Jasper had a bony growth on the left side of his jaw. It did not seem to bug him or cause him any pain. However, he would repeatedly bump it and break open the skin, so we decided to have the growth removed. We held a fundraiser for a surgery for one of our ponies, Razin, and the community raised more funds than we planned! We used the leftover donations to help pay for Jasper’s surgery. So it was perfect that both Razin and Jasper headed for surgery on the same day. They were there for each other in the trailer and for the sleep over.
Jasper returned looking great. He understandably had some soreness because he stopped eating out of his hay net. However, once we tossed it on the ground he gobbled it up. Jasper is recovering well and will be rejoining his gelding herd in a week.
