History of Delta Equine Center

Below are some of the milestones in history of Dr Larry Findley Sr in the creation of Delta Equine Center, LLC in 1983 located in Vinton, LA.

New veterinarian likes large animals, housecalls


The Sheridan Headlight, Thursday, October 18, 1979


A HORSE HOUSE CALL- This is how to wrap his leg to help a bowed tendon. Sheridan's newest veterinarian took time to explain to a horse owner how to apply the bandage so she could do it herself without calling a doctor every time. The owner, Margaret Dreher said the horse was an older animal her daughter rides in shows.




Construction of New Small Animal Facility


Delta Equine Center begins the remodel of the old barn area to incorporate a Small animial hospital and large animal surgical suite. In the picture Brad and Craig Findley look around and check out the progress during their daily inspection.


Hurricane Rita makes land fall

The ReBuild of Delta Equine Center


Hurricane Rita was the catalysts to Dr Larry Findley to move forward with the plans to build the new Delta Equine Center facility located right off Interstate 10 on west street in Vinton, LA.
