In case you were wondering:
You may have noticed that the land at the corner of Raymond Stotzer Parkway and FM 2818 is being cleared. The CVM is carefully clearing that space for our beautiful horses to graze and to be cared for by our awesome team of veterinarians and veterinary students. The project's success will be obvious to the community by a beautifully designed entrance on the west side of the university that also serves as a safe and serviceable pasture for our horses.
