Oh I feel your pain. Your lot looks way better than what we have now. I haven't even seen what it looks like since it rained all night last night. Poor Lizzy is stuck in her stall as there is nowhere to put her outside that isn't a good 6in of standing muck. I would much rather have delt with a fast thaw and flooding for a week instead of this muck for a month.

I think you put as much as will go in but I can't remember too well. It's what I would do anyway.

What I did was to just put as much in as fits. When it starts flowing over the top, that's enough.

We have had rain sleet and more rain their pen is worse then when I took pic a few days ago.

Looks like the 2 horses are going to be locked up for a while.

Easy enough will do treatments to night have four hoofs to treat.

^^^Yes. Once the ToMorrow starts over flowing, have your 50-50 mix of diaper rash cream and antibiotic ointment ready to "seal" the ToMorrow in.

Diaper rash cream (especially WalMart's brand) stays on the skin really well, in spite of moisture. That's the main purpose for using it; an added benefit is that it is 40% zinc oxide,another healing property.

You have to soak the hooves first, in tepid water and either betadyne or hibiclens. 10 12 minutes should be good. Pat dry with paper towels.

If you can do the zip lock bag and all the hooves at once, it will save you a big bunch of time.

I went back and looked at the pic of the duct-taped zip lock bag. The lady only duct taped the three sides, making sure the bottom had enough tape to where the horse's hoof wouldn't puncture thru it.

If your horse isn't home, or you work/school long hours, you can get by with treating once a day. Twice daily is a lot better for something this serious but, at the very least, don't let treatments go more than 24 hours:)

For folks that don't know about ToMorrow, here's a link but the description is only for its intended purpose of treating cow mastitis. I have no idea why it works so well on deep sulci thrush but it's almost too good to be true.

Do you have the authority and ability to build your horse a small wooden raised platform? Just a suggestion - get four 10 foot 2X10 boards and lay them out on edge in a box formation. Attach enough 2X6 boards flat on top to cover the top. Set the platform in the muck and tie your horse so that it stands on the platform. Clean his/her hooves and allow your horse to stand on the platform a hour or so after drying the hooves. It may not be much but at least the hooves will dry out for a little while each day.

^^Or put down an area or few of 'pea gravel', at least a few inches deep - may need much more depending on how much mud tho.

Yes I could do that its my own place I don't board my horses.

Ground needs to thaw a bit more lots of ice under that muck. Had them in for 8 hours today after I cleaned and treated hoofs. Hubby tryed scrapping it out with bobcat couldn't do much with it to icey and wet.

When I thought you were boarding I was going to tell you to pick up a rake and clean that out. I board, I pay $375 a month for that privilege, if I see manure, I grab a fork and clear it.

Why if your horse is on your property is it living in those conditions?

We plan on fixing the pen up better so I don't have such a mucky icey mess. My husband going to clean out manure good. Then have several truck loads of sand put down.

I will then keep the poop picked up on a daily bases.

Iam keeping them in for 8 to 10 hours a day so hopefully that will help. My gelding loves being in the barn. He wasnt so good about having his hoofs messed with. He came up a bit sore today.
