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. Very Happy 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!

Very Happy Bravo

Thanks,

Sue & Bernie

Thank you.

Janell is such a great person to do what she does for these little ones.

Her shoes are making a difference in Bernie all ready. First couple of days were so hard on him. Pain management is really the only way to help, and leaving him out so he can walk often.

Just love those Little Magic Shoes Love Exclamation He is walking even more today.

Such great news about Bernie. I am so happy you got shoes on him. Glad he is moving around better. The shoes will help straighten his legs and help him have a better life in the long run. So glad you are both here with this great group.

Thank you Cathy.

We are so Blessed to have found Janell. Bernie is turning out to be a challenge for her. His right legs were so bad that he was turning his feet to the outside and walking on the outside edge of his shoes. I have to keep him braced on the right. Her shoes are working faster than I ever would have imagined. Very Happy

If someone could tell me how to post pix on here I will put some on. You would see a dramatic change in all four of his legs. The left ones have never looked better. I think this forum is a wonderful place for information on these special little guys!

Sue I really apologize for not getting some of your pictures posted of little Bernie. Crying or Very sad

I copied the information below from our section called sticky thread and and announcement or somepin' like that, maybe this will help?

I wish we could just upload pix from our phone or computer, like we can on FB, but I guess we are stuck with the old way of doing things here on the forum. Crying or Very sad

Go to Little Bit's and click on "new topic", in the box write something if you like about the picture you want to post, then MINIMIZE Little Bit's website and go to the place where you store your pictures on the Internet (I use Photobucket)
Only registered users can see links on this forum!
Register or Login on forum!

Find the picture you want to post; there will be 3 different long boxes underneath the picture, LEFT click on the bottom box that has "IMG" in front of it and that will highlight the writing that is inside the box. Then RIGHT click on it and LEFT click on COPY, then go back to Little Bit's and LEFT click in the BIG box and then RIGHT click and click on PASTE, then click on "preview" to see if your picture is there. If so then click on "submit".

Another way of posting pictures is like this:

Find the picture you want to post and LEFT click on it, it will take you to a larger version of it, then RIGHT click on the picture and another box will pop up, LEFT click on PROPERTIES. Then another box will pop up, LEFT click on you picture's address(URL) and hold the button down as you highlight the picture's address(URL) in blue, then RIGHT click in the highlighted area, then LEFT click on COPY and then LEFT click on OK.

The address of your picture should be in between the two...[img]....address of picture..... [/img], like this.

Go down and click on PREVIEW and see if your picture appears in the post. Hopefully it will! If you want to add another picture to the same post, just minimize Little Bit's website and go back to where you store your photos and repeat the process all over again.
If you are still having trouble posting your pictures, send them to me at

Thank you Bridget. I feel we are better for having him in our lives. He teaches everyone he meets that being different is great! I will try to figure out this picture thing later tonight. photogragher

Bernie has had his shoes on for 1 week today. He still does not like them. His left side is doing so well Very Happy , the right is just going to take time.

Thanks,

Sue & Bernie
