Good news this morning. It appears Eric's injury is not career-threatening, just a bit bloody painful.
Marcus arrived to help me take a first proper look at the trotter and one part of the hoof was hanging off. Think of losing a big toenail and you get the picture. I held a struggling pig, while Marcus clipped off the hoof and checked for infection. There was none.
A gentle wipe and a few squirts of antiseptic spray and the lad was allowed to scurry back into his corner where he eyed us both warily. He is now to be left alone and quiet for a few days to get back to match fitness. To say I'm relieved would be an understatement.
