Coal Update #2

Day 5 - 10/12/15

Coal's overall demeanor and attitude continue to be pleasant.  His body condition is still obvious, but his appetite remains voracious.  He was wormed with a 1/2 tube of Safeguard on Saturday, and will get a full dose later this week.  He is still loving his boots, although he is not as comfortable as he was on days 3 and 4.

Day 6 - 10/13/15

Coal has gotten a little less comfortable today still, even with his boots on.  I gave him a little bit of a trim (what I was able to accomplish, he wasn't able to stand with 1 foot in the air for more than a few seconds at a time).  Since Day 3, he has been spending all day every day on turnout in one of the sacrifice paddocks so that he can move around.
