Overview

Equine ER explores the power of the human-horse connection, through the lens of the esteemed hospital, located in the horse-crazy Bluegrass, birthplace of greats like Man o War. At the hospital, a core of iconoclastic doctors perform cutting-edge medicine on their four-footed patients, whether it is an experimental drug on a mare dying of pleural pneumonia, or brain surgery on a foal kicked in the head. The book follows the emotional journeys that doctors and owners embark on when a beloved horse becomes ill. It is proof that what horse trainer, poet, and writer Vicki Hearne once said is true: In over 25 years of training, I have never seen an animal who was replaceable.

    Great Book for experienced horsemen and horse lovers from every level

    Great reading and very much a part of "the real world cost" of having and maintaining horses. The author did a great job mixing the medical and personal stories.
