To think my time here in Belize is shortly coming to an end is really upsetting. I’ve enjoyed ever second of all the opportunities I got to embark on. I also love the aspect that this week I learned how my tuition for this course is going towards the farm’s I’m visiting. It’s really rewarding to give back to these communities in any possible way. They are all extremely passionate about their animals and since finances are tuff its nice to be able to help keep their animals healthy and happy. The beginning of the week started with sheep! We administered dewormer and rabies; we were able to perfect our injecting skills and restraining. Then later on in the day we got to visit the sheep and goat breeding facility here in Belize. They will breed the animals their and then sell them to different farmers. They are trying to eliminate certain disease and help improve genetics. Then we got to do more physicals and injections on horses. We groomed them and then we got the chance to go horseback riding! I was actually able to ride one of the horses I gave a physical on. When we reached the top of the mountain the views were breathtaking, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Belize has one of most gorgeous scenery I will miss it.
