It can be so frustrating when you can not be there and you have to depend on someone else to get all the information. I know when I am the one there I am sure that I always miss something important and I feel horrible when I do not write down something and then later on can not remember what it is called. Thank goodness the vet leaves a nice written report.

When you look into the treatment protocol let us know. I am interested in the theory and what it is treating, etc.

I haven't had a chance to contact my farrier yet - after classes I went straight to the barn and than came home to get caught up finishing assignments to only realize its now 10 pm. I can almost confirm that this is seedy toe - I did some googling and mentioned names to my mother and she believes this is it, as she also mentioned that it was 'hidden' by the shoes.

I can also add that by talking to my mother - I was going by what my mother told my sister (mummy has now left on a holiday). Chinga being forever taken out of work - would only occur if NOT treated. *sigh, all that concern for nothing. Although at least it is a relief that this has a 100% chance of not happening.

I'll still be calling my farrier to discuss and confirm.

Doing my own research however I have discovered, the Vaseline is very commonly used with Copper Sulphate and that it actually removes some moisture from the affected area. I feel frustrated for not picking it up sooner - though he showed 100% physical soundness and there really were no visual signs. My farrier was surprised that I did pick something was up - so I guess this is better then leaving his hooves another few weeks until their due date.

Sir Success. Eventer.
