Spring Alpha Gold

Spring Alpha Gold, a 15yr old quarter horse gelding, owned by Lannie Hubble is a prime example in our patient of the month category.
Spring became acutely lame on his left front foot and after a thorough diagnostic workup was diagnosed with a keratoma, a type of tumor in the keratin layer of the foot.
After surgical excision, corrective shoeing and a lengthy recovery, Spring has returned to full use in the roping arena and is back at the pay window, recently carrying Lannie to win a saddle.
