My horse has been sick for over two months now. Swollen legs that eventually popped and most of skin died off. (maggots included). After two dfferent types of antibotics Doxycycline and Penicillin he began to get better and new skin slowly began to close in around the leg. Then, I wake up and find him walking on his (ankle, sesamoid bone?) in the left front. I have a farrier come out and build a corrective shoe for him and he started walking alright on it for about a week. This morning he looks to be going back even with the shoe on. I love the guy and he has never stopped eating drinking or walking and has a pretty good attitude about it. He hasn't give up so I haven't given up but he has to get back on his hoof.
