The boot remains

Originally uploaded by spottyhorse67

Much to my surprise--especially after a solid night of rain--the diaper and duct tape boot we reapplied yesterday was still in place this afternoon. Phew!

Even better than that, Bar is putting weight on the foot and moving much more comfortably than he had been. He even let me pick up the other hind foot without any fuss or obvious discomfort. Yes!

The plan is to see how it's all holding together tomorrow, take a little walk to see how he's moving, and call Mike for next steps. If Bar is doing well enough, we'll probably put a shoe back on in the next few days and see how he does.

Certainly, the energy under the skin is beginning to hum at normal levels, too, which was really good to see.
