Last week we told you about our two November Bucket Fund horses: Phoenix and Andre. You can read the original story here.
Phoenix has a horrible wound on his rump. Andre has a horrible wound on his leg. (Phoenix goes into surgery on Tuesday, we hope… his bloodwork indicated that he needed more time before he could have surgery for this week. The vets still do no know what is going on there.)
UPDATE ON PHOENIX!
It turns out that the huge wound on Phoenix’s leg is a horrible summer sore, left unattended, and full of fly eggs (maggots).
This can be cured, but it will take a long while. For sure, there will be scarring and there could be internal damage.
You can watch this (somewhat gross ) video… know that the vet is squeezing out fly eggs. A bit difficult for the faint of heart.

We are HALFWAY to our goal! Please help if you can… this is horrendous and will take a lot of expert care to heal them.
