    My older production red holds up her foot and limps when she runs. One foot is swelled, no scab. The other has a scab but she is only sensitive about the scabbed foot. I am doing the surgery soon for the one foot, what should I do about the other?

    Just do the foot that you can see that there is bumblefoot present...leave the other one alone...for now. Watch that other foot closely! If it turns out to be bumblefoot you'll inevitably have to do the other one, too. Keep us updated!
