I think it looks great and if he's sound then go for it. I have yet another one I'm doctoring too. Almost two weeks ago we had a cold front moving in and they were all feeling their oats and started chasing each other. My greenie was on the receiving end of the chase and ran full speed up to a cattle panel, stepped through a lower square, broke the weld on the horizontal wire and then promptly stabbed himself with it as he yanked his ankle back out. It didn't look so bad at first but it was deep so now that the granulated tissue has filled it in and spread it out, it looks worse than the day it happened. It has flattened out though, and it's under control and I've been lightly riding him because after about a week, he showed absolutely no sign of lameness. I'm hoping the exercise will keep it from stiffening as well. Sigh....it never ever ends.
