thank you for the advice..... I started a whole new plan today... first I really scrubbed them out with dawn antibacterial dish soap...surprisingly they were pretty clean still from last night...all the bubbles were white, so that was good... then I soaked his feet in the lysol and water...I did 50/50 (I didn't see your msg til now) but he stood there a good 15 mins on his fronts...backs didn't go so well...but the indent of the mat was holding a puddle under his backs so I just kept pouring the soak on the mat... I'm afraid it definitely wasn't as effective as the fronts...will do it again tomorrow.... after the soak, i sprayed his feet and again the mat with straight vinegar... then I used the dry cow on his frogs...it was very easy to insert the little tip into all the holes and crevices... then I wrapped his feet with baby diapers.... I taped the first one on with vet wrap and then thought maybe that would hold too much moisture? so I just used the diaper tabs on the other 3...see pics!!!! after I let me loose one fell right off...it was funny, he just stopped and looked at it, then me, like..."mom, help..." wish I had a video camera!!! well, I guess he knows I am trying to help him.... he was so good for the whole process.... I put the diaper back on and when I went inside a little while ago all four are still on..... I hope all this helps him.... and I do have a mineral block and salt block in the pasture by their water tub.... again, thanks for all of the advice...I will keep you all posted on our progress....
