Well, Houdini seems to have learned how to manage his splint just fine, and I take it that his leg must not be hurting all THAAAT much. Little booger got out while I was cleaning his pen (he earned his name honestly) and took off at a dead run. On all four legs, I might add, splint going thunk-thunk-thunk. (He's in a splint up to his hock.)

He managed to clear the tongue on my trailer with a good 18" to spare and with very nice form, jumped a block of wood, danced on top of same block of wood, did some sideways acrobatic leaps, bounced around the yard for several minutes. Taunted the dogs. Took grain to catch him.

I suppose if that leg doesn't have enough lateral stability, we can always wrap it in a huge bulky bandage to his hock and vetwrap the leg to the stifle and he'll do just fine then ... *sigh*!
