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.
Adoption fee subject to change due to training. Please refer to website for current information.
