Our buck is limping. Tries his best to *not* apply any footing to that rear leg. Just started this today.
Poor Jennifer had to wobble and limp her way out with us to check him out. Malachi is sooo Jenn's big boy :) Looks at us like we've come down from Mars, but wobble ol' Gimpy-Leg Jenn out there and he practically rolls on his back and pokes his leg in her face.
There's nothing noticeable between either rear leg, nothing injured, nothing out of the ordinary from a muscle rub either. Seems a bit tender for him around the lower joint (ankle area) but nothing too bad. Just isn't too keen on using his foot.
Any thoughts on what to watch for? LOL...don't get me wrong, if I have to, he'll go on a ride to the Vet. He's a very special boy around here, and coming soon he'll be having some special dates with my ladies out there. But really, if possible, I'd like to skip the ride in *the van* kwim? He is all buck...he's pushing 250#...did I mention he's a BUCK???
It's just not a good combination...my van, the carpeting, this heat and humidity...no no, not good...really, not good...
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
