I recently toured the new University of Minnesota Equine Hospital, and there were five horses in the entire place (they had at least 30 stalls). Their prices are too high, and the veterinarians are usually nicer (and more reasonable priced) at the smaller practices. When I toured Anoka Equine (also in Minnesota), they were nearly full with horses on a Tuesday.
I work next door to a racing TB breeder, and I didn't see any babies this year. Not sure if it was due to the economy or personal reasons...now that I think about it, I haven't seen many foals at all.
