UF vets save horse’s life, now set to become model

Published: March 5 2012

When a basketball-sized abscess was found in the abdomen of Laura Moon’s horse, the owner relied on UF’s Large Animal Hospital and veterinarians Dr. Chris Sanchez and Dr. Alison Morton to help save the horse named Mariah’s Boon. After an exploratory surgery did not reveal the culprit, the veterinarians chose to drain the abscess and found two pieces of metal.  Mariah’s Boon has since made a full recovery and has been chosen by the Breyer model horse company to be a future model.
