Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center Hosts Annual Dental Clinic for Horses

Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center Hosts Annual Dental Clinic for Horses

PENRYN, Calif.  – The premier equine medical center in Placer County and surrounding communities is preparing to host one of its largest medical events of the year as it expects to be the dentist for more than 1,500 horses this December. Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center is bringing back one of its most popular patient service deals by offering half price dental service to horses.

Last year Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center welcomed 1,488 horses in December, examining and balancing their mouths to increase their comfort level and ability to chew their food.. Just like humans have their teeth filed down, cleaned or get fillings, horses need help keeping their mouths healthy too. A horses teeth keep growing throughout their lives, so by floating/filing down the sharp points and waves they develop over the course of their lives, Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center is able to keep the horses teeth balanced and not sharp, which can be painful for them.

Navajo Textile Viewing and Author Talk

Navajo Textile Viewing and Author Talk

Northeast Arizona, land of the Navajo, is home to mother and daughter Lucy and Ellen Begay.

Weaving in the Navajo culture has strong cultural values, and for Lucy and Ellen, weaving is part of their daily rhythm.  Author and collector Gary Beaudoin will soon visit Yolo County to discuss and display the Begays' handmade authentic Navajo textiles.

Gary Beaudoin is the author of Unbroken Web: The Art of Ellen & Lucy Begay, Navajo Weavers.  He is the keeper of a collection of Navajo textiles by the Begays.  The collection spans 20 years of their work and each weaving is one-of-a-kind.  Living a pastoral life in Northeast Arizona, the remote landscape inspires their weaving designs.  The Begays say they weave “what they see”.
