At this stage, Dr. Kemper believes the extreme soreness in his feet is due to severe thrush. Bucky will spend the next few days at the hospital for observation, as they begin work on bringing his long feet -- and thrush -- into a more stable state. Our concern at this stage is that laminitis doesn't begin to set in, which is still a concerning possibility.
