Bruising has to grow out in order for the discoloration to disappear. Once the the hoof grows out and recovers the bruising will go away. My mare gets stone bruises quite frequently during early summer. She's usually ouchie on the foot for a few days, but after that she's fine to go about her regular work schedule.The pain goes away quicker than the color. As long as your horse isn't obviously lame, I wouldn't worry about it much.
Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.
