At the Old State House: 'From Farming to Therapy: Animals at Work'
"Enjoy a presentation on nineteenth-century agrarian life" by Rhys Simmons, coordinator of Agriculture at Old Sturbridge Village, followed by a panel discussion led by the Connecticut Network’s (CT-N) Diane Smith, the release said.
Smith "will sit down with Simmons and other animal experts to discuss the various roles animals hold inside the working world and the steps that have been taken and should be taken to ensure their safety."
The horses of Hartford’s Mounted Police will visit at the end of the program, the release said. The free event is sponsored by Connecticut Humanities.
