gypsy is lame =[

i rode gypsy on sat and she was PERFECT. but when i came out to ride her yesterday [sunday] she was a little off on her left front, not every step, but about 75%. i had my vet out today and she pulled her shoe and snow pad [full pad on her foot, not the rim type.] we figured she had an abcess, but she couldnt find one. some puss came out of her frog, so we are treating it like a frog infection. if she hasnt improved by thursday, my vet wants to take radiographs to make sure its not a fractured coffin bone =[

im so worried about my girl

You have a vet that knows how to pull shoes? Right on! I had to wait until we had the farrier out to pull a shoe once, drew out the diagnosis. Anyways, hope your horse is ok.

thanks !

im also worrying bc i talked to my vet again on the phone last night [we are pretty good friends] and she said that she thinks part of it might be my farrier ! gypsy has some cracks in her feet that she got about a year ago when i tried to pull her shoes and her toe got long. my farrier also thinks the cracks may have been caused by not enough protein in her diet. my vet wants me to use her farrier -who ive used in the past but i dont like how he shoes. he is a natural balance horse shoer, and he makes the toe so short that the horses he does are always sore the next day....i just dont know what to do. im just really hoping she doesnt have a fractured coffin bone =[

Really? That shocks me. All the vets around here have pulled shoes for me. Heck, even I know how to pull a shoe! Lol

Gypsy, I hope your mare's feeling better soon.
