Like a horse etherised upon a table

For research purposes I spent the morning at the Cambridge Equine Hospital. Take it from me, you ain’t seen nothing until you have seen an anaesthetised horse stretched out in an operating theatre with tubes coming and going everywhere, undergoing arthroscopic surgery on its hock.

Fun fact: the first thing a horse wants to do on waking up after surgery is to eat, and eat right now.
