A very successful first castration clinic for 2018 took place on Wednesday 4th April at the South of England showground in Ardingly where volunteers castrated 32 horses. 

Previously delayed by snow in February, the weather forecast was much kinder this time. Although another beast was forecast the option of working under cover gave security of getting through the large number of horses booked in for the day.

We had 32 castrations which included a 10 year old coloured stallion and a number of shetland ponies.

In total 65 horses/ponies attended which were wormed as needed, microchipped and passported. Some even received dental treatment.

A huge thank you all the BEVA Trust volunteers who gave up their time to support the day:
