Well, we had to call the vet out. He is walking on his toes in the front and on his fetlocks with his rear legs. The vet thinks he has contracted tendons in the front and stretched tendons in the rear. He couldn't stand long enough to nurse and mommy wouldn't let him leave her front end. Nursing doesn't work that way. We finally got some of her milk in him by milking her into a syringe and letting him suckle off that.

It's going to be a long day or two because we're going to splint his legs and we'll have to help him get up. At least until he gets a little better.

Going out now to get some more pics before the vet gets here.

Awww... he is cute. I hope the little guy recovers quickly!

:( hope he gets well soon! He's a pretty little guy!

There is no sport like barrel racing. It requires more speed than a sprinter, more balance than a gymnast, more grace than a dancer, and a stronger team than football.

Here's more pics. I can't get ones of him standing because I would have to hold him to steady him.









The vet made it out and confirmed that it was due to his tendons. They splint the front legs and wrapped the back ones for support. We now have to go out at least every other hour to stand him up to try and nurse. If that doesn't work, we have to milk the mare and feed him ourselves. The vet hopes that this will only take one week.

Thanks. For right now his name is Rocco.

We've had some people comment on FB that he's a zebra mix.
