Next Saturday the Blue Knob Farmers Market will preset a morning workshop on natural horse care.

Three local horse carers will share information about caring for the animals using natural approaches, especially with regard to living in the subtropical climate of the northern rivers.

Sallie McIntosh has had real success treating common and difficult-to-manage leg ailments using honey and bees wax. Sally will also talk about how to put together a first aid kit for horses.

Dan Smith is a specialist in equine hoof care and will talk about care of the horse’s hooves.

Ulrik Kraft will cover fencing, weeds, hoof care, dental care, pasture and general health.

Bring you questions with you and any experiences you’d like to share about caring for horses.

The talk, on Saturday April 18 from 10 am at the Workshop Space, Blue Knob Hall, is part of a series about living sustainability. The workshop is a free event but donations are graciously accepted.
