The world, it is a changing.
The new reality for many is protocols for animals who will be in contact with humans have changed. Fall fairs, exhibitions, they have all been notified of the changes. You will notice when you attend your favourite fair or festival, you will be asked NOT to touch certain animals. These are bio-security measures to maintain the integrity of the food chain.
It doesn’t change too much for us, our animals are vaccinated and Coggins tested. We have a Bio-Security Policy in effect.
However it is important that you, as a patron, a participant understand and ask to see the documentation of any animals you interact with.
