    .................................................................................................................................................................................................................Caslick!:).(hope I got the spelling right:D)

    I injected the site to numb it (after cleaning, ofcourse), then cut with the scalpel until my finger would no longer 'catch' on the inside (as I had been instructed).

    When I had finished I requested my boss check (inside and out) to make sure I had done a good job, and he classified it as 'perfect', which is very high praise from him!;)

    Now I'll have to find something else at work that is new to me, so that I can learn something new

    See even bloody mares get plastic surgery. It probably only cost a few hundred dollars to do.

    Do you think I could get my fanny plastic surgery for that amount?????

    Even me bloody dog got an upper and lower eyelift for $400. Why is animal plastic surgery so much cheaper??

    As a mare gets older and has had a few foals she stretches and/or her anus retreats back into the pelvis. So instead of the poop falling away from her vulva if falls onto it. If the vulva is slack some will get in there and can cause infections. Caslicks prevent the infection and therefore increase the chance of a successful pregnancy.

    wow I knew there was a couple of ways to do this. But my goodness that one is just ummm ouch! my mare had a caslick however her's was just a special kind of stitch and it was left in. and the stitching cut couple of months into being in foal. All she had was tiny little dots looked like had been wearing earings. Her's was just to keep infection out to get pregnant. She ended up foaling 6 weeks early
