AH, but did your husband's patients weigh 1200 lbs with an attitude to match, complete with head tossing? ;)
I'm sure he is competent but please make sure you have a vet show him on a horse, it can actually be quite different than in a human. The carotid runs close to the jugular if you go a little too low. Nothing wrong with doing IV injections yourself if you are comfortable with it, but do make sure you know where your landmarks are and check a couple times throughout the injection to make sure you're still in the vein!
