Something is wrong with my horse....

My trainer just called and said that Nikki isn't putting pressure on her front left hoof. She said that there is a little dried blood around the coronet band and possibly a small crack but that's all she can see. There isn't any bleeding happening right now but she won't stand on it. So my trainer is taking her up to the vet's office around 3 this afternoon so they can look at her when they get a chance since nobody can make it out to the barn since it's so far away. More to come, just please keep her in your thoughts....

Where is it? On the back of the hoof? If so it's possible that she nicked herself.

Keeping her in my thoughts! Hope everything turns out ok!

Thanks guys. She was bleeding in the front around her coronet band. It could be a nick but I don't get why she would be standing on it. I'm hoping it's nothing big and that it is just a cut and she's just a big baby about it. She'll be at the vet around 3 but I don't when they will actually get to see her.

Hoping for an update soon. I am guessing an abscess..

I am with appyt, I will nearly bet it was a burst abcess. Here's hoping your girl has a quick recovery. ((hugs))
