Visit from the Horse Doctor & Shoer     

Saturday, March 9 | 10:00–4:00

Children's Craft: Horseshoe Dreamcatcher (11:00–3:00)

Shots, worming medicine, dental exams, and hoof trimming are in store for Howell Farm’s seven workhorses when the veterinarian and dentist come for their spring visit. Join them in the barn, where they will be at work all day ensuring that horses, sheep, chickens, and farm cat Bushy are fit and ready for spring. Visitors can listen to a horse’s heart through a stethoscope, watch an equine dentist at work, and learn about old and new veterinary instruments and techniques. The farrier will be shoeing, and the blacksmith working in the forge.

Howell Farm is owned by the County of Mercer and operated by the Mercer County Park Commission
