AAEP April Events
April 15 – Old Friends Vaccine Day (Lexington), Semen Collection Demonstration (April 16): LMU-CVM SCAAEP went to Lexington KY to work with Park Equine Hospital to vaccinate and deworm 103 retired racehorses at Old Friends Racehorse Retirement Farm. Some of the big names we got to work with are Silver Charm and War Emblem. We then went to the races at Keeneland racetrack. The following day the SCAAEP headed to the University of Kentucky to participate in stallion semen collection. It was a fun filled weekend!
