Rogo Pictures

Here are more photographs taken the same day as Savanah's also by Maria Casey.













I like the way his neck muscles are developing. Thanks for the beautiful pictures Maria! You captured his sweetness.
Rogo had his sarcoid surgically removed this morning. It was slowly growing and chances of success are higher when they are small. The vet said he thinks he got all of it. It will be biopsied to ensure it is a sarcoid and to see if the edges of the piece removed are cancer free.

Those are gorgeous photos. My favorites are the black and white shots and the picture of you standing next to him and kind of cradling his face. Rogo is a big, beautiful horse!

I hope that his surgery yields good news.

Amazing photos - love the one of his face with the ears against the blue sky.

Glad the sarcoid removal went well - Dawn had a large and growing one in a location where surgery wasn't possible - over her jugular vein - and we successfully removed it with Xterra several years ago.

Love the pictures! They're all beautiful! I hope all is well with the sarcoid removal. My gelding had one removed many, many years ago and it never came back. I hope you have the same luck.

Beautiful shots.

I had a grey mare (Anglo Trakehner) who also had a sarcoid removed. Something about grey horses. Hope the test results are good...what a beautiful boy!

Carol, Rogo is absolutely gorgeous. Glad that the surgery went well, hopefully that'll be the end of the sarcoid now!

These photos are wonderful of your sweet boy! He is just gorgeous - inside and out! Glad the surgery went well.

Thanks very much everyone. I really appreciate your good wishes and ideas / feedback re the sarcoid. It's thanks to all of your feedback on an earlier post in the blog that I'm feeling pretty positive about it.
