Equine owners, groups and businesses are being encouraged to provide their input on the latest National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) survey. This latest survey, the third since June 2011, pertains primarily with tail alterations and health management.
Revisions to the Equine Code of Practice, using the NFACC Code development process, are slated for completion in the Summer of 2013. These surveys are all active on this NFACC web page and are part of the updated to the Recommended Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Horses.
Here is your opportunity to voice not only your opinions on the survey, but there are fields where comments are allowed. Stakeholders in the equine community are strongly recommended to take a few minutes to provide their very important input on these surveys.
