Volunteer and Educational Opportunities

Saturday, July 8, 2017 we welcome the Pikes Peak Community College Zoo Keeping Science students to Spirit Keeper Equine. They will spend the day working and learning about husbandry and behavior of equids to prepare them for careers at zoos and sanctuaries. These facilities often house a number of equids such as Zebra, Wild Asses, Mongolian Wild Horses, and sometimes domestic horses. Learning to care for horses is helpful in the general care of most ungulates (hoof-stock) both domestic and wild; mammals that includes odd-toed ungulates like horses and rhinoceroses, and even-toed ungulates like cattle, pigs, giraffes, camels, deer, and hippopotamuses. Most terrestrial ungulates use the tips of their toes, usually hoofed, to sustain their whole body weight while running away from predators. They are primarily herbivores, either browsers or grazers.
