I wouldn't have a problem giving a vet reference, although a vet wouldn't have much to say. I do shots and minor treatments myself.about all a vet could say is that my horses have coggins done and my dogs have rabies shots. Oh, and my ponies have worm in the poop I dropped off. Not very helpful, since all of those are pretty cheap, bare bones care. I would just rather do it myself and save a few bucks.
My neighbor could say that the horses get fed twice a day, and he has probably seen me brushing them. I know his dogs name but I've had two, brief conversations with him since I moved in October. It would be weird to knock on his door and ask for a reference. So I probably wouldn't bother with someone checking references. I will answer questions on care and things like that and while bad people can come from all walks of life, the people I have gotten horses from all say I seem like a nice person, hand over the lead rope, and that is the end of it.
