Well, it turns out that Jimmy has a soler abscess. While he is much more comfortable on the bowed leg now that it is wedged up with two wedge pads and a shoe, he is still NQR on the abscess foot. Due to the long term healing process (daily soaking, etc.), Jimmy has gone to another foster home south of Indianapolis which specializes in daily care. He’ll be able to get the attention he needs in order to heal the foot. And when he’s cleared for working, he’ll be back to my barn for under saddle training.
In the mean time, I may or may not be getting another horse in. We’ll have to see what comes through the doors of FFI. 🙂 Stay tuned!
