It was a wound, so at first they’ve cleaned it good and waited to see what will happen. Luckily the wound healed and the horse recovered very quick after the medical treatment.
Shortly after that, they did some x-rays and something unexpected occurred! Inside of the horse’s leg there has been a foreign body and the medical team has decided to open up the wound.
What happened next was a big shock for the medical team! After sedating the horse and starting the procedure by opening up the wound, they’ve found something upsetting. There were so many thriving bot eggs inside that part of the horse’s front leg and they had to clean them up right away!

Cool case! This Horse was presented to us with a pliable lump on the inside of his right from leg. The history given…
