ABSTRACT:

The following report describes an unusual case of poor performance. The findings of clinical examination were unremarkable in a 16 year-old gelding, however neutropaenia and anaemia were identified on haematological examination. A bone marrow disorder was suspected and ultimately confirmed. The investigation of anaemia in horses is discussed with reference to this unusual case.
