Amazing podcast

Amazing, informative content! Love hearing from all these outstanding voices in the horse world. Highly recommend this podcast!

Very well done with super knowledgable people

I’m starting vet school in the fall (super excited) I’m planning to go into equine medicine and love all thing veterinary equine podcasts. That said I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to find this podcast! I just happened upon it while searching specifically for podcasts on kissing spine. I really think creators should include “veterinary” or “equine” in the title to make it more searchable or change the pic to something horse related so potential consumers can find you more easily. Really awesome content. I can’t wait to binge the rest!
