I am plowing through flash cards for my upcoming large animal medicine/surgery exam. Current favorite card:
Q: Best time to castrate a lamb?
A: First 12 hours of life, after that too hard to catch
So descriptive in its brevity.
For the animal shall not be measured by man… They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth. (Henry Beston)
