Ellie Moo got poop all over the bandage on one of her splints. So I took it off to wash it. Which gave her a little time to move around without it. She can walk without going down on the joint!!!! She is not ready to go without them but I am so happy. I have been seeing the progress of the leg getting straighter but to see her walk without going down on the joint made my day!!!!! Christina, any time you need a rough lick from a cow, Ellie Moo says just come for a visit! And every body else that has given advice, Thank you!! I haven't had any luck in finding her a buddy. The wether I would like to try to put with her is scared of her, at least for now. But she does have a barn full of critters to keep her company, chickens, ducks, goats. And horses outside where she can hear them. (((((( HUGS ))))))))) to all of you!!!!! I am just so happy right now. Her bandage should be dry so it is time to go put it back on .
