Whoa Podcast About Horses Horsemanship

Horse Health with Dr. Tolley

Horse Health with Dr. TolleyOwning a horse is a great experience.  The beauty and majesty of a healthy horse is a great to behold.  But how do maintain horse health?  As a new horse owner what costs are associated with horse health?  We wanted to answer these questions and more.  We needed a reliable source of information and we enlisted the help of our local expert on horse health, our veterinarian Dr. John Tolley.  Dr. Tolley is a partner at Bakersfield large Animal veterinary Hospital.  He is a very experienced veterinarian and a horse owner.  We talk about horse feed requirements.  We talk about supplementation.  We talk about vaccinations and worming protocols.  We talk about dentistry.  Just about everything concerning horse health is covered in a general conversation.

Dr. Tolley says he will come back and share more thoughts on horse health.  If you have a topic you would like to see us cover, please shoot me an email.

 About Us

Welcome to the Whoa Podcast about Horses and Horsemanship.   I am your host  John Harrer.  Along with my wife, Ranae, each week on the show we talk about some aspect of owning a horse.  It could be feeding or supplementation.  It could be bits and bridles, tack, or cowboy boots.  We cover training problems, or competing in shows.  We talk to farriers and horse chiropractors.  We talk about movies, books and magazine articles.  And, we travel to places we think you would like to take your horse.   That’s what the Whoa Podcast is all about.
