    Ok, so I'm in my 6th year of a complete 7 year Veterinary degree (comprised of a 3-year Bachelor of Veterinary Biology and now on a 4-year Bachelor of Veterinary Science which is the main degree).

    If I decided to specialise into exclusively Equine work - it would take me 4 years (in South Africa) for reproduction, a 1-year internship followed by a 3-year residency for either Medicine or Surgery. So unless you're interested in specialising in two separate Specialities, no matter that you're in the U.S. And I'm in S.A. As I know A LOT of U.S. Veterinary students, it is not going to take you 14 years of studying.

    And, don't know if its different in the States, but I spend a grand total of one year on Equines as a whole, after I spent 4 years in basic Anatomy, Physiology, Biology, Physics, Histology, Pharmacology, Toxicology, Parasitology, Pathology - you name it followed by a year of Bovines and Small Animals. The year I'm currently in is my Equine year (combined with 10 other subjects) so please don't assume that members of this forum know nothing about ALL that goes into Veterinary Science. ALL you mentioned, was probably not even a months worth of work.

    And please believe me, because I mean this with all that I am, veterinary science is a tough degree. I find the time to be with my mare for 2 hours a day, more on weekends and she is part of the stud herd on my campus. With all the lectures, practicals and study time, it is difficult to find a lot of free time, so please just remember this. I'm not saying it can't be done if you're determined but just keep this in mind.

    THIS is what shwos me your immaturity level. You're on a public forum asking for career advice, and you're calling people "dude," forgetting what your 4th grade english teacher taught you about capitalization and spaces, and you have completely unrealistic goals that seem to be based off of Disney movies and underdog-to-winner stories.

    ETA: No one is crushing your dreams. Heck, I'm planning on being a vet and I'm only 13. However, a lot of what you've posted is questionable, especially the thing you have going saying that Utah has completely different schools and customs.

    You post this like you are nearing the end of your life and you are missing out on your dream and if you do not fulfill your dream right this very second you will be crushed because your dream has not come to fruition.

    It is called drama. Nothing more. The OP is making up numbers and things and spewing them as if they are facts for a dramatic affect. Obviously the OP thinks the rest of us are not as smart as her and do not see through the lies.
