Animal Aggies 4-H Club met at the Cobleskill Veterinary Clinic on April 7th. Club members enjoyed a very educational tour led by Veterinary Technician Dionne, and learned all about the services they provide to a variety of large and small animals. Youth got to tour exam and surgery rooms, viewed X-rays, and learned about some of the equipment, tools and medicines that are used. They also enjoyed walking through the kennel facility and viewing some of the pets that were there for boarding, or recovering from procedures, and weighed themselves on the pet scale. Thanks to the Cobleskill Vet Clinic for hosting us!

Die Hard Dairy Die hard Dairy met twice in April, our 4-H educator Teresa spoke to our club about the 4-H records we should be filling out. We now have a better understanding of what a member port folio and member record book are. All members are encouraged to complete these for the fair. Our club also voted to use money from fundraising to purchase curriculum books for members. Congratulations to Olivia VanEvera and Case Yacobucci who were selected to give there public presentation at the district level at Tamarack High School. Club members also learned many important things about farm safety at our second meeting. A representative from NYCAMH visited with us and taught us many ways to be safe around the farm. we are looking forward to a community service project, field trip, wood working project, and getting prepared for the fair in the months!

Thundering Hooves went over the breeds at Sunny Knolls, Kim brought out different types of Quarter Horses and showed us how they all have a different build, not a cookie cutter breed. She had thoroughbreds, Friesians, minis, ponies, paint cross breeds and so on. We groomed the horses and had lots of hands on experiences. Everyone was involved from grooming to lunging to bringing horses to their stall after the clinic. All the members of Thundering Hooves had some interaction with the horses. Kim did a lecture on each breed as she brought the horse she discussed to the lecture for all to see touch and feel. The clinic was very educational, I think even the adults learned some new information. Thank You Sunny Knolls

The Riders Club met in April and practiced quick release knots to be used to tie horses, and made stall signs for the fair. Senior members Krista and Makayla led the activities. 4

Tyler said, “Dairy Discovery gave him an opportunity to see and learn about new things in the field of ag, that he wouldn't get to do otherwise. Cornell did a good job with the stations, food, taking care of everyone, and the teachers did a great job and were very nice. The mixer activities were lots of fun and cool to meet the other kids”.
