So for a little background, Cabari is my 27 year old Arabian gelding that I have had since I was 6. I rode him almost everyday until up about 2 years ago when he was just getting too old to keep up with me.
He was tough! He jumped, and ran barrels, and did whatever I wanted until the ripe old age of 25.
Anyways out of no where this random giant abcess came up, and exploded under his chin. My BO had no idea there was anything wrong with him, because it happened so fast. Oh and my family gave him to her a couple years ago to be a lesson horse, but he is still mine at heart)
The vet is not sure what has caused it, but is hopeful it heals up okay. It left a gaping hole 3 inches deep and an infection started in his lymphnodes and has spread throughout his entire body.
I will post updates as they come.
My entire family is heartbroken.
I love my little Arab so much. I just want him to get better.
