In my last post I took a quick look at the journey that Lilly's errant hoof has had us on. It has been a road trip fraught with pitfalls and triumphs, ignorance and learning, patience and more patience. In all honesty, Lilly's feet are part of what make her uniquely who she is, just like her dazzling painted coat, her solid composure and her quality snugglefests. But those feet. That abscess. It all beckons a closer look.
After all, it wasn't Lilly's fault that she happened to get an abscess so dastardly Ivan the Terrible would have wept with compassion for her, was it? It wasn't just the abscess that made it so bad, it was everything it caused in its wake.
This video Bill made is particularly instructive about the repercussions of the dastardly abscess:
Here's another of the Superfast which, in my opinion, was quite the lifesaver:
During all of this supporting of the hoof, life went on...
So you see, it was more than just an abscess; It was the best of times, and the worst of times. Sometimes both at the same time!
With Spring around the corner, we are feeling hopeful and happy.
Here's to you, Brumby!
