WSU Snohomish Extension Farmer-to-Farmer Series Goes to Farrier School

EVERETT, Wash. – The Washington State University Snohomish County Extension farmer-to-farmer tour series goes to farrier school with a visit to Mission Farrier School near Snohomish.

Participants will learn to view horses from the farrier’s point of view, and how the school’s students learn to evaluate each horse’s needs. Each horse is then shod taking into account whether it is to be ridden on a trail or in a ring, or used in field and farm work. Mission School teaches a process of individualized evaluation and the use of the latest technologies.

The tour will be held on Wednesday, June 25, beginning at 10:30 am at Mission Farrier School located at 17028 Trombley Road near Snohomish. Driving directions can be found here. Farmer-to-farmer tours generally last two to three hours.
