    I am almost 100% positive that you are dealing with a case of deep sulcus thrush, I have a gelding that has it and is improving nicely with a thrush powder called " No thrush" Its amazing and all natural so it doesnt harm the delicate new tissue trying to regrow:) My horse is also lame on his right front from this and I am taking him to the vet next saturday to see if there is anything else that I need to do other than what I am already doing. I clean his hooves everyday and apply No thrush, and he stands in his stall for at least 30 minutes which is dry. I live in Michigan and we are having a VERY wet spring and this thrush came from outta nowhere:( I have been in the horse business for 25+ years and have never had one with thrush ever, let alone this bad of a case!

    I think any of the dish detergent will work. Dawn is just the most popular and the gentlest. You don't want any with that bleach alternative stuff.

    Along with the thrush, I'd be concerned about how she's being trimmed and how her feet are growing.

    Even though she was just trimmed a couple of weeks ago, I still see some things that lead me to believe that maybe even your regular farrier isn't doing that great of a job. Of course, I'll hold final judgment until I see some really good pictures, but it looks to me like she might long all the way around and likely has some seriously under-run heels going on.

    Can you post some better pictures of her feet from the bottom and also from the side with her standing on a mat/board/concrete?

    Here is a guide to show how to take good photos.

    That right front is for sure deep sulcus thrush, and how long has it been since you had a trim?! I hope you started a thrush treatment tonight...Did you say that you horse is lame due to this?

    That's the thing she was JUST trimmed on 4/13. And yes I put the 50/50 solution in there and packed it with cotton balls until tomorrow.

    She's definitely sore, but moving freely throughout the paddock. She is on 24/7 turnout in a fairly dry paddock.
