  Well that’s just silly, Dr. Weeks wasn’t even in practice until 1890, but that cat thing? well, you decide….  Here’s a “day in the life” look at our mystery person, see if you can figure out who it is through this photo essay. 

Through it all this person perseveres…  keeping us all on track, putting the “rock" in Rocky Bay!  Yes, indeed it’s the one and only Karol Nayer, the best darn cat herder and chaos coordinator around and our employee of the month.
Please join Lottie in thanking her for all her hard work, we all appreciate how difficult cat herding can be, cheers to you Karol!

Excellent horse care & management requires mastery of the basics of equine health.  You have the potential to know your horse better than any one else and to be his/her best advocate.  Turn that potential into reality in this clinic by learning and applying the basics of horse health care practices.  

In this 3 hour, "hands on" clinic we'll cover the physical examination; what makes up a comprehensive evaluation and how to perform it on a live horse.  Among other things, you'll learn how to use a stethoscope, take a rectal temperature and evaluate intestinal motility.   We'll send you home with a check list of what is considered normal for each system we examine.   We'll go over basic emergency protocols, how to best prepare for the most common emergencies and what to do before the vet gets there.
