The patient, a brown 7 year old American saddle horse, was admitted to Stange Memorial Clinic April 1, 1948. The horse had been a ribbon winner in several shows in the midwest. The owner reported that about a year ago he noticed his horse was losing some of his previous spirit, but his endurance remained. Because of the horse's carriage, he continued to place in every show entered.
