Cyclone was humanely euthanized after a rapid decline. He was being treated for EPM, but his condition quickly worsened. The decision was made to put him to rest. NC State performed a necropsy and discovered the EPM caused a lesion in his brain. It would not have been fixable. We are very sad to lose such a sweet soul.

 

Teenage Arabian gelding, approx 17-18. 14.2 hands. Rescued from the kill buyer from an auction in PA. Cyclone was very timid on arrival, but has really turned a new leaf in the past few months. He is still cautious, but now walks up to people and will hang out for awhile. While he does ride, he is not suitable for more than light riding/pony rides with a small child due to his dropped pasterns.
