Aww ğck !! That is SO COOL!!! If the prosthetic hurt him a lot his head would bob with each step, that's how you tell if a horse is hurting, and then of course, which leg is favored, which step he bobs his head on is which leg hurts. You can see a limp but his head isn't bobbing like he was in pain, ğkking awesome!!!

I know how they feel, I had a young (3 week old) filly with a compound fracture of her back right cannon, we fixed her. Far as we know it was the first time a foal has ever recovered from that injury. And the tears flowed when she came out of confinement at 5 months old.
