A horse we have has an extreme case of thrush and several other hoof problems..We bought him pretty recently and I'm pretty sure his problems were just neglected by the people who had him because it's really bad and we've been getting help from everyone around us: vets, farriers, friends, and online, but it still hasn't really gotten much better.
We're having issues getting him better because he lives in a paddock (he doesn't do well in a pasture) and he is constantly standing in his own poop (not a cleaning problem by the way; the stalls do get cleaned every day..he just doesn't move to poop or pee and stands in the same area all day)
What I thought of is maybe we could get him some hoof boots and leave them on him while he is in his stall so they will stay clean and dry. I don't know much about them, though, so I was wondering if that might work..
I don't really know what else we can do. We've been told putting him in a pasture would probably help but that's not really an option for him at the moment..
Thank you very much,
