    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 .

    I took the camera back out with me. I don't know if any of the stills will show how good it looks. But I did take some short movies of her walking!!!! She can do a full circle and then some without it going down. Everytime I got near her to put the splint back on she started bumping me looking for the bottle. It isn't feeding time yet, so I am going to wait to re-splint until after I feed her. I did call the vet and ask if I dare leave it off, he said to keep it on her a while longer. I am just sooo happy!!!!! She is now 34 days old. The walking time bomb can now walk on her own, at least on one leg!!!!! :) :) :) :)

    You made my day!! Wait until the kids here this one tomorrow!!! I thought the idea (I think from Agman) of a goat with a bell was a great one. Maybe that wether will cooperate yet. You just take those hugs of yours and give them back to Ellie Moo from all of us.

    I hope I do get the chance to meet Ellie Moo "in person" someday!
