Horse Workshop a Big Hit With Horse Owners
Alamance County Cooperative Extension’s Livestock Agent, Lauren Langley partnered with Eagle Bear Farm Owners, Lauren Kahn and Michael Varnum to host a Horse Owner Workshop on May 22, 2018 in Graham, NC. Twenty-two participants attended the workshop from Alamance and surrounding counties. Participants learned how to evaluate a pasture, basic pasture management principles, and how to construct an equine dry lot. Establishing a dry lot area where horses can be managed off of a pasture is key to a productive and healthy pasture. The evening came to a close with a natural horsemanship demonstration presented by Lauren Kahn and Michael Varnum. Participant comments included, “I am a new farm owner, this was very helpful” and “This was wonderful and I’m thankful to have been part of it”.
