Just wanted to update everyone, Nugget is doing pretty well. He's been on hay cubes and hay all week and today the vet came. I've treated his scratches with Desitin, which seemed to just make him itchier, maybe it was locking in the moisture?
This morning my vet came, she floated all my horses' teeth including his. She put his age at about 18, which is better than what I thought (25). His teeth are pretty good. She said a betadine scrub would do his legs good and said I could start him on Ration Balancer right away. She also thinks Canola oil is my best option for weight gain, so I've started him on just a tiny amount in each hay cube serving which will gradually build to 2 cups a day. I'll also be adding MSM for his joints.
So I continued with his hoof medicine and scrubbed his legs with betadine and brew dry them to make sure they were extremely dry, then I used a baby's anti-itch powder, in hopes that will help keep him from bothering it a bit. He's definitely feeling better, much more spunk! I'm still taking him for daily walks too :)
Nugget getting his teeth done :) and my other 2 horses nice and sleepy from their tooth ordeal :P
Getting his legs blown-dry after a good scrubbing!
Going for a nice walk around the driveway :)
