I would say just keep doing what you are doing; watching for heat, swelling, keeping it clean, etc. It doesn't appear to be infected. Perhaps get some antibiotic cream into it if you can.

My farrier came out and did feet today. He checked out the cut and she didn't seem to mind him fussing with it. That's good!

Little concerned with the black stuff, not knowing what it is, but perhaps it's just whatever ointment you're using? Otherwise does look different but not bad at all - I think it's likely just periople. I wouldn't stress at all, but given your comment above, I'd focus on more training, so in the future you can indeed treat whatever part of her may be necessary without... unhelpful behaviour. Feet are important for owners to learn to deal with, as aside from just checking & picking it can often be necessary for owners to treat feet for infections, etc.

She's a pro with her feet. She'll stand for hours getting messed with so I'm guessing with a reaction like she had it hurt pretty bad for the first couple days. She had a nasty case of bleeding scratches and open sores under her feather coming into me and stood better than my clyde getting spritz with the stingy stuff to clear it up.
The black stuff is packed dirt and mud. I couldn't get it out very well and that was the day after. She was pretty tender when appyling pressure to that but didn't seem to mind much today. Just shifted her weight a little bit.
