I will definetly keep that in mind. However it would be atleast 4 weeks till we could put a shoe on, as the cast covers the bottom of the hoof as well

Oh wow, ouch :/

My friends gelding did something similar to this, and then he lost half his hoof and always wears bellboots now to prevent him knocking it (he's a BIG clumsy boy)
On the upside though, he was a gp jumper before the injury, and is back to clearing 1m30 now!!
So here's hoping the injury to this horse heals nicely too!
His hoof is funny now though, but he's alright :)

I wish the best for this horse! That's a tough injury but I feel with good care this horse should be alright.

Thanks everyone. We are gonba have to recast monday morning. As the cast is really rubbing her. So, I will be sure to get pictures. Even though it will only be 4 day since we cleaned it the first time. Poor girl is getting tired of her antibiotics already. She still has atleast 2 1/2 weeks to go on them.

Ouch. I was thinking the cast should probably be changed at least every other day. I know I'm not a vet, just speaking from experience. With my mare the cast they put on her was actually made of the same material that a persons cast would be. They had planned on leaving it on but there was so much drainage that they ended up cutting the cast in half so that we could remove and rebandage every other day... for 6 weeks.... :(

I hope the horse heals well.... yucky stuff and no fun...
