    I totally lied when I said I would stop spamming.
    He is doing great, he is teething and everything is going in his mouth. Farrier is coming today, for the first time, and he is going to have his feet handled and looked at, maybe filed a tad if needed.
    Pnemonia completely gone!
    He is out 24/7 except for meals, and wears a jacket from dusk to dawn.

    It is worth clicking on the two that didn't load, I promise.

    That picture (and the one where he grabbed my sweatshirt!) is my favorite. He went to get up but his foot was 'stuck' under the tub, so when he pulled it out it crossed, and he just sat like that forever! I about died laughing at him. I think he understands laugher.
    He is learning 'no', and 'good boy' pretty quickly. . . I am optimistic he will be a gentleman for the farrier!

    So Quest was (almost) the perfect gentleman for the farrier! He was on the halter for a VERY long time, and got a little fussy toward the end of it all, but was very good.
    The farrier initially said we wouldn't touch his feet, just look and disuss his future, but when he looked. . . "Man, he did a lot of growing, didn't he?"
    Ended up trimming all four!
    The front foot is indeed starting to (or is already?) club, and the hind foot was doing a thing that was doing another thing (walking on his heels? Something about his pastern angles? Toe too long? Many words) and will need close attention. We will watch it, and if needed next time he will walk me through how to rasp it correctly between visits.
    Calypso has a mild case of thrush on the back feet. I have been instructed on their care.
    Calypso was not super thrilled with the whole ordeal. Quest had to be in full body contact AND within sight AND where she could touch him AT ALL TIMES NO EXCEPTIONS NO EXCUSES.
    We tried to insist otherwise for about five minutes, and then just gave in and let her have it her way.
    But, all in all, I was very proud of them both. Especially little dude, who was such a good boy!
