Caring For Our Horses

Posted on: November 1st, 2012 by maxslove12 No Comments

 Maxillian is unfortunately dealing with chemo treatments for cancer on his right eyelid.  Horses with a light colored or white face are susceptible to cancer.  His blue eye makes the chances even higher for cancer.  Even wearing fly masks and staying out of the sun, the risk is higher for these horses.  We caught his early, treating it aggressively, and now will be cleaning and adding skin healing ointments to allow time for the area to heal.  Our doctor will be keeping a close eye on this big guy! Maximillian is cooperating with all the fingers and ointments we have to put on him everyday for the cancer to be totally gone.
