    Thanks you guys its been a tough I had abcesses dug out so can't undo that maybe it wasn't right choice but its the one I made.

    He doing better so guess it was right a lot more then just abcesses going on also dealing with laminitis on top of it. Never thought id be dealing with this its hard to deal with I feel like I don't always do what's right.

    I have no one local to help only my vet and not sure she's always on the up and up but she's all I have. Iam struggling with all that's going on there are days I just do nothing but cry so yeah it tough. He's been super sick on top of it all so just one thing after another. Now I think ulcers are an issue again so yep never ending.

    Got some easyboots Rxs for him and gel pads to put inside boots. He's alot more comfortable and moving much better now just slightly gimpy. His feet have been trimmed so toes are nice and short as are his heels.

    Holes from abcesses being cut out are closing up and no more draining. Vet was here this AM and was amazed at how well he was doing. Now just have to work on getting his weight back up so he doesnt look like a rack of bones.

    the farrier

    My horse had an abscess on his hind hoof so everyone told me the best thing to do was to ring the farrier so the farrier came out today and said they heeled on there own I put him out in the day because they might have popped naturally and they did but before and after it popped I scrubbed it with hibbi scrub and put a vet rap poultice on it to keep it dry I hope this helps. If it doesnt pop ring the farrier to take a look at it and he should pop it or give you advice

    At least he is improving. You can still put a poultice on him, then the pads. The poultice will help draw out any lingering infection. Get a good low starch feed for him. Good luck with his continued healing.

    He's on tc senior problem is he's gone on grain strike has ulcers again is being treated.the holes aren't draining any more so I think it should be ok....not to poultice. Improves a little every day.

    Can't be without boots on he's very sore without boots and pads yet.

    I'm really glad that things are improving for you. It is never easy to not know exactly what you are dealing with and then putting pressure on yourself to make the right decisions. It's much like life.

    I think your horse is extremely lucky to have you around. It's pretty obvious.

    My very best to you both
