First really bad chipped hoof
Our ankle deep mud has become sharp frozen ground overnight. My mare nicked a big flap of hoof wall at some point this morning.
I have never done any thing major to her feet so am wondering if I should attempt to rasp or cut this flap off-realisticlly, I won't be able to get my farriwr until Thursday - and not sure something this minor is a good use of his time. Is there something straight forward I can try to remove the flap? If this seems within the realm of someone who is not a hoof expert, would appreciate specific instructions! Thanks for your suggestions
PS- if this is a must-get-the-farrier thing, I absolutely can and will.
