Sometimes I think your better off not knowing. The farrier looked at Flash today and doesn't believe his hoof will grow back. He is surprised that he is not lame on it. When Flash is a little older he can put a special bar shoe on to support the heel that is missing. It's going to test my doctoring skills to the limit. He is healing nicely. I'm working on getting him out of the stall into a grassy area. As long as he can move around on it without pain I have to give him a chance. Good thing he is a good patient. I had my two old foundered mares put down this year, now I have this to deal with. I've been trying to keep Gerald from selling his yearlings and broodmare, now I have to agree with him. This will take up so much of my time.
