Bad Infected Quarter Cracks

we claimed a trotter for $7,500 a week and a half ago. the night he raced that we claimed him, he finished 3rd. when we got him after the race we started work on him til the next week when he had to race. after he raced for us for the first time he finished 4th, not bad.

anyway since we got him we found 3 horribly horribly bad infected quarter cracks. ive never seen any so bad. there was one on each front foot and one on the back right. my cousin is a blacksmith so he cut them all out, they were so bad. tons of dead foot, and wall separation. after they were all cut out we put bar shoes on him and put patches of animalintex wetted with genesin (gentafuse) and wraped them on the cut out cracks. we are planning to paint it with venis turpentine for a while, and reducine to make them grow out. also we started him on a biotin supplement.

anyone else have any advice? ive dealt with quarter cracks before, but these are rediculous. the previous blacksmith never cut them out and so they just became more and more infected and got worse and worse. so if anyone has any adivce of what worked good for them, lemme know. this horse can be so much better than what he was because his feet hurt him so bad. thanks

sounds like you are on the right track to recovery. just make sure you don't have any vertical pressure on the crack
