I doubt if you could do anything that hasn't been done before.  My personal
favorite is the P&R volunteer at a NATRC ride a few years ago who was very
intently pressing the stethoscope up against my horse and looking a bit
puzzled.  Finally, as straightfaced as I could, I pointed out that he could
hear the heart much better if he came up forward and listened through the
rib cage --  instead of trying to pick it up through all the gut sounds! <g>
