    Also our fields are muddy as it's been
    Really wet here in the UK and his field is a good fifteen minutes walk from his stable.

    My laminatic horse had abcesses dug out of his sole on both fronts. It took several weeks for them to heal. Holes are finally filled in I say it took about a month or so. He was able to go out but I have easy boots rxs made for rehabing a laminatic horse. So the boots kept his hoofs clean and dry.

    When it rained and got muddy he had to stay in barn mud did manage to get inside boots. His hoofs were a real mess though a lot of holes had a lot of abcesses.

    Yeah, my mare had holes too. That's why we wrapped her up every day. Duct tape, vet wrap and diapers!

    Wicks moisture away, keeps sole clean, helps contain medicine (if used), and cushions the foot.
    With a good duct taping job you can typically get 2 days out of it before they wear through the toe or heel.

    There shouldn't be any proud flesh - the vet shouldn't have cut into the live tissue. Where abouts is the hole? Assuming on the sole? Hopefully by now there's already a layer or so of new growth of sole material - it's generally pretty quick so long as no overuse of antiseptics, which can ****** growth - so risk of infection is greatly reduced & so long as it's kept clean &/or cleaned regularly, that shouldn't be a big problem. However protecting the area from further damage until it's thick enough may be a concern & in that case, a pad, boot, nappy... would be advisable. Sole abscesses frequently happen due to bruising - lack of protection for too thin soles.

    Thats not good at all that means he dug into live sole!! Real important to keep it clean and protected with a bandage. Also keep it dry.

    Find a new vet. The live tissue should not have been touched, much less cut into. IMHO, I would consult a different vet and put him on antibiotics, plus keeping it wrapped.
