Hi everyone! I posted yesterday and got a ton of great responses so I thought I'd give an update with some better photos.
1) We have a new farrier coming to see my horse on Wednesday - could you guys tell me what I should look for in a proper barefoot cut? How will I know if this new guy is any good?
2) We put his cavallo hoof boots on him this afternoon and his slight favoring of his front left immediately disappeared! We left the boots on him overnight so I will take a look at his feet tomorrow. Should those boots be left on 24/7 until the farrier comes?
3) Looking at the new pictures, is there anything you guys see that I should take note of? Anything I could be doing to help him until we get this fixed?
4) Should he be ridden or lunged at all? I don't know how much this bad cut will affect his tendons?
