I would put down some shavings or pine pellets for stalls so it could soak up moisture and keep that filled up and help dry out her stall. it sounds like you are going to have a problem until the melt is gone. maybe shavings on the bottom to act like a sponge and then straw on top ??
If her feet are spongy and she is starting to get an abcess, i would pack the hoof with antiphilogestine or any drawing type clay type poultice and wrap her foot , with cotton and vet wrap and then use a lot of duct tape to make a final exterior wrap or boot.

when she goes in at night her stall has wood shavings and she does not pee in there she holds it all night so it stays dry and clean all night.I just can't leave her in all day she is not happy.My hubby is fine cutting off what needs to be done on the frog and she was trimmed 6 weeks ago and is always trimmed on time.I picked up the stuff and started all ready.She has horrible hoofs we have been battling her hoof situation since we got her in Aug(she was not kept trimmed).She has chunks missing and splits going up the hoof my Ferrier says there is nothing we can do that it has to grow out on its own(and it grows so slow on a clyde) and just keep doing her feet regularly.I am starting to wonder if there more we can do to get her hoofs nice?Any ideas

Iodine is brilliant for thrush, i'd wash and clean out the hooves then spray it on

Alright.. so I've been having a bit of trouble with a touch of thrush in my horse's hooves.. I've been searching and searching and reading on the internet and have found some information...

Firt off. Infection can be 3 different types... yeast, fungal, bacterial.

Here's where I'M confused... I've read that soaking a hoof in Apple cider vinegar mixture would do it, or just spraying straight ACV on would also help with a yeast infection. For fungal, Borax and Lysol.. I've also found that Iodine would probably treat the bacterial. Iodine is supposedly cheap and would be an easy route. I've also found the Pete's goo...

Would ACV do the trick? cause if so, I could reach into my cuboard right now and have my hands on the stuff.

I've found this site.... It actually says towards the bottom that Thrush is actually bacterial but that people tend to call all foot infections thrush. : Treating Horse Hoof Infections Thrush Bacteria Fungus and Yeast

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question!

I believe there are lots of different thrush pathogens out there. I've found that iodine (providine) worked well for me one year but not the next. Bleach worked well up to a point then I had to switch to coppertox (thrush-XX is same thing but $10 cheaper). With thrush, everything always, 2x day. I tried Pete's goo several times but it never worked here for me.

Right now, the thrush-XX is what's working here and it's also melting and very muddy, yucky manure insulating snow piles wet wet wet paddock. I pick out, brush the hoof with a stiff brush getting everything I can out of the way of the thrush and pour. The coppertox/thrush-xx is moisture resistant.

Whatever you try, if it's not working after 2 weeks, switch to something else.

Good Luck!
