Dr Jim Carlson, owner of Grove Animal Hospital & Holistic Center and Riverside Animal Clinic McHenry has been selected to speak at the Midwest Horse Fair, Saturday, April 21, 2018 in Madison, Wisconsin. Dr. Carlson and his daughter Avery will discuss the care of the Carlsons burned rescued horse, Emma. Emma was a slaughter bound horse taken in by a group of rescuers and needed the care that a professional home could provide for her. Emma came from the Oklahoma feed lots where thousands of horses land each year and are shipped to slaughter in Mexico. Emma is doing well in her home with the Carlson family and is slowly returning to riding.
