A friend thought I was being a bit rude as I referred to one of the doctors in my recent medical nightmare as a horse doctor. Apparently, she thought I was disparaging the veterinary profession. I didn't really think of it in those terms, more a simple effort to claim my displeasure with the skills pf that particular doctor. Truth is, no I wouldn't really take a horse to see her. What did the horse ever do to me?
The term Horse Doctor is a derogatory term much akin to Quack when referring in a derogatory manner to the medical skill of a doctor. It is not my invention.
