For those of you that have been following my mare's recovery I have a 6 week update.
Here is a link to the other two threads leading up to this one :)
April's cast came off on July 25th. She was really swollen at that time and very lame on her foot. Last Sunday I decided to take her outside for a little hand grazing (she was getting a bit restless with 6-12 steps a day) and the more she was out the better she was flexing. I called the vet and got full permission to hand walk/graze for 20-30 minutes a day. Over the last few days she has progressed on putting weight on her foot and actually walking on it.
I have to change out her wrap daily and rinse her foot off. Starting on Monday the vet has instructed me to keep it uncovered and to clean it daily. We are currently using betadine on the foot and on the video that I have posted April was off from bute for over 48 hours.
I have also posted a couple of pictures. The foot has betadine on it (giving the orange look). The swelling is down about 70% from the 25th of July and on the base of her hoof it is starting to harden. If April keeps healing well I will be able to allow her out on limited turnout (in a week or two). I am just super proud of April.
