    After a little over one year..

    Finally this horse that got signed over to me is getting some decent hooves.
    His front hoof looked like swiss cheese on the bottom. The entire toe was gross.

    This horse was left by a boarder who could not afford her horses, so she signed the horse over to me, and after threats by her, and her bad mouthing me, telling people I stole this horse from her, how he was not lame etc etc..
    Over a year of pasture turn out and various products to stop the major infection in his hoof..

    He has finally gotten a halfway decent hoof on him. YEAH..

    I respect people and almost never talk behind their backs. Unless they've told others some nasty untruths. Then I figure I owe them nothing. I would copy the paper that she signed over the horse, laminate it, and put it in a busy area or the bulletin board.

    I left a barn after 4 years a few months ago because the Owner's daughter/trainer accused me of being stupid, and spreading untruths. She has many new boarder in there that have their horses in training with her and pay much more than I did without training. (clients with money). It was a no win situation, her being the owner's daughter, and bringing money in. I am not stupid and do not offer any opinions, and don't talk about people. But remaining there, I would be looked upon as being less than honorable, and can't do that. For some odd reason I must have felt like a threat to her and her "queenly-ness".

    I would have to look for some pics.. hope they did not get deleted. The front section of the toe was dead 2- 3 inch wide and full of little holes. She left the horse said he had some thrush..

    I no longer board to people. To much hassle, this is my home .

    Any one who has contact with the person after a short time realize she is full of it. It just annoys me .

    pic of the toe

    Acorn... this is one pic I found. The pic of his sole on this toe, I got to close and its not clear. You can see the swiss cheese on the toe, that went on his sole about two inches
    And that strip of toe was discolored , cannot see in the color variation in this pic .
    No, they are not nail holes, no shoes were on him . I don't have an after pic, it poured here today. We got rain.!

    Wow, I never had a laminitis horse , I have seen horses with the waffled ringed lumpy hooves
    But never the swiss cheese.
    He does get the runny poos easy, especially with Any type of hay, does best on pasture grass.
    He does not get any grain , he does get a small handful of sr feed .
    He is lame again, got a stone bruise and it turned into an abcess, that has been popped , so brought him into a pen, an he stands in a spot where he pees and poops. Back to the hoof disinfectant and thrush meds. And now it rained so everything is muddy .
    The swiss cheese holes are gone completely.

    You might want to get some radiographs of his feet to have for two reasons: first as a baseline to compare with future X-rays to monitor any changes if needed, and

    Second, to evaluate the actual health/condition of the his coffin bones. If he is continuing to bruise or abscess and the bes have already suffered some damage around the lower edge then you may need to change your hoof care protocol a little to better protect them from further damage and stop the bruising .

    Patti, he got a stone bruise while out on the pasture.So we brought him up
    Had him trimmed cut most of the bruised spot out, but he stands where he pees and poos and now has the abcess. He has ringbone/arhtritis issues and he is in his 20's and has had the 'original' problem for quite some time, from the 'gossip' I have heard, the horse had not been usable for 3-5 yrs before being left at my place. Just wonderful. If he stays lame he will go meet his maker with a couple other of very old horses that I have that are just going down hill due to their age . I am not doing anything until March ,and with the Vets recommendation( as they are getting to that point,) they will be Euthed. Better than suffering
    And I wont send them to auction or slaughter.
