    Thats SO cool that you used to live world huh? 8)

    OK... back on point.... I was really hoping you would come back and say what you did! ( I was really disappointed when we asked the old owners when the last time they were trimmed...Its a really long time to go between trims...)

    My farrier said that she was not going to be agressive with this first trim and that she would gradually take them back you are spot on correct there! She (farrier) is comming by monday to check the chipping. Then we have 6 week appointments set for the remainder of the summer to get their feet in shape.

    You're the bomb barefoothooves!!!!!!!! Thanks for the input and info...( I have the epsom salts on the counter! Lol... we are going to wait till it cools down outside a little then soak him) Thanks again....

    Oh... how long should we try to soak it?

    15- 20 minutes. Warm water works best, but cold will do. And it only has to cover the hoof, so it doesn' t have to be super deep. Try a deep rubber feed pan (can't hurt it!) but any bucket can work if you can keep the foot in it.

    Yes, it's a small world. I miss the's kinda flat here in Wichita, and no rocks! It's all sand and dirt (that turns to gumbo in all this rain!). I still travel back to your area and work (trimming) but I'm on maternity leave at the moment...7 weeks until "D day". LOL

    Good luck with the bruise and keep me posted!

    CONGRATS!!!!!!!!! Awwwww... a barefoot baby......I want pics!

    I have a black rubber feed tub that will be perfect for this! I'm sure we can manage 15-20 mins with his foot in the tub!

    My hubby went out to check Dumas' foot and he was able (brave enough) to go ahead and clean his foot really well...... He found more packed rock in the other side of his frog....SO.... I will definitely post here tomorrow on how he is doing.

    Hey, well last summer my horse went lame for 8 weeks due to stone bruises, he has been barefoot all of his life and for the first time last summer we had to put shoes on him. We figured that it was the on and off rain, just like what you described. If he doesnt get any better in a few weeks I would reccomend putting shoes on him.. that is what worked for my boy :)

    He seems better today... Not great but better.

    That's good to hear!

    Maybe he just stubbed his hoof, or landed on a rock while playing with Twister
