The Peanut Butter Man

This picture is the day Peanut came to live with us, Christmas 2010.

Sadly, he foundered recently, and the coffin bone rotated. But, he is now much improved, thanks to his vet, Dr. Jones, and his ferrier, Michael Crowe.  Dr. Jones brought his portable x-ray machine, and spent several hours examining Peanut and consulting with Michael.  Together, they developed a trimming strategy to get his feet at the correct angle. He also gets a daily dose of Equicoxx, a coxib-class NSAID–to help with pain and inflammation. And, of course, there is always some peanut butter to help the medicine go down!  He’s a happy sight to see him trotting across the pasture these days!
