Poor Kai had a few hoof abscesses this month. We have been treating them and all are healing up well. We are working him in boots, and that seems to be helping with his front foot tenderness. He is holding a good weight through the winter. We are looking into getting him some bodywork to help with his physical strains. The area that needs the most attention is his left sacrum, which can get tight and cause him muscle discomfort. We had a donation of acupuncture in the beginning of December that really seemed to help loosen up the area. We are looking forward to seeing if a repeat visit has the same effect.
