Sulci bruised by rock
I'm looking for some advice. My horse went to gather cattle today and a stone got stuck in his sulci. The part between the frog and the bars. It doesn't seem to have broken through the skin, but the poor old guy is very lame - it's a front foot and he's quite a big boy- weighing in at about +400kg's. Is there something I can do to help him? Vet said I can give him some Pennicilin if the skin is broken, but don't really have any other advice. He's not fond of a stable, but was thinking of keeping him near the house where he will be fed and don't have to forage or go far for his water with just one or two calm horses for company. Would that be ok, or would stable rest truly be best?
