    lol, just read comment, no standing castrations. What if you've given enough meds to drop a horse, and he's still standing up? Head droops, but when vet approaches, horse snorts and gets awake. My vet turns to me and says "I'm afraid if I give him any more, I'll kill him."  There he stands. You going to walk away?

      up doing?

      Old medical saying:  "Anybody can put the patient to sleep. It's the waking them up again that takes education and skill".

      Thanks for the advice on the web, too!

      "Privatize to Profitize" explains every single Republican economic, social and governing philosophy. Take every taxpayer dollar from defense, education, health care, public lands, retirement - privatize it, and profit from it.

        All bleeding stops..... eventually.

        Vet ended up cutting him standing up. He was still a bit snorty,  trying to kick in slo-mo. I held a front foot up for the first minute, then the beast settled down.
        This was a peculiar case, I had a line of horses that seemed almost immune to the popular sedatives of the 80s and 90s. This colt's mother once stood up on a drip we had going to reset heart bars. She was horrible to shoe, and they were put on up at Va. Tech, at the time of her founder, with her down under. Time came for reset, we had vet out to lay her down so I could get them properly reset. I was on the second foot and bam! up she staggers... She was dopey enough that I managed to finish ok without putting her back down.
        Another colt of hers did the same thing getting a leg sewn up. That one drug poor Tom around the barn aisle for a good 10 minutes though.

        Good luck with your business and website!
