New Rescue..Need some Advice..

We just got a new rescue on saturday, he's a 17hand Tb that had a broken leg and its healed and sound now but he's basically just going to be a pasture mate. He's extremely skinny so we are feeding him three times a day, we started with alfalfa cubes(soaked) and a small amount of grain. He's eating really good and he's such a sweet heart.

He is a grey and has lumps on his anus and sheath. They range fromm the size of a pea to the size of a marble. The vet is coming out to look him over next monday.

My questions are, has anyone had expereience with greys and cancer on their anus and sheath?
What was their prognosis?
How long did they live with it?

Also we were brushing his mane and it was just falling out, could this be from malnutrition?

Thanks for any input I will try to get some pictures

I was reading something a while ago about how greys are more prone to it , I have never saw it but and forgive me if im wrong but I think they can be easily treated.
Good luck :)

Greys are prone to sarcomas. They can be removed, some will come back some won't. He will probably be just fine.

i have seen a grey with tumors around the anus and vagina. she had to be put down because they were cancerous but she lived to be 26yrs old.
