So just as an update for everyone:
Farrier came and said the degree on her trim was almost at 60 but he cut her down to 55/56, trying to bring her closer to the 50 degree mark. He said he didn't see any thrush when he trimmed her, so whatever I've been doing must've worked. I switched from the 50/50 to tea tree oil, since they had it at buy one get one at CVS. He did say her soles are a little soft, and suggested I used a 50/50 mix of alcohol and iodine. I'm buying it today, but since it's raining I'll wait until it dries up to use it. Or should I use it now?
Overall I have definitely seen an improvement in the way she moves and puts her feet, even if she was a bit sore from the trim the first few days. I'll ride her hopefully Friday and see how she does.
Thanks for everything everyone!
