proper lame...

it's either an incipient abcess, or she's pulled something during the settling in period ... either way, lame .. not noticeable in walk, but VERY clear when i went to lunge her, it not being raining! no heat to be felt anywhere. She wasn't feely when i picked her feet out - indeed, ability to pick her feet out without grief is great, compared to what she used to be like! so i don't think it's a bruised sole, might have noticed that at that point.

got someone to watch her trotting up, and conclusion is it's left fore. so we'll have to give that a few days to see what pans out.

apart from that .. she's all chilled out back in her old box. didn't move bar once, a long way from the bouncing round the box she did at blackdene!

you never know, i may even be able to do some flexions without it all going very pear shaped very quickly!

Sorry she is lame. Hopefully it will resolve itself soon.

Nice that Molly is settled in again so quickly. Apparently, she is much happier back "home."

How nice that she is settled back in so easily! But what a bummer that she is lame.
