Chance Report and another Cover

Still Sore in His Heels

My vet was out yesterday to look at Chance. On the plus side, Chance was perfectly willing to trot on the lunge which was a big improvement. On the down side, he still is sore in the front. This time it was the right front.

My vet did a heel nerve block and he went sound on that foot. But he was still landing toe first on the left front. Theory is that he is protecting his heels.

We can't yet do a new Lyme titer as we have to wait for about 2 months. In the meantime, we are going to try either bar shoes or natural balance wedge shoes to see how that works. Hate the idea, but if it makes my boy feel better, that's good.

Did I tell you I had a Lyme test and it was negative? Now I am waiting to see how my allergy tests came out.

Meantime, the next novel cover.


  1. Poor Chance. I hope he starts feeling better soon.

    Love the cover and title!

  2. I am glad your test was negative! But poor Chance, even though he was willing to trot, you and the vet still see some soreness. I hope your other two are doing well.

    Intriguing cover and title!

  3. ooh a dragon! but looks like a nasty one....

    hope Chance starts improving more soon...
