Judd Smith

In the fall of 2014, Pine Hills Veterinary Hospital was fortunate enough to welcome Judd on board to help provide superior animal care.  At home, Judd still enjoys starting colts and roping as much as possible.  He has an  Aussie named Joni, who is his constant companion in everything at the farm.
