Quick Tip #9 When Faced With An Equine Medical Emergencycy
Exhale. That is step one. Take a deep breath, exhale and then give a close, thoughtful examination of the horse. Shut up crying and whining. There will be time for that later. For now, determine the answer to every question that the vet is going to ask you when you call in. The correct answer to "How big is the cut?" is never "Its big." The correct answer is "About three inches long, but over an inch deep at its deepest point."
Your horse's life might depend on your ability to maintain your composure in an emergency.
