If you are not familiar with the Australian Brumby Research Unit and what it means to natural hoof care now is your chance to learn all about it. The unit was established with the aim of investigating the feral horse and applying this research to improve the foot health of the domestic horse. The project is a part of the Australian Equine Laminitis Research Unit and headed by world renowned equine foot researcher, Professor Chris Pollitt BVSc PhD and coordinated by his PhD student Brian Hampson.
All are welcome to attend and monies generated by the event will be donated back to this amazing research that is important to the health of all our horses.
I will be attending and will be displaying EasyCare's lineup of protective horse boots and natural hoof care products and I look forward to seeing everyone there!
