Cracked Wall with (possible) Absess

I say possible, because I'm no vet. But the wall of my filly's momma's hoof is cracked - badly - and has a "bump" in the center. It's close/on the cornet and it really kind of worries me. I have Hoof Flex, and I was wondering if anyone has used that to fix such a problem.

I was also wondering if there was anything else to be done about this so she can heal quickly so she may be exercised.

There is also a gelding with cracked hoof walls who I will use Hoof Flex on as soon as I can catch him without him freaking out and giving me rope burn.

I plan on getting them next visit if I can. Sometimes they run away, sometimes they don't.

Horizontal or Vertical crack?

If horizontal then is a "gravel" abscess blow out and it'll just have to grow on down. If Vertical well pictures would be of more help.

All the cracks lead to one center, so it's a big, round "blown out" looking spot on the hoof. I do intend to have pictures, but I was hoping I could find at least something I could do for this mare next time I see her. Which may be tomorrow.

I'd venture to say that's a "gravel" blow out, and you'll have to let it grow on out. Putting topical treatments such as White Lightening gel can help keep it clear of "bugs" but it usually just grows on out with no further issues.

Okay, thank you. I'll take pictures to show everyone just to be safe.

It is is an abcess, cleaning and soaking the foot with epsom salts might draw it out.

This is a pretty new picture. So here ya go. Comments, thoughts?

I hate seeing this hoof, and him thinking she's just fine to ride. No she's not.
