Bruised Soles... no pics. A little Frantic.
This morning I received the news that Sky's feet are all bruised on their soles. It has me rattled because I love my horse dearly but he may need to get shoes.
I felt silly calling up the vet to ask her what causes soles to bruise and she told me being on hard ground.
I need advice, I need support.
The farrier wants to wait 2 weeks to put front shoes on because Sky is going to have more people riding him this week. He isn't sore, but there is bruising.
I was thinking of buying him those trail boots.. the ones you snap on to the bottom of their hooves for rocky terrain to see if that helps him. Or does anyone else have any other ideas?
I'm really shook up. First horse and I have limited experience with farriers and vets.
