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. ;)
