Update on B:

His procedure went well. The Dr. feels all of the infection present in his sinus cavity has been flushed. Unfortunately during the procedure B started to bleed so he has to stay at the hospital overnight (the sinus cavity is a very vascular area so bleeding can occur).

We so appreciate everyone who has donated, shared the fundraiser and sent well wishes. Please keep it going...B definitely feels the love (although he is a bit groggy right now)!

Update: Saturday, April 6:

B is home!

Update on B (Friday April 5):

B will be spending another night at the Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center. He is still bleeding a little from his sinus, plus he was behaving a little colicky last night. Dr. Brown feels it is in B’s best interest to stay for another night so he can be watched around the clock...and we agree.

This will push B’s hospital bill higher than we expected, but it is what is best for B.

We thank all who have donated, shared our posts and sent well wishes for B. Please keep sharing! Any donations would be greatly appreciated...no donation is too small!

B will be visited by Project Horse staff later today and we will share some pictures from the visit.

Update on B:

His procedure went well. The Dr. feels all of the infection present in his sinus cavity has been flushed. Unfortunately during the procedure B started to bleed so he has to stay at the hospital overnight (the sinus cavity is a very vascular area so bleeding can occur).

B needs your support again!

In February we took B to the Equine Medical Center to have an abscessed tooth extracted. Everything went well, including the several weeks of healing.

Last week, the sinus infection returned. With our veterinarian’s guidance, we managed it as best we could at the farm but with no improvement it’s time for B to make another trip to the EMC to see a specialist.

We don’t know if this is related to his previous dental abscess or if it is a separate issue. All we know is B is not feeling his best and we want to do whatever we can to help him feel better.

We anticipate his outpatient hospital bill could be around $1,000-$1,200. Project Horse could really use some help offsetting the expense.

Any and all donations to this fundraiser would be greatly appreciated. And if you can’t donate please share this post. Well wishes for B would also be appreciated (we do read comments to the horses).

We will keep everyone updated on B’s hospital visit tomorrow!

(P.S.: Even though B wasn’t feeling great he still wanted to meet some teens who came to Project Horse for a field trip. B even posed for pictures 😊)
