Update on Ben

Ben started limping about 3 days before we took him to the farm. We had asked that he go to the vet as soon as possible, although we had been more concerned with monitoring his lumps and skin condition. The vet found a very aggressive bone cancer is his front leg. His leg was amputated today. The weight bearing bone was almost completely gone and a fracture would have been imminent. We don't know how much time Ben has left (they have said maybe around 6 months), but we do know his quality of life will be vastly improved! The surgery went well and Ben should return to the farm tomorrow.
