It's weird how little pieces of the Lester "puzzle" have seemed to come together.
We've changed farriers yet again. But this time we are going with the flow and are going to use the barn's regular farrier. This will make life easier on everyone, but I will miss shoeing time with Ronnie a lot though, he is such a character and was our farrier for over 15 years (he used to shoe my mare too). He taught me so many new words like "faheater" and "shawr" :-) He never let me down and was always reachable. I'm going to really miss seeing him every month:-( I think Lester will too.
So having a new farrier shoe Lester this last time was telling. He was no better and no worse than if Ronnie had done him. The "issues" have never been his feet and the way he had to be shod, I think it's been in his back this whole time.
Less has always had this little white "bird dropping" looking spot on his back. You can see it in the pic below. You know how places of injury can grow back with white hair... it just kinda makes me wonder now.
