A horse with a tracheotomy, a hole cut into the trachea to facilitate breathing. This particular horse had been bitten on the nose by a snake, resulting in severe swelling of his nostrils to the point that they were occluded. The snakebite also produced a coagulapathy where his blood didn’t clot effectively, causing intermittent bleeding. He made a full recovery.
