It's at the tip of the sole right along the wall. I don't know why she's abscessing this is her first time doing it for me but I've only had her since November. It was healing fine the first time so my farrier said it should be fine to not soak her foot anymore, but now it's worse. I am a new horse owner so I am still learning everything. That's why i asked if she'd be fine to shoe for a while to get that foot off the ground and all. She'll definitely have to go back to being barefoot afterwards tho because shoeing is wayyy expensive but if it will help my girl i'll have to do it.
