Orange Goat Club and Bit-n-Bridle Club Hold Joint Meeting with Veterinarian

By Eryn Connell, Orange 4-H Goat Club
Saturday, April 13, the Orange County Goat Club and the Bit-n-Bridle Horse Club met for a joint meeting. Dr. Joan Prasse was our guest speaker and provided lots of great info on basic handling and taking vitals on horses and goats. We all got to take turns checking vitals on horses and learning about ornery goats! The big word we learned for the day was " borborygmus!" Bet you can't guess what that means! Yep, gut noises!

This was a great learning experience and "hopefully" our animals will be all the safer for it!
