Yes, Nathan Fans, what you are looking at is a horse that is muddy on both sides of his body. Why is that odd? Wellllllllll, if you recall, when Nate first arrived, he could only get to his feet if he slept or rested on his right side. What you are seeing here is a horse who is able to roll around in the mud on BOTH sides and get up under his own power. Bravo, Natey!
Baby steps for some, leaps of faith for Nate's supporters! Thank you to everyone who encouraged us to not give up on this grand gentleman.
(Note: Nate is "pointing," or standing with one foot in front of him, because that foot is still a work in progress. Two days ago, Nate's heel was lowered a little more, and his sole and frog pared back as needed, so he may be feeling some tendon stretching and some "new" sensation on the bottom of that foot.)
