When Hera was found she had been wandering for days in the region of Keratea in Attica. After a three day search we found her next to Lavrio Avenue grazing unconcerned while hundreds of cars raced passed her. Our first impression was a positive one; we could see a red mare with glossy hair and a rich mane. But when we looked closer we discovered that behind and under her tail was a huge, bleeding cyst. We moved the mare with some difficulty to the stable for emergency treatment as it was impossible to get her into the transport trailer. Eventually we managed to get her in, fortunately without anybody getting hurt. The diagnosis was a sarcoid tumor. Treatment is ongoing.
