At what age did you realize you wanted to become a veterinarian?
I will tell you a secret: I learned how to ride for first time on a cow! I am not joking, when I was a child, my grandparents were not allowed to breed horses because the communist conditions from that period, so they had only cows. I was about 7 and I desperately wanted to ride, so that I started by riding our cows, these were my first lessons and that's how I learned to keep my balance when riding.
Do you have a favorite horse breed?
First of all, you must have a daily contact between you and the horse. Then, a thorough inspection of the body and the hoofs is necessary. We have a saying: it is easier to prevent than to cure; therefore I recommend all my clients to perform a quarterly internal deparasitation, yearly vaccination, teeth control, hoofs cleaning and horseshoeing whenever necessary. I also recommend a well-balanced nutrition consisting of grass, hay, concentrates, vitamins and as many fruits and vegetables as possible (apples, pairs, plums, carrots, pumpkins, etc.), plenty of space for moving (inside as well as outdoors) and a lot of affection. Horses are sensitive animals and they are very receptive to energetic waves, therefore a nervous or impulsive owner will never be able to fully cooperate with his/her horse.
