With Another Problem
Toby was hysterical when I went out for evening feed this evening. Chance and Tucker were in the pasture, just out of sight and Toby was calling and circling in his stall.
I gave him some hay, got the feed and called the other two Boys in.
Along came Tucker, three legged lame, limping badly on his left front foot. When I first looked, I thought he had simply lost his shoe. But no. The shoe was twisted on his foot and he was walking on both it and the front clinch. I managed to get the shoe off completely, but he was still lame on that foot.
I didn't do anything with it for now as ideally, I'd like to have Scott look at it first, but Tucker is locked in his stall next to Toby for now. If his foot needs treatment, I guess the problem of Toby's being upset staying in alone has been solved.
Sometimes bad things have a bright side, depending on your perspective. Bad for Tucker, good for Toby.
Hopefully Tucker hasn't done any serious damage.....*sigh*
