Our vet was going to charge $40 to do it. That's $35 more than what it cost me. And I still have half a bottle of excaliber left over!
Its gross, smelly and a little awkward. It only takes a few mintues and your horse really doesn't know the difference. When I was doing it I thought of it as changing my daughters diapers for the first time. Gross, invasive, and it felt a little inappropriate...however it is neccessary! The only difference is, I've changed about 700 million diapers since that day...it only gets easier! LOL
