A museum quality venue at an appropriate public site will capture the role of horses in powering ranching and agriculture, the Canadian war effort, and the march West of the North West Mounted Police, noting early veterinarians on the scene.
Our exhibit will showcase the development of the veterinary profession in western Canada during the 1900-1915 period. Our exhibit will include a working office with a collection of artifacts that depict the tools of a veterinarian’s practice. It will also include live enactments of a practicing veterinarian working from a horse-drawn carriage, travelling through the historical village of Heritage Park.
