Michael Wildenstein All-Day Lecture in Vermont on Saturday, March 28

The Vermont Farriers Association invites you to an all-day lecture with farrier educator Michael Wildenstein, CJF, FWCF (Hons) on Saturday, March 28 in the Old Chapel at Castleton State College in Castleton, Vermont.

Mike will speak on the subject of "Why Do We Shoe Horses Differently?", addressing the hoofcare needs of different sizes and breeds of horses and the jobs/sports they do with the conformations and health issues they have.

Here's a chance to be indoors and warm, for a change--since it is still pretty wintery in Vermont--and learn from one of the world's foremost educators.  The cost for this event is very reasonable.
