Cherie, we are defiantly going to have it biopsied she is in great health besides this melanoma or whatever it may be???? It has been there for before we got her, and really doesnít seem to affect her, however my daughter loves riding this mare and she really performs great for her, so we are going to try to keep her around as long as possible. I am, like I stated before, about 90% sure its melanoma and I am more of a conservative when it comes to treatment options, and I have heard that melanomas and sarcoids when tampered with can sometimes spread or be exacerbated by surgical treatment so I would really have to think long and hard before deciding to remove it or have surgery performed on it. I have found a vet that will do the biopsy, Now the fun part trying to coordinate our schedules. Thanks everyone for your opinions and advice always enjoy learning new things from everyone.
