Thanks for the reassurance Samm. I've been redoing the bandage every 2 days, which probably doesn't really help - I just want to SEE how it's going!! (Now there's an opportunity for someone... see through bandages - you'd make millions!). I might give Phil a quick call to see if there's anything else I could be doing. I'm going away for several days in December, hope the worst of it is sorted out by then. Otherwise I'll have to impose on my friends (yet again) to come and treat her while I'm away. I'd better start grovelling... Gamblin - we have to sever this connection between our horses! How did the elephant leg thing turn out?
