Help for Beau's Nose
Beau had a rough start in life, and now he's facing another challenge. He's been diagnosed with Bacterial Sinusitis, and needs surgery. For those that don't know Beau, in February of 2014 he wandered into Gallup, NM from the open range. Animal Control picked him up, and handed him off to the New Mexico Livestock Board (a state agency). Beau was then listed as an estray and held for 5 days in case an owner should show up (judging from Beau's condition, that was a remote possibility). At the end of that 5 days he was auctioned off - a prime target for kill buyers. Caring people donated money to the New Mexico Equine Estray Fund so that we could hopefully secure his future. Thankfully, we won the bid. Beau was a sad shape. His halter was imbedded in his face and was cut off by Animal Control. The dent in his nose in the photo above is the remaining evidence of the too small halter. He was thin, and both back legs were scarred from wire cuts. And, of course, not gelded. So Beau went off to the trainers right away to get him tame enough to be castrated. That done, it was time to address his other needs - hoof care, weight gain, deworming. All the while an occasional runny nose would appear. Over time it became runny more often than not, and eventually became voluminous enough to warrant veterinary intervention. Beau needs to have a hole drilled into his head so the vet can flush out the sinus cavity. The vet estimates that daily flushing for a week to 10 days will solve the problem. The estimated cost of this procedure is $1000.00. If you can help offset these expenses Beau would be most grateful (and so would us humans!!).

UPDATE - 2-12-16
Beau has had is surgery and is recovering nicely. The mucous was thick, but no lumps (a very good thing). Dr.'s plan to flush daily for the next 7 days. Fingers crossed, prayers on the wind!
