RETURN OF THE FORT ORD HORSE STOCK

On January 7, 2011 in time for the 70th Anniversary Celebration of the Fort Ord Station Veterinary Hospital one of the original “Ajax horse stocks” were returned to the veterinary hospital. Donated by Coral Armstrong, DVM of Los Coches Animal Hospital, Soledad, Ca. and Tony Parga. Dennis Winfrey, Camp Warhorse of the California Historical Artillery Society donated his time, truck and trailer to bring the stock back to Fort Ord. Assisting were John and Greg Krenzelok. The stock was originally in “Ward A” and removed in the 1960’s by Dr. Gary Deter, DVM and his associate. The stock was then moved to their Veterinary Clinic in Salinas where they were used daily for 40 years until the new owner of the Steinbeck Country Equine Clinic replace the stock with a larger newer one. Coral then became the new owner of the stock.

While we were at it, it was time to move one of the Ward’s water troughs closer. A special “thanks” to Las Animas Concrete (Tyler) who moved the water trough and later had one of his employees grade the driving area in preparation for the 70th Anniversary Celebration of the Fort Ord Station Veterinary Hospital. Las Animas Concrete had donated their time to help out the Equestrian Center many times. Image: Margaret Davis

We were hoping to put the water trough on it's stand but it was a little to large to move it through the door, for now this will work. Image: Margaret Davis
