Still in surgery and putting a shoe on his good foot for stability so I am hoping to have word in the next hour. Around 7-8 eastern time. I promise to post as soon as I know. ??

Great news so far. Surgery went well and they have put a plate and 16 screws in his leg. This took well over 7 hours and getting up took another few hours(I did tell the vet he will stay down as long as he could).Dr. McCauley and his staff at LSU have done a wonderful job in a complicated surgery. I am a bit emotional after seeing him stand on his own and bearing weight on all 4 legs and then walking to his stall. Now we have to hope for no infections and that no laminitis sets in. Keep praying(its working)as he still has a long way to go. I will be back tomorrow to check on him. OH and he ate some peppermints!!

I'm shaking I've been so worried.  Yes, prayers and positive thoughts to continue.  I think Buff needs to be there full time with the pillow and peppermints!
