Taz....He's A Special Guy

Here is Taz....he hasn't been able to use his back legs properly since birth.
The vet believes it is spinal trama or congenital narrowing of cord in the lumbar region.
He can stand on his own for 10 to 15 minutes, with our help. He can't get up on his own. Here he is in his sling. He really likes this, as he can move around without falling over.
His mom is so wonderful. She knows that we are trying to help her baby and hasn't offered to hurt us. She stands very still while we work with him and as you can see has made herself available for feeding.
As of tonight, Taz is being treated at the Colorado State University Vet Hospital. They can do more for him there, and also he is getting too heavy for us to lift. He has taken a lot of extra TLC and time. I am hoping to get back to painting soon! We are almost done calving and I saw a few blades of grass coming up in the pasture yesterday....WHOOOOOHOOOOO!
