    My Pony **Recovery**

    So I decided to make a journal/picture thread of Chinga's recovery. So it is really a waiting game at the moment to find out what is wrong. His having five days off complete work then he will have light walking work. I won't be on him for at least two weeks.

    Day 4 (No Work) -

    As you can see no really constructive pictures today, just took some artistic-ish ones.

    Why would you be on him in 2 weeks, when he's supposed to be going to the trainers?

    So you believe it's an abscess, right? That's what the initial thread suggested. Have you started soaking his hoof in epsom salt? If you haven't, I would start. It will not in any way hurt him, it'll just draw the "icky" part out. At this point, think of the abscess like a zit. You can pop it and get it over with, or you can wait and wait and wait until it goes away on it's own. Soaks should be done with warm water, and for about 15 minutes once or twice a day. Also, cold-hosing is pretty useless after the first 24-48 hours from what I've heard. It mostly just makes us horse owner's feel like we're helping, lol. Sorry to be replying to your initial thread in this thread, but I'll end on a thought relevant to this particular thread; I really like the first picture. He sure is handsome. =]

    At the moment there is no absess formed in the hoof so soaking it in salts is pointless. But I have been taught how to hoof test and do it every day so soon as one develops I will know about it.

    Hoof testers don't always indicate an abcess. The best thing to to feel for heat and soreness and soaking it in a bath of salty water is good too after you've had a muddy couple of weeks. It kills bacteria and it really helps if he has any greasy heel, mud fever etc.
