The ring is very hard and I only trotted in the ring, but moved to the fields to canter and work on other things. Yesterday he was slightly lame but worked out of it and was better as he went. Today the ring was completely dragged and in much better shape and he was mildly lame.
I am not familiar with splints and unsure what to do. While the splint was not hot, it was still slightly tender. We think maybe the location of the splint is causing him to be lame since its close to the tendon. Today we tried to blister the splint in hopes to finish the calcification that is already occurring.
Ideas thoughts? How long will he be lame?
