    LDVet and I got this awful tubby cat yesterday. We were looking at the nerves in the forelimb and the whole time I was pulling bits of fat trying to decide if they were nerves. . .
    Fat is such a pain!! We got a really nice goat in anatomy last week with literally no fat whatsoever. It was a joy! I now only have one week of anatomy left and then I am done with it!! This photo was from three weeks ago (don't look if you don't like anatomy dead stuff):

    A non-fatty goat!! All the goats we get have more fat than any other animal! Horses are usually great, and the little fat that is there is yellow, so you can easily tell it apart from nerves, etc. Greyhounds are also good, if you're lucky enough to get one!

    Just revising for exams for us at the moment. Have technically finished all lectures now so just need to get it into my head (exams next week, eek!)
    Had a practical session on clinical examination of the horse and auscultation of the equine thorax on tuesday which was really interesting. Have since discovered that my horse absolutely hates stethoscopes, and therefore now hates me haha. We got the full tantrum - ears back, head up, stompind front feet, lashing out with the back... all good fun really. Still after an intesive course in stethoscope acceptance he'll now let me have a good listen to everything except gut sounds.

    Apart from that having serious motivation issues, just cannot be bothered to learn for these exams :s

    Well we're begining to wind down here now. Into the last week of our semester - 1/10 of the way through :eek: Scary stuff. . . I've just been doing some anatomy q's on the neck. Awesome stuff. I don't care what anyone says - Dyce, Sack and Wensing are the best people ever Dyce was actually an anatomist at the **** Vet :yep: He even taught our current lecturer which is pretty cool.

    We have one exam this week which is on biosecurity, a few lectures, clinical skills and an ethical debate :yep:

    I got the calcaneus and David got a patella! David also got a femur from a cat that was about a million years old. It's really not that bad though. If there are a lot of you then try and go in early on before she starts getting bored!!

    Well I'm now into a steady slug of revision. . . It is brightened by the random facts I find out though The worst thing about this whole thing is the unknown. I don't know if I'll pass or not but I'm going to put my all into it and keep positive :yep: I did better than I expected in my lab book and thats given me a little boost over the holidays to work hard. Well back to work! I'll probably keep you posted on my progress lol xxx

    Well done on the Glasgow offer! Just saw your dig

    Well lets use this blog for what it is meant for. . . Procrastinating :yep:

    Here at the awesome **** vet us little first years are getting into exam mode. It's not easy to revise atm what with new examinable material still being taught, a lab book to be written up and revision. I don't know how people do it but they must have done to progress. I've decided to go under the thinking I will fail but I'm going to make a pretty good stab at revision lol Strange thinking but its working. I just don't want to be disappointed.

    Dissections are interesting just now. I had graet fun the other day in the intestines of an dog following all the jejumum around! A group also found a dog with heart worms when we were doing the thorax! That was really interesting. Unfortunately we are onto the hind limb. I wasn't keen on the forelimb tbh so hopefully it will be better.

    How is everyone else doing?

    I think first year is largely about learning how to manage the workload xFuture_Vetx, I'm sure you'll get an idea of how to balance your time after the first set of exams!

    I am exhausted, but it's my own fault for trying to do too much. Must concentrate on studying. I think I've finally relaxed a bit now I'm on the G&T course and really, relaxing is the last thing I need to be doing!

    It's nearly Friday though, hurrah :woo:

    Finally got all our exam results back from the set of exams before christmas!!!

    Anatomy:76%
    Animal Husbandry:64%
    Physiology:77%
    Biomolecular sciences:78%

    Im really really happy with them, they got me a drink and everything (me and a friend had a little competition going on)

    However so far this year I just cannot get into it. I managed to stay awake for the first 2 days of lectures and since then dont think I've managed one whole lecture without falling asleep.
