We've been wearing the softride boots since Monday and she's been doing really well with them. She will still stand with a foot out some of the time but she moves much, much better. I take her out in the big pasture for a walk when I can. Tuesday she got a little ouchy about 3/4 of the way down the pasture so we turned back but then on Thursday she and I walked all the way around twice without a problem. She of course likes to steal grass on the walk but it hasn't seemed to cause any flare ups. Her attitude is much improved as well. She's still using her hay as bedding and scarfing down the grain but I'm almost out of the marsh hay so she is going to get something new soon anyways.
I called my vet to discuss what comes next and all of the changes I have made but she didn't call me back yesterday. I'm disappointed because I have a lot of questions and Magic really wants to get out of her little paddock. I'm going to go and buy a grazing muzzle today (if the tsc by me has it) so she can go out for an hour or so.
At the moment she is getting a 1/4 cup canola oil, 3/4 cup omega horse shine and 3/4 scoop of tscs equine senior (nsc 19%) twice a day as well as a hoof supplement. I'm going to discuss other brands of grain with the vet. Triple crown has a senior that is 13% but I don't have any experience with that brand. I just ran out of equishine multivitamin so I have to get more. She is tolerating everything really well and licks her bowl clean. I'm trying to make changes slowly.
The farrier will be out in 3 more weeks for another trim and we are hoping to get things more under control before winter.
