March 8, 2023 – CBC PEI: Christina Lecky is worried about something happening to her horses. The owner and operator of Bracken Hill Stable in Baltic says she doesn’t have a veterinarian if her horses need one.
“If there’s an accident or there’s a reason to need a vet for emergency purposes, there’s no one I can call,” Lecky said. “So it’s pretty precarious right now.”
Lecky’s stable houses seven horses right now, and while she started breeding in 2019, she won’t have any foals this year.
“Last year I had a foal that needed to have a plasma transfusion and I had a mare that needed emergency care and both wouldn’t be here if I didn’t have emergency services,” she said. “So I’m in that position where I’m nervous about expanding my business.”
