The Horse Farm is a teaching and research facility. It is also home to a herd of award-winning Standardbred horses that compete in harness racing events throughout the state. In addition to our thriving breeding program, research at the horse farm improves equine nutrition, physiology, reproduction, and parasitology. But our students say the best part of the horse farm is our Foal Watch program. Students monitor pregnant mares round the clock, help bring foals into the world, and watch them take their first wobbly steps.
