No large animals... I'm so amazed by how much better he's doing n one day! His foot was so blue looking and so swollen it was shocking! No blue color at all today and the swelling has went down some. Woo... I think we dodged a bullet! I'll be sure to not let him out to free range for a long time... So he can get plenty if rest although his injury happened in his pen... I wish I knew exactly how but I can only guess. I think for now I will switch out his big pool for a much smaller pool I have so he can get in it easier with his bad leg. Gosh I can't express how happy I am his improved! He's my kid for real! I remember the day I picked him n his mate Cali up from the post office. I used to sleep in the same room with them and sweat like crazy from the heat lamp but I did everything perfect to make them imprint on me... Which worked like a charm! Clyde doesn't like much but he LOVES me and Cali... Lol... They r almost 4 yrs old so I have plenty of time left to enjoy them.. Although this leg issue had me fearing the worst! My heart is smiling he's doing ok... What a blessing!
Awesome news. Yes put a smaller pool in for him so he isn't jumping down to the ground on his injured foot maybe considered making a ramp or putting some kind of steps for them to get in an out of the pool. My dh cut me stumps from trees he felled so they have a way to get into the pool and use them to get out.
