she hadnt, it was packed full of dried mud ! i picked them and washed them to check. i could not find anything !

i talked to a vet, not my vet, and she said that sometimes if the abscess has opened you cant see it because a small hole in the hoof can close very quickly. so who knows.

Yeah, gypsy, sometimes abscesses do that. Snickers has had a few minor which make him sore and then erupt in a couple of days, leaving him sound again. None of the minor has left him majorly limp, though.

Thanks, Prinella. :)

I visited Snickers yesterday after sunset. We had quite a long walk in hand through our trails - the snowy forest looks fantastic at night!

ya it was really weird.
its hard to believe that she could be basically three legged lame [she would hold up her hoof when standing] and then the next day be totally fine.

Has she showed any sypmtoms for bone spavin? It can be very tricky sometimes.

But sometimes horses are just horses and come up with completely mysterious injuries even if wrapped in bubble wrap and supervised 24/7...

That's right. As our horses live in huge 24/7 pastures, we really have no say on what they choose to do all day, and recently one of the boarders said - that we can never know, when they have minor colics or similar problems while they are out there. They just might experience it, get over it and meet us, completely unaware of what has happened, healthy again.
