    OH MY GOD! Mate, I am blown away by that foot! I can't believe you're just concerned with the abscess when her foot(feet) are in that state! That you've not recognised how deformed it is. You need some SERIOUS help for her NOW! It's far & away out of the realm of a forum to give much advise of what to do in in a situation like this.

    Interested to know how long she's had such profoundly damaged feet? How old is she? How is she managed & what fed? When was the last time she saw a farrier or vet(obviously not in recent months)?

    I would be finding the best vet you can, who is experienced in serious hoof pathologies, getting x-rays and be prepared for potentially a lot of expense. Then the prognosis may be hopeful.

    Holy crap...I agree with Loosie...

    That foot is terrible...you are looking at months upon months upon months of corrective specialist work to fix her foot. If I were you I would have panicked and freaked a long time ago...when was the last time she saw a farrier?

    If your only concerned...then you need to start studying about the proper condition and build of a good hoof...cause honestly that is absolutely horrid...

    WOW. How could you never have notice how bad that was before now? Do all her feet look like that? You need some serious help by a PROFESSIONAL
