Facts about Magic

  • Breed: Other/Unknown Mix
  • Color: Palomino
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Male
This sweet guy was brought into AAE on January 24, 2014 after he and his companion were abandoned by their owner and found by a family member (and prior owner) that reached out to AAE for assistance. Not only was Magic in poor condition, the family stated he had several sores all over his body, including a ruptured hernia that had been untreated for at least three (3) years. During AAE's initial evaluation, there were three obviously neglected sores, including a thick, oozing growth on his ear (about the diameter of a quarter), a large, dangling and oozy growth on his abdomen under his flank (about the size and shape of a large ginger root), and a painful looking growth on his sheath (about the size of a half-dollar). Upon vet exam, numerous additional growths were found under his skin in and around his flank, abdomen, and sheath areas. Blood was drawn and the growths were sampled for biopsy.

Magic's blood results were generally good, everything was within normal range other than being a bit anemic. Not unusual considering his condition. Magic's biopsy results indicated the growth on his sheath was a squamous cell carcinoma, and the others on his flank/abdominal areas and ear were sarcoids. The three worst lesions needed to be removed, then treated with a chemo agent to reduce the risk of recurrence.

Once Magic had gained a little weight and settled in, about 16 growths were removed, including the tip of his ear. In general, Magic recovered very well from surgery, and he rebounded from the scrawny, sickly boy he was. He’s looking very healthy and feeling good. One sarcoid has recurred in his inguinal area, and he will undergo further treatment, soon.

Magic has a ton of personality, and he is gaining confidence by the day. He has a very willing spirit, and he’s a ton of fun to work with. He will make a very fun project horse for an experienced handler/rider/trainer. Additionally, Magic’s person should know he may be prone to more sarcoids, and he/she should consider potential future treatment costs prior to adoption. He is current with vaccines, deworming, and dental and hoof care.

About All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) is a 100% volunteer-based, not-for-profit equine rescue and rehabilitation organization located in El Dorado Hills, California.

AAE was founded in 2009 as a result of the down economy and growing number of distressed and auction-bound horses. Our passion for horses and disdain for the reality of slaughter, neglect and abuse prompted our formation. Too many horses are being transported across US borders and commercially slaughtered each year, and many more inhumanely die each year from neglect, abandonment, abuse, or improper care. We wanted to make a difference.

“By saving the life of one horse, we may not be changing the world, but we are changing the world for that one horse.” Author unknown.

Our main facility is located in El Dorado Hills, California on the Digiorno family ranchette, a 14.3 acre property with a 7-stall barn, a hay/storage barn, paddock areas, and a large pasture area with a seasonal creek. In addition to the horses, there are resident goats, sheep, and chickens, as well as dogs (Bouvier Des Flandres) and cats.

Come Meet Our Pets...

AAE is not open to the public; HOWEVER, visits to meet the horses and see the facility can be scheduled by appointment. Please call or email for further information.

Our Adoption Process...

AAE prefers you take your time in choosing your horse. You are encouraged to visit the rescue (by appointment only) to spend adequate time interacting with a horse before making a decision, as it is important to assure an appropriate match. AAE has an adoption process that includes an application process, an adoption agreement, and payment of an adoption fee.

Adoption fees are based on a multitude of factors including the horses’s age, type, and health status, as well as training and experience. Adoption fees are one of AAE’s primary sources of funds for recouping some of the rescue and maintenance costs associated with our horses. Adoption fees are returned entirely to the program and used for supporting costs associated with ongoing care of existing horses and future rescue efforts.
