COURT HOUSE – The Cape May County 4-H Countywide Spring Equine Clinic was held April 6-7. Dr. Tanja Hanyi and clinic volunteers went to farms and boarding stables, offering vaccinations at reduced prices to horses without the normal farm call fee.

According to a release, this year 132 horses and mules were vaccinated. The Cape May County 4-H Equine Health Clinic started over 50 years ago with two goals.

One was to inoculate as many horses as possible against infectious diseases such as Eastern Equine Encephalomyelitis and West Nile Virus and the second was to offer these vaccinations at as low a cost as possible.
