First of all i'd like to thank you for clicking on this thread to read my particular issue with a race horse that i'm having problems for a few months now.
Apparently Soho (5years old) has a wound right above the coronet, at start we thought it was from his training causing his back leg to hit his front left leg.
As it turns out with all the precautions we took and observation while workout we was mistaken ..it seems that the wound is caused by training in the track causing the skin to rip slowly each time.
In a single week the horse does trot once a day for 4times, 1day a short distance of canter and 2days of the week he would rest
We also gave him at some point a resting period of time around 1month so he could heal completely, but once he went back to training the wound would casually start to open again.
Its become frustrating for us and the horse that we don't know what to do we also brought 2 farriers that both seem to done some kind of special care with the hoof and a vet that gave us some medical prescription of antiseptics and skin care creams, but the results are the same and of course will get worse if we push the horse in to heavy training.
any suggestions or questions are most than welcome.
also uploaded few photos so you could get a better visual.
Thank you in advance
