I did it all day long for $2.00 an hour as a teen for summer money. I dont miss it.

It's very difficult to get a vet to come out for a horse in his AO. They make more money on cats and dogs without worrying about getting kicked so you learn to do it yourself.
When I was working with horses in hunting camps the local vet would sell me a bunch of sutures for my med kit. A season would not go by when I did not have to stitch up a horse. Fall seemed to be the worst time when the ground froze and dumbasses didn't get the wire policed up off the ground . There were drift fences everywhere in the basin for cattle. We'd have to twitch their muzzles when we stitched em. They did not like it much!
