Rusty is out lame right now. Due to our last shoer we had took his anger out on Rusty and was rough with him. He got sand up between his hoof and shoe. (Or at least that's what we think is going on) We are getting a shoer out here soon. Until then I am soaking his leg in a bucket of warm Epsom Salt water, and putting thrush medicine on him. Does anyone know of any other way we could help Rusty and cure his lameness. He can put weight on his leg but is lame on it. He is a bit stiff on it. He is normally fine on that leg. (He is 20 years) He has been lame on and off on that leg ever since the shoer. If you have any other ideas how to help Rusty's lameness.
The photo is of him soaking his leg today. He falls asleep when I put his leg in the water.
