Lack of care? Um, no. His feet are well cared for.
In fact, thats what makes this bizarre to me. His last trim was 3 weeks ago, on July 26th. So recent I fear calling in for another trim would leave him to short. And as I said before, his rear feet have never had a problem (never been rear shoed, no stone bruising, ect).
Anyone know if trimming him again would cause more sensitivity? Would he benefit from shoes even though he has never needed them on the rear before?
If it is white line, is this something the farrier can help with or should I be calling a vet? I have a treatment for thrush that my farrier recommended to me, it says it treats white line too, but if that clears the bacteria up, what should I do for the chipping?
