    stage 1 lame.

    Well my farrier hoof tested Diesel today and determined his lameness is most likely soft tissue hoof. His heal in his left front (same leg I had blocked) is very tender, he has filling in the right tendon from over compensating and wond puffs from not being able to use his body correcty. He said most likely not navicular because it is only in one hoof. But could be tendinitis. Or a couple other things... I will be getting a hoof block done as soon as I can. But right now he got two front shoes that are called natural balance and will help relieve pressure on his heal and help him break over easier... Anybody with the same kind of experience? Any ideas on what thos could be?

    I don't know how long the lameness has been going on but I'm wondering about an abcess festering. I've known of them to keep a horse lame up to six weeks.

    You can only see an abcess once it bursts. And once that happens typically the pain is relieved. There was another poster on here that had a lame horse that ended up being an abcess even after xrays showed nothing.

    What causes abscesses and how long do they typically last?

    My farrier did a hoof test and found sensitivity in his heal though...

    Many things can cause an abcess, they can blow anywhere so he could be sore in his heel now. You can soak in epsom salt everyday to see if that helps draw it to the surface so it can blow out.
