Ok so Raine had horrendous hooves when I got her (December 19th) and they are slowly getting better now with a few big speed bumps along the way. Some of you may have seen my other thread about her heel falling off and her having it removed at the vet's surgery.
The photos attached are her near fore, can anyone confirm that on her heel bulb is where an abscess blew out? That's what it looks like to me. Whatever it is, i'm very much on edge about it. That's how it started on the near hind- the one with the heel removed!!! How the heck do I go about this, Im freaking out that its going to go the same way as the near hind. Im not even sure if I could have prevented it in the first place (vets opinion is that it caught on something and tore) Put shoes on to support the wall? Hoof boots? Wrap it 'just incase'?
Here is my usual daily routine:
Pick out hooves
Spray apple cider vinegar ( to clear up thrush that was starting)
Check for seedy toe (treat if necessary)
Paint on liquid stockholm tar
