"Equine" means "Horse"

And, in case there were any doubt:

Sorry to burst your bubble, but equine does not ONLY refer to horses:

1. Of, relating to, or characteristic of a horse.
2. Of or belonging to the family Equidae, which includes the horses, asses, and zebras.

So if someone needs treatment for their ass, they will not find it there.

So then, I can't take my Zebra to the "Edmonton Equine Veterinary Services"?

Yah. Whatever.

Or, for that matter, Miss va1kyrie, we can't take you there for ass re-attachment, (since you are laughing it off), or for a smartass upgrade either, because they won't work on asses?? Only horses.

Yes, I see. But if you were laughing your horse off, then it would be okay. That is something they would do.

Which begs the question, where is one's horse anyway? Or is it like "arse", but with some form of speech impediment?

Ah, the myriad of questions one asks oneself when functioning on very little sleep. (J had a rough night.)

Maybe they would treat me for a charley horse. {tee hee}
