Poco Burro Update

Poco had a halter on for the first time and had his foot X-rayed. Our veterinarian thinks he is okay as he is, nothing can really be done and that he is fairly comfortable. http://www.jersanctuary.org/horses-and-burros/poco/
X-rays show a congenital deformity. He is missing P3 (coffin bone) and he grew a hoof over P2. There does not appear to be an infection. The vet said it is very unusual. So, we know our little Poco is one amazing survivor to have made it 11 years in the wild with this handicap. He is now acting very happy here, and even bucked a bit this morning.

    I’m so glad he’s not out there struggling anymore. His luck sure changed!

    I don’t supposed you could post his x-rays?!

    He is lucky you found him! I hope to get them to email me the X rays Monday so I can share then. TY, Terry!
