Veterinarian Mark Crabill files the teeth on Clayton, a 15 year-old show horse at the Las Colinas Veterinary Clinic in Irving, Texas, Friday, July 6, 2001. Assisting Dr. Crabill is Juan Villegas, standing behind the horse. In May, several legislators and acting Lt. Gov. Bill Ratliff urged Texas Tech to create a veterinary school in East Texas. The lawmakers are concerned about a possible shortage of large-animal veterinarians in rural areas and a need to accommodate more qualified applicants. Tech actually had been authorized to create the school in 1971 by what is now the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, but never got the funding from the Legislature. (AP Photo/Ronald Martinez)
