Cape May Court House – The Cape May County 4-H Countywide Spring Equine Clinic brought life-saving vaccines to 94 horses in our county on April 13 and April 14, 2023. The Rutgers Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development Program partners with Dr. Tanja Hanyi to offer the equine clinic at discounted vaccine prices for all horse and pony owners in Cape May County. On these two days, Dr. Hanyi and clinic volunteers went to farms and boarding stables in Cape May County, offering vaccinations at reduced prices to horses without the normal farm call fee.
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 deadly equine diseases. The second goal was to offer these vaccinations at as low a cost as possible to the horse owners of Cape May County. These two goals remain the same today. The clinic is coordinated by long-time 4-H volunteer Nancy Rothenbiller. “4-H wishes to thank Nancy and volunteers Marge Rothenbiller, Melissa Mathis, and Kelly Obrien-Baker for their efforts to make this much needed clinic a success,” said Linda Horner, Cape May County 4-H Program Coordinator.
