A White Christmas

Lewis has been stall-bound for the last three weeks with our early snow fall. He still takes twice-daily walks about the garage, but there is no fresh grass to be found! He is reluctant to stand on his healing leg, though he walks easily. The callous forming around the bone appears to result in a difference to Lewis that makes him not want to stand on the leg. We don’t believe he is in any pain at this time as pain killers do not alleviate his reluctance to use the leg. It is still a few weeks before complete healing can be assumed, so we will keep his activity confined until then. He enjoys visitors as a welcome stimulus to his long days of confinement. He also enjoys having his back, neck, belly and all four legs scratched vigorously, and this has become part of our daily ritual!
