I recently got a new paint filly and her feet obviously were overdue for a trim when I got her, and she has 'seedy toe' in her heel (I know it's not called that but anyway)
It's only one heel, on her near foreleg, but it's fairly deep and she is quite sensitive when I pick it out! I don't want to hurt her... Is there any way I can clean it out so I can pack it without digging too far? Or should I just dig it out as much as I can and pack it with the copper sulfate? I've been told to flush with hydrogen peroxide also so I may try that today.
I can't get a farrier for at least a week so I want to treat it as much as I can right now!
I'll take pictures today
