Benny - navicular/lameness. Lameness seems more in left hind/right front, and left hind had a tendon injury, so continued rest and will revisit treatment and options in spring if he doesn't get better.

๐Ÿฅ• Behavior ๐Ÿฅ•

Lucy - in pasture, calm and friendly. Much calmer when bonded friends removed from pasture and accepting attention even in a group of friends without aggression. Has been accepting the halter over her nose and not showing any aggression when her friends are removed and actively seeking attention from people. Goal: Dakota Showdown 2024 prospect.
Kody - in pasture, calming, and curious. Physical condition fully rehabbed, working on friendliness. Is being caught and brought in, and had his first (lightly sedated) meeting with the farrier.
