    Chances are Cloud got really cold and that has made her foot worse. I'd keep her indoors, wrapped and warm until she starts to get round on her own again. Give her SuperBoost, 1/4 tsp to 1 gallon water every 24 hours just as a precaution to illness. Its a mix of vitamin, minerals and a general antibiotic. Keep an eye on her for other problems that may arise. Good Luck.
