He walked in nicely though and I started grooming him, while waiting for Toni to arrive ... and so we could assess how he was.
He walked OK - but, was hopping lame in trot. So, she bandaged his front legs. I have bandages, that he has used once before, when he travelled, but they are good ones, so can be used to support the legs as well as protect him.
I trotted him up and still as lame.
So, Toni suggested he stand in his box for a time, to see if the bandages would take the pressure off his legs and he would be OK ... and gave us time for coffee!! (Acyually I ended up helping her move some furniture around!)
Anyway 3/4 hour later we went back ... and he was better, but still lame. So she had a think and decided it would be best if he stayed bandaged for the rest of the weekend. He is a bit of a twit, and havinig new horses in the next field means he is not resting!
So, I fed him a carrot and walked him back to his field ... so he could show off how well his royal blue legs worked!!
