I can't stop crying... This is so unfair!

I just got a call from my Barn Owner... The vet was out this morning to clean Galahad's Sheath... Just a simple cleaning, and a simple physical check up... And it ended with the Vet telling JoAnn that Galahad has Cancer... How does that happen... How does something so routine turn into something so horrible... She said she thinks it's spread to the point where there's nothing that can be done.

My B.O is calling Cornell to see if we can bring him up there for more tests and such, she wants to do everything possible to help him. But if it's spread as far as our vet thinks it has, he'll probably have to be put down :no:

Galahad is an 8 year old Shire cross. He was a rescue from being an abused carriage horse. He came to the farm totally strung out and afraid of everything... we've only had him for about 5 months, and I've been doing most of the work with him, I absolutely love him and I am heartbroken

I'm so sorry! He sure is a beautiful boy. Hopefully SOMETHING can be done for him. But, if he is in pain, putting him down is the best that anyone could do for him.


ps- cancer sucks.

How sad, he is in the prime of his life! I hope you can get the tests and they come back with happier news!

That really sucks. I hope something can be done for him. At least he has had you guys for the past 5 months. You guys probably gave him the best months of his life. I'm sending you good thoughts.
