For the benefit of Kentucky's horses,
free gelding surgeries will be offered at the Kentucky Horse Park on Saturday, March 10, 2012.
This free clinic is being provided by the Kentucky Horse Park in partnership with the Kentucky Horse Council's Save Our Horses fund and the American Horse Council's Unwanted Horse Coalition.
The free gelding surgeries are open to any equine owner who is financially unable to afford the surgeries. Castrations will be performed by a veterinarian or a veterinary student under close supervision by a licensed veterinarian. Stallions must be halter broke, in good health, with two descended testicles and be at least four months of age, with current Coggins and health certificate.
Applications are now being accepted. A $20 registration fee will be charged per horse. Surgeries by appointment only.
