VET & CARE DAY:


  • each year we host a day in the spring for dental work. This year we are hoping to book Grant McKinnon, an equine dentist that can help our horses with dental issues that can cause behavioral problems. Grant provides relief for bite and incisor problems like overbites, underbites, diagonal bites, abnormal wear patterns, waves, point shears etc. There is so much more than just floating teeth.
  • ​If you are interested in booking a spot, please contact Gina at slickforkranch@sasktel.net or 306-835-2277
