I brought my horse in last week and noticed he was limping a little in the hindend and so I gave him the weekend off thinking it would get better. Well today when I brought him in I noticed some mud on his hoof and went to go pull it off and it wasnt really mud, some of his hoof wall came off with it. I went ahead and pulled the rest of it off and it was very soft and wet almost where the hoof was coming off.
So I don't know what is going on, I've never seen anything like this before. He has heat in his foot and his leg is swollen. His heels are also very soft and wet also. He hasnt been standing in mud or anything and no diet changes. It seems like a bunch of different things could be going on but just not sure about any of them.
Anyone have any ideas?
