    What Can I Do To Support My Horse?

    My mare's hoof has the sole by the frog on the bottom... so when she walks she limps. She looks as if she is always in pain. Is there anything I can do to support her? I am having a vet and farrier come look at her so they can examine her, but I was wondering what this is called and if we could use her for anything? I will get some pics soon.

    I'm not sure what you mean about the hoof, but you are doing the very best thing for your horse by getting professionals out to tend to her. Do what they suggest and best of luck to you.

    Is your horse foundering? If so, I would use some kind dense foam or padding that you can cut to fit the bottom of the hoof and tape it on until your vet and farrier can get there.

    I hope that isn't it, but even so, if feet are tender and ouchy they need a softer surface. You can provide soft footing by bedding a stall, tho I don't like shutting a horse in with ouchy feet either. Or if you can provide soft footing in any way that will help. Hard ground hurts if feet are tender.
