Glad to see it is looking better :) I've seen some pics of some ugly wounds get back to at least useable, if not pretty. Look around horseshoes.com long enough and you'll find some. Search for z bar.

Wouldn't hurt to ask the vet and farrier about the possibility of laminitis in the other foot. Feet subjected to the extra stress of compensating for an opposing foot can have problems.

I am SO happy for you!! Your mare looks amazing and she was very lucky to only sustain an injury that didn't cut the tendons. I know that it sounds crazy to say she is "lucky" but its true.

Good luck with her, she is a beautiful mare. She definitely seems to be making considerable progress!

Gosh that looks awful! Well done for not having her put down! I hope the road to recovery doesn't have too many bumps in it. Bless you and her! XXXXXXXXXXX Good luck! X

Just got done and April checked out good! She stood well for trimming and both the vet and farrier were impressed by how she was walking and healing. The foot was trimmed and some tissue was cleaned up. The same shoe was used as well.

The bumps on her legs are just some fibrous tissue and might go away but it is more cosmetic then anything.

Thanks again for everyone's great comments :) I will post some pics later tonight :)

I SWEAR HORSES AMAZE ME!
I hope your girl heals 100% sound!!!
I hate when I hear stories like these, I can do nothing but cry, my heart goes out to you!
Stuff like this really hits home, my mare seems to be hurt prone. Everytime she heals it something else. I know how it feels to work so hard for something and just when everything seems to be going great the worse thing ever happens.
I know we all wish it could be us that got hurt and not our beautiful baby, please keep us posted.
Good luck, my prayers are with you!

Laminitis has always been a concern and at this point she has no signs of anything With her using her bad foot more and more it will take stress off her other foot.

I have posted a few pics from today. The first pic is the shoe off and some cleaning of the hoof and the pics progress to the shoe completed. The blood is from some granulated tissue that was removed. The tissue has tons of tiny blood vessels but little to no feeling. The vet and farrier wanted to have the tissue flush with the existing sole. April goes back in for a shoe reset/trim in 6 weeks.
