Well, farrier canceled due to bad weather (snow!!! in Oct. geez!!) But the good news is, I have found a small hole starting to open on the bulb of his heel. I put some more Icthomol on and wrapped it up (in Whinney the Pooh Diapers-what humiliation for the poor guy) I really believe the sugardine mixture brought it to the surface, I am making some more tonight and I'm going to do another poultice on him (more Pooh diapers I'm afraid) He is starting to put more weight on it, I am soooo hoping the abscess "pops".
The hardest thing about riding is the ground.
