Thrushy Feet - How's this look?

Iím just looking for some input on my lease horseís feet. The BO told me he has thrush so weíve been treating it with thrushbuster. His field has been pretty dry up until that whole Sandy thing came through out area. Things are starting to dry back out, but still a bit muddy. I only see my coach once a week so Iíll be able to talk to her about his feet when I see her Thursday. Until then, can anyone let me know how the soles of his feet look? Is the peeling frog good? Sorry the pictures arenít great, taking pictures one handed is tough! Haha


Oh ya, been treating for about 2 weeks.

There we go! ahaha, his hooves look like they are a litte soft on the frog, his frogs look like they are just getting through the session of getting better...just keep it goin with the thrush buster and you're horsie will be as good as he could be..this of course just until your farrier comes :) just keep an I on him as well, clean them as much as possible.

Thanks!! I'm glad they look on the getting better side.. it's hard for me to tell.. the frog is so dark and .. err... mushy?? and th pictures dont help, im sure.. they're pretty dark themselves.. Thanks again for your input ;-)

Hey no problem dear! ;)

i assume you're putting the thrush treatment in those large cracks/holes in the middle of the frog between the heel bulbs as well, right? that is also thrush there that most people tend to miss. ;)
