  • Draft Horses Working In the Field
    true
    Grab the old folks and the kids. There is something happening in west central Alberta this weekend that they all will enjoy. Wild Rose Draft Horse Field & Pioneer Days on June 1 & 2 at Double Tree Village Museum. Gates open at 9 AM. It is 2 whole days of fun with something for everyone. I’m going to start right off with my favorite part. It is the Draft Horses working in the field. Few people remember when that was “how it was done”. The turning point – when the amount of tractor power overtook the amount of horse power on American farms – was 1945. Jobs for draft horses were pretty scarce after that. The draft horses at the Double Tree Museum give all those youngsters under 75 a chance to see horses working in the field. Actually putting in a crop. In a beautiful setting which includes… Read more »
  • A case of Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) has been detected in Red Deer County.
    true
    A case of Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) has been detected by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in Red Deer County. About equine infectious anemia (EIA) In Canada, EIA is a federally reportable disease, which means that producers or veterinarians must notify the CFIA of all suspected or confirmed cases. There is no human health risk with EIA. The disease affects horses and other members of the equine family, such as donkeys and mules, and it is potentially fatal. The EIA virus is most commonly transmitted on the mouthparts of horse flies and deer flies. It can also be transmitted by needles, syringes or surgical instruments, or through the semen of an infected stallion. Foals can be infected in utero, and they are usually aborted or die within two months of birth. There is no cure or available vaccine for EIA. Read more »
