    I don’t know how you collect urine from a horse except possibly opportunistically. That would be following it around until it happened to start urinating and diviing under it with a pan. Otherwise I can see that using a urinary catheter as you would with a dog would collect a closer to sterile specimen. Regardless, there must be better paying and less dangerous employment.
