Today, it's my turn again--my turn for bad news. I found Beautiful Girl limping.
No heat, swelling, abrasions. Nothing. I'd say she's 4/5 to 5/5. She can walk a little on the back right, but doesn't want to bear weight. She's eating, drinking and acting normal, except for the lameness.
I put her in a stall and observed her until I had to come to work, and I'm going to have my farrier come out and test her hoof for an abscess.
Wish me luck.
