My rescue TB has been limping on his left front foot, its warm and you can feel a pulse, so we are thinking abcess right? Well we tried soaking for the fist 5 days, along with packing it with ichtha something, still lame, thinking its really up high and let nature take its course.
Now its been 3 weeks, and he is still lame, improved walking, but still limps. Do abcessess really last this long or longer??
The only other thing I noticed, was this bump just above his hoof, and was thinking if it could be ringbone(its really hard and not soft,does not bother him if I touch it)? Could this also cause the limping? He is currently barefoot.
Its taking forever, would really like to get riding him
