What a heart breaker! Trace hobbled around the common area all day before I realized that he wasn't putting ANY weight on his leg. But he moved around quite well on three legs. Mind you, this little guy is about 5 weeks old; his whole life in front of him. I had to help him.
Needless to say, catching his wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. He could move on those three legs. But catch him, I did. Our vet Dr. Amy Betka xrayed his leg to locate the precise break. YUP, Trace had broken his leg BUT it was a good break. (That had to be good.) Even a 'good break' still hurts.
She put on a cast, gave some pain medication, then sent us on our way.
Back at the ranch ... everyone was curious about his cast.
