One of my 2-yr old Stars was limping so I checked it out. She was surprisingly docile, letting me poke and prod without a peep or a cluck. I felt for embedded stones or hard objects but there just seemed to be a hard mass at the base of the middle toe that looked like a bunion. Since I had some self sticking bunion pads handy, I put one one. Am observing and hoping it helps and that she does not pick it right off. Here's a picture - would appreciate any information that would help me to help her. Thanks.
