    Beautiful girl. Her weight does look really good.

    Love the bandages she does look good, pretty girl.

    Are you able to lift that foot for cleaning out her hooves? That is just me asking for interests sake, nothing else

    Thanks y'all. It has helped that we've been able to grow our own hay this year. This injury would have hurt even more last year when hay was so scarce for us.

    Yes, she's finally letting me pick her bad hoof up again. At first, she wouldn't have any part of lifting this foot or the other front foot because she didn't want to put weight on the bad one. Even a week and half ago when I started the equaide and the wrapping, I landed on my butt a few times because I always want one good wrap underneath her heel and getting her to pick that foot up for even a split second while holding a roll of gauze and trying to keep it clean in the process, let's just say I came out of those first few wraps looking like I wrestled an elephant. Now that it has healed up so much better, she picks it right up and I love to stand back and admire my wrap jobs. ;)

    My paint mare had that exact wound, with the exception of it was the opposite front foot. Her's healed completely in about seven weeks. I didn't stall her, just cleaned and medicated it daily, keeping it as dry as possible. She has a big scar, but is perfectly sound.

    Latest pictures if y'all aren't sick of me yet. The first picture is last week at 5w5d. Some of y'all probably think "ick" still but it had so much filling in to do so this is looking really good. Then the next two I just took today. It's been 7 weeks on the dot. It's really starting to work on skin now. And the ONLY reason she still has some sores there to the right is because when I leave it open, she likes to pick on the scab. Like a darn child!!! I ended up buying some quick wrap bell boots from Professional Choice. I liked those because they are smooth on the inside all the way around so I'm hoping we can stop some of the picking with these. Overall I'm happy though after 7 weeks. The vet told me it would take at least 4-6 months. I'm itching to get back on her but I definitely want to give her the time she needs. We'll probably start some round pen work as soon as those last sores heal over.

    Not very good with the whole cuts and stitches thing, never really had it happen THAT seirously, but my 4H Horse Leader told me to soak ANY injury in Epson salt water....when in doubt, soak it!
