His Shoes are off (:

So I got indigo's shoe's off and he got trimmed.
Thank you shay-la and niki for Ethans number ! he was great
He had really good hoof's except for some bruising, which should go away, But he might end up forming an Abcessces (sp?) on his right hind hoof.
So, what can you tell me about them ?
How can you prevent them ?
Just anything really.
Im going to bed, so this will have to be quick.
Tomorrow i will take some new photos of him, confirmation photos and photo's of his newly manicured hoofs

I dont plan on putting any shoe's on him until we start to do 'heavy' stuff... So hopefully his hoof's will get more stronger ! who know's how long he had those shoes on, they were kind of rusty on the top and the nails too. :(

But so far everything is good ! Other than the bruising and possible Abscess.

Wait!
You got him in the very beginning of November and you said in that initial post you had the farrier out that very first day (or close to it).

Are these shoes from before you got him and you have let his feet grow that long? Or are they from your farrier?



Poor horse!

Why is that?

Any horse at any time can get an abscess. A single grain of sand can cause one.

the "rust" is not really any indication of how long they have been on. shoes that have never been on a horse can be "rusty" if the package has a hole in it and you get air and some moisture in there. steel shoes, any kind of moisture will cause that. same with the nails, if they get wet that will happen.

Poor horse!
Yes i had gotten him in the beginning of november.
My farrier was out when i had purchased him, he had mentioned that he looks like he had his feet JUST done.
But my farrier did not do any feet work on him, he was a really bad farrier.. He did not know how to properly trim and didnt handle the horse properly, so i have a new farrier.

His shoe's were on when i had purchased him, i do not know when he had last gotten his feet done when i had gotten him... This was the first time he had his feet done while he has been with me.
His feet are not long, but they needed a trim and he needed his shoe's off.

Please do not make Assumptions which you know nothing about, learn all the facts, Thank you..


And to MLS>>
I do not know why he could POSSIBLY get one, but the farrier said it was from past bruises... He never said one has formed yet, but there is a possibility, so i have to keep an eye to make sure he doesnt get them...

And Honey: no pictures yet (:
