AAE took in this poor, sweet guy late on January 24, 2014 after he had been abandoned by his owner. He and his companion, Love, were found by a family member (prior owner) that reached out to AAE for assistance because they were unable to provide support for two horses, especially in the condition they were in. Although Magic's weight was not horrible, family said he had several sores all over his body, including a ruptured hernia,that had been untreated for at least three years.

When AAE arrived, we found Magic with three obvious sores, including an oozing growth on his ear (about the size of a quarter), a dangling and oozy growth on his abdomen under his flank (about the size and shape of a big 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. Samples were collected for biopsy, and we are awaiting blood and biopsy results. He is a gentle, affectionate guy, and it's so sad and distressing to know someone could ignore his needs for so long.

Update: Magic's blood results were generally good with everything within normal range other than being a bit anemic. Not unusual considering his condition, and with proper nutrition, should resolve soon. Magic's biopsy results indicated the growth on his sheath is a squamous cell carcinoma, and the other on flank/abdominal area is a sarcoid. The remaining lesions/growths, including his ear also appear to be sarcoids. The three worst lesions need to be removed and treated with chemo to reduce the risk of recurrence. Surgery and chemo costs are estimated at $2,000, and AAE has incurred approximately $500 to date in evaluation, bloodwork, biopsies, and dental work. The good news is our generous supporters have stepped forward for this sweet guy and his surgery is now scheduled!
