As many of you know, our beloved co-founder, Reeses, is a senior-age Thoroughbred mare with some on-going health challenges.
We are honored to have received generous support from a wonderful foundation who provides critical funds for Thoroughbreds, called After The Finish Line. Their grant will cover the cost of essential medical procedures, diagnostics, treatment and medications for Reeses, helping Project Horse to keep Reeses at optimal health & wellness!
On November 29, Reeses paid a visit to the Marion DuPont Equine Medical Center (EMC) in Leesburg, Virginia for a recheck of the growth behind her left eye socket. You may recall in December 2017 that a growth was discovered which necessitated the removal of her left eye. The surgery brought relief from pain and pressure (she had already lost sight in the eye several months prior).
The follow-up appointment, which consisted of a wellness check, CT scan and endoscopy, showed the growth was moving towards the sinus cavity - which is very good news! It is hoped that when Reeses has her next follow-up in six months, a tissue sample can be obtained to determine what the growth is.
The staff at the EMC remarked how wonderful Reeses looked and that she was bright, alert and was showing no ill effects of the growth.
Project Horse staff continue to monitor Reeses for any changes that require intervention. Reeses is enjoying life - as it should be!
We extend our heartfelt thanks to the generosity of After The Finish Line for providing a grant to ensure Reeses’ ongoing good health and comfort.
