My mare, Flower, has had about six or seven abcesses in the past two years I've had her. One in the front right, two in the back left, and the rest in her back right. They become much more recent since April, and we thought we'd put back shoes on her hoping that would help. We haven't been able to get them on yet. But I've been thinking before we do, that we should get x-rays done on her feet to see if there is something structurally wrong with them that's causing her to get so many abcesses.
Do you think it would be worth it? It would probably only cost around $200, and if there is something wrong we can (hopefully) do something to help it. Have any of you had experience with a horse abcessing so much? Did anything help them?
