Clinic offers free gelding service

WEST TOWNSHEND — Gerda’s Equine Rescue will host a free gelding clinic for owners who might not otherwise be able to afford the procedure.
The clinic will be held at the rescue on Sept 8. Vt./N.Y. Veterinary Clinic (based in Dummerston, Vt.) and Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University students and veterinarians have all graciously volunteered their time and expertise to perform the gelding and microchipping. Patterson Veterinary has agreed to donate all of the medication needed for the geldings, which added to the collaboration making this service available to horses and their owners in our community in  need.
Pre-registration is required. GER also has a shipping scholarship fund available for horse owners who need additional assistance getting their stallions to the free gelding clinic. There are still two spots available.
Funding for the clinic is provided in part by the Unwanted Horse Coalition’s Operation Gelding program. The program was developed based on a philosophy that the castration of a stallion will help prevent accidental or over breeding, thereby reducing the number of unwanted horses being born. Castration also produces calmer horses that are more rideable, trainable, and saleable, possibly enabling them to have multiple careers.
