The Cannon County Walking Horse Association is sponsoring Horse Night tonight for Farm School. The event is still scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Woodbury Lions Club.
CCWHA invites all those interested to attend and support our night of farm school.
January was a busy month for the UT Extension office with an assortment of activities and meetings. Attendance has been great for the Farm Family School meetings.
Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule and being a part of the University of Tennessee Extension activities. As a reminder, the Farm Family School along with all activities of the Cannon County Extension is open to the public. Please accept this invitation to be a part of any activity which you have an interest.
Horse Night is scheduled for February 10. It will feature Mark S Wooten, D.V.M. from Nolensville, Animal Hospital. Dr. Mark Wooten graduated from the University Of Tennessee College Of Veterinary Medicine in 1982.
After spending a year in private practice in Milan, TN he joined Castleton Farm of Ohio as resident Veterinarian for six years before leaving to join Nolensville Veterinary Hospital to develop the equine practice.
After his first year, the equine surgical facility was constructed allowing for more advanced care in medicine as well as surgery including the ability to perform colic surgeries.
