Re: RC: sarcoids

Again, I ha vet a 17 year old stallion that had (has) a quarter size
sarcoid above one has been there since he was three.  My vet
advised to leave it alone, which I did.  It has not grown or irritated
him...just no hair in that spot.

Sometimes, I think vets make a LOT of money doing things that Mother
Nature can do better.... time heals much.
