Lydia Andersen of Baker City explains how a new technology called “Equinosis’’ can help detect lameness in horses. The system uses a small computerized device that detects and determines the degree of lameness. Andersen placed second in the senior presentation competition, which was won by Cody Arbogast of Wallowa County.
