Toby was put on heavy medication while the Daehnriches monitored his health closely — and he eventually started to feel better.
“His wounds are healing, the swelling and infection are going down and he now has a routine,” Alesja said. “As he walks out of his stall, he goes straight to a baby pool, which is way too small for him, but he loves it. He lays there with his butt hanging out. We hose him down — he probably thinks there is an automatic sprinkler system that hoses him down every time he plunges in his pool. He also loves the pond we have, and you would often see him bathe in there.”
