Cinny, the other thing that helps is to take sharp scissors and cut slits into, or narrow triangles out of, the duct tape hoof wrapping - pointing toward the center of the duct tape and ending where the wall of the hoof would be. That way you can fold up the sections of duct tape without all the extra wads of tape to deal with; the sections are 'flaps' that are neat and easy to fold and overlap to keep the tape on the hoof.

Looking Good. Today's temp is 89.5. There were a few tiny spots of blood in the bandages but nothing too bad. No funky smell today.

Compared with the other foot there is very little swelling, yay.

Honestly that looks like one of the best wounds I've seen!

You're doing great at treating him, I'm sure everything will work out better then the worst case your thinking about. Although I totally understand your fears!!

What kind of ground stuff are you doing with him to occupy him/you while your not riding? I am looking to learn some ground stuff to work on with my horse but I've not been very successful!

So far I have mostly been doing "carrot stretches". You take a treat and get them to stretch (without turning) and touch their flanks on both sides. There is also one where you try to get them to stretch down towards their front feet, and if you can, eventually put their nose between them so that they have to raise their back during the stretch.

We have also been working on a very basic "touch," where you take your carrot stick or some other object and teach them to touch it with their nose on command (this helps with stretching too). My next one will be to teach him to hold something in his mouth and then I was thinking of graduating to maybe shaking a baby rattle, or hold something else.

At the Kansas City Zoo they have elephants that paint and I thought it would be really FUN to teach him that. Basically the elephant is just taught to hold the paint brush and then move it up and down against the canvas with their trunk... it's not really super fancy. If I can teach Cinny to hold and shake something, the only thing left is to teach him to do it up against the paper, canvas, whatever. Who knows, maybe he can demonstrate at the fair LOL.
