    Hey there...
    Well I hope your horse is doing better today! I will send out the Good vibes for a good x-ray! I am sure this is all very stressful.
    Hang in there!

    It may be. I have no clue what it is. And thank you.

    Right now? No. But, he has a high risk of going permanetly lame, and that brings up an adequate reason for him to be down. Right now, though, we are trying to keep that from happening.

    And unless you've seen his condition in person, it is kind of hard to call that "small" don't you think?

    I can tell from the picture that it's severe. I have never seen anything like it. I'm very curious what he did! That is awful and I'm really praying all go's well. When smrobs asked about the granulex (that's a medicine that comes in an aerosol spray). That's what she was asking, if that's what you used. Can they put some type of filler in it or do they need to keep it open for drainage?

    We aren't completely sure what happened. We have a good guess, but no sure clue. We were just confused when he didn't come to get his feed and hay one night(because he is usually the friendly one waiting by the gate).

    And I am not sure about all of the medical stuff(I let my parents, uncle, and vet take care of that :P) but we bought something to help rebuild his hoof or something. I am not really sure. They find it neccessary to leave me out because it might "hurt my feelings".

    Miracles do happen

    Poor thing. I feel for you. But please know that miracles do happen! Keep faith! My mare foundered and the vet did the normal treatment vs putting down debate. There was never a question for me, I choose treatment, literally lived at the barn in the stall with her while juggling my wife and mother duties. But I got my miracle, the vet and farrier both were blown away. If the horse as the will to fight, the will to live, that goes a long way. A good support system helps too, which it sounds like you have in your family. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you guys and please keep us posted.

    Oh my goodness.

    Have you and your vet consulted with a farrier on how to stabilize the hoof wall during healing? It's just going to take time for that wall to grow out.
