We have a vet about 5 miles away that is very reasonably priced, always answers his cell phone, enjoys his farm work, and has been doing large animals for 25+ years. Luckily we've only needed him once when our mare, Lady, required 30 stiches. He spent 3 hours out here on a Friday evening with his wife, came out 2 more times to check on our mare at no charge, and only charged us $350 total. Since we give our own shots, other than an emergency, we only need him for the rabies shot (vet must do in NC) and coggins test, and he'll freely admit that in the equine vet world, those essential amount to vet lobby/state 'taxes' on horses that provide a base revenue for the large animal vets.
