I am going to be looking at very potential horse on Sunday (My birthday )
He is about 1 hour away from me and I definitely want to have a pre-purchase exam done on him.
The only problem I can come up with now is what vet to do the exam. My vet would also be an hour away and I'm sure that he would charge a lot for the farm call as he has to travel 1 hour to see the horse and then 1 hour back. I have not called to ask him yet though.
Or should I get a vet in the area of the horse?
How does a pre-purchase exam work? Would they tell me on the spot if he passes of fails? Would I need to wait for anything to come back? (unless I do bloodwork)
