I got a call from my barn owner that Jimmy is sore on his right front leg (the non-bowed leg). He was fine this morning, but is sort of gimpy on it this after noon. Linda checked his feet for stones and found only that his grooves are very deep and his heal seemed tender. There was no heat or swelling. She did apply some coppertox just in case there was any thrush growing in there, although she said she didn’t smell anything foul when she picked the foot out. We both think he might have an abscess coming. She’s going to give him a gram of bute and see if that helps him feel better. We’re going to play it by ear and see how he does.
