Thank you! Unfortunately my planned voyage did not happen. Bandit has some kind of nasty looking wound on the bulb of his heel. I don't think it's an abscess as he is not unsound in the least, it's two circular lesions about an right an inch apart, one is worse and kind of pitted. It's a little swollen around his pastern and tender, I put some ointment on it to keep flies away and am hoping this horse stops being such an ISSUE! On the plus side his other miscellaneous scrapes are looking better and no new ones. I'm hoping one of these days I can ride again... Last night and today was a bad time for me and I was really looking forward to getting lost in the woods for a few hours but alas it was not in the cards. SOON with any luck!

Sorry about your luck!

BTW if you get one of those nylon headstall and matching nylon breadycollar deals from Jeffers or ValleyVet - it'll run less than $30... and those cheap padded nylon breast collars work great with all of my various styles of bareback pads.

Not all abscesses present with lameness so abscess is still a possibility. Poor guy, I hope he heals up quick.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I like cheap! However I have a list of things I need/want for my endurance pursuit so I figure I might as well buy one I really want. Probably going to go with a biothane type material, cushioned would be nice!

I feel this horse has such potential, and it's the first time in seven years I've had a riding horse, so I am feeling pretty disappointed one thing after the other is poppin up. But such is life and I just have to roll with the punches and do the best I can to help him. If it is an abscess it does already have an opening, I'm assuming it'll heal on it's own course and I'll do what I can to help keep flies out of it. I'm also thinking an Epsom salt soak wouldn't hurt either. Tomorrow I am buying my own shavings, I'm going to try and get the pelleted ones as there is virtually no dust. He certainly is not minding the vacation and peppermints!
