Desert- the swollen legs or toeing out? She toed out when she came to us the second time around, I don't ever remember noticing it when she first came to us. The swollen legs are new. She came to us swollen but not quite this stocked up. They arent all that warm though and after talking to the vet he thinks it has a lot to do with how much time she's been spending on the ground. Hopefully as she gets exercising and standing on her own more it will start going down. I'm going to try soaking her legs in a warm epsom salt solution but I don't want to hydro them with a hose because its so cold.
Stevenson, I knew it was just a matter of time before someone called out my age xD funny story though, I'm a bit 'stunted' just like she is, and not normal height. I went through a really bad spell where I was way underweight and not developing as well, and I only matured at 4'11. We're similar in a lot of ways xD
I am quite young though. I just turned 17 on the 24th and I've been blessed to have a great BO who is willing to let me take great responsibilites dispite my young age. I've been out here since I was 12 and I love helping rehabilitate these guys and seeing them start a new life. I'm often told that I look like I'm barely 12 or 13, and I've even had a few ask me if I was still in 6th grade xD I'm completely used to it though and it makes me laugh. And I have the feeling Kenzie might just have the same situation as I do when it comes to growth and age guessing! We're a good pair.
Celeste- I'm sure hoping thats the case! I'd love to see her sound and strong, not crippled and weak. She deserves it.
Everyone in your life is meant to

them are meant to stay till the end.
