:yes: yup
I "assisted" at my Vernon's colic surgery (ok - I held the bag of lactated Ringer's...) & I remember watching amazed as he was winched, floating upside-down, to the operating table.
The table itself had hydraulics that tilted to accept the horse, then leveled for surgery.

Even more awesome to me was the fact that the gut sorted itself back out after being taken outside the cavity to be emptied.
Vet literally just stuffed handfuls back in.
1) amazing amount of "stuff" inside your horse :eek:
2) amazing capacity of the equine gut - as in buckets of digested matter

Vet let me stay as long as I agreed to her 3 Rules:
No fainting
No crying
No criticizing her stitching

Puking was alright though? :lol:
