HELP abscess problems/questions
I have a mare who about a month ago stepped on a nail from a board the other horses had chewed and pulled down. I got that all healed up and a couple days ago she started limping on her other foot. Had the farrier come out this morning and check it out and she has an abscess on the other foot now. He says he thinks she just stepped on another nail, but I picked up the board and checked to make sure we had gotten all of the nails. Other than stepping on another nail, could anything else be causing this? Should I be concerened that there is something else going on or am I just lucky enough to have a clumsy mare???
