Exclamation Need advice now fillys hooves are bad

Okay the filly I just rescued is WILD not shy not wary but WILD, and her feet are in horrible shape they arnt turned up or anything but I think they are making her uncomfortable, I want to know, seeing as how I can't wait long enough to gentle her to do her hooves, if there is a way to mildly sedate her to trim them and give her, her shots, coggins and basically have the vet check her out, I was going to have both the vet and the farrier out at the same time. PLEASE HELP this fillies life may depend on it!

Yeah, they can sedate horses to do their hooves and routine vet care. Call up your vet and discuss your options with her/him. There are definitely sedatives that they can give your horse depending on what needs to be done and just what sort of thing she needs.

Kudos to you for taking on such a project! I hope you are able to get the vet and farrier out at the same time and she's able to relax and allow them to help her.

I really appreciate the info, the farrier ill be using is the farrier that does all the vets horses, LOL so we should be able to arrange all of us meeting together, she is still really skinny though, I just don't know if it would be to much for her to handle, heck the closest she'll let you get to her is her nose so far, any closer she litteraly spooks and bolts and I had to take her halter off becouse the guy I bought her from kept her tied out for 2 weeks because he couldn't catch her, and the halter started growing into her nose. Thanks Again!!
