“There remain challenges too. A couple years ago I brought over hundreds of doses of West Nile Vaccinations (it is unavailable in China) for my friend Yushi Peng, an equine vet in Beijing, in exchange for some translation help. Yushi, who can swear so well in English it makes my sides hurt from laughing, tells me stories about colic surgery in the pasture because of no access to a clinic. There is one, repeat one, equine clinic north of Hong Kong. North of Hong Kong is essentially all of China. It is not a profession for the faint of heart, and I admire her toughness.”
