Hello From Bernie, and His momma(Sue),
Bernie has his new shoes on now thanks to Janell! We got the shoes on Saturday. Our farrier came on Sunday. Gave Bernie a trim and then he put Bernie's shoes on. He doesn't like foot ware! I think he looks handsome.
I got the pain medicine from the vet on Monday. Wanted the Doc to see the fancy shoes. The doctor was impressed!
I have to brace Bernie's right legs. They were the worse ones. He would turn his foot to the side. They are coming back flat. I think the braces will be on for a little while longer. Janell, THANK YOU soooo much. I know that your shoes will work.
The left legs were much improved as soon as Bernie stood up for the first time on his shoes! I know that pain management is so important. Bernie's whole body has to learn to walk correctly. He was real sore yesterday. Last night, and today he is not limping as badly.
We keep him in our fenced in 3 acre yard with his mother. I think if he were in the stall he would stove up. His mother moves from spot to spot very slowly. She will stay with him until she thinks he needs a fresh place to graze. She is a wonderful mother.
Janell, You are making such a big quality of life change for Bernie;-) I know that this part of his treatment is a temporary pain. When his legs are corrected his quality of life will go way up. You did that for him! You have been the answer to our prayers.
Oh my I have rambled too long. You all will fall asleep before you get to the end.
Janell, Bernie sends hugs & kisses to you & the Biscuits!
Sue & Bernie
