I'm inexperienced in young horses, and looking for some advice.
It's been raining a lot here lately, and we had rain again just last night. I brought the filly in on cement as the pen was really muddy and she's been acting a little foot sore. Occasionally dragging her hooves. I cleaned her feet good and scrubbed them out good with a soft brush then put a little hoof flex on them. I kept her on the cement for about 6 hours to give them time to dry out. She's back in the pen now as I have nowhere else to keep her untied.(for now)
I should add that she's only been with me a week, and was found running loose on the highway last Saturday. She ate quite a bit of young grass before I caught her and the next day though having no where else to keep her. I then began tying her out to eat high coarse grass during the day,(likely what she had been eating before. And penning her in a small area with short grass at night. Starting Tuesday, she's been on mostly hay. The pen where she is was taken down to bare earth yesterday and she's now exclusively on hay.
Is there anything else I can do? Anything I'm doing I shouldn't?
