Is This lameness abcess caused? Video included.

My palomino gelding went dead lame yesterday. Here's a video of him today.

Farrier is coming out later this evening.

Out riding my horse.

Can't see it. I hope your horse is ok. How many legs are affected? Abscesses tend to appear out of the blue in one leg, with the horse 3-legged lame but otherwise showing no other signs of injury.

For him to go suddenly as lame as that I would suspect an abscess

It sure looks like it. Assuming that there's no other cuts or scrapes on that leg that might hurt.

No cuts or scrapes on leg. He was a bit off for 3 or 4 days prior to going dead lame.

sure looks like abcess to me lameness to me. The cool thing is how quickly they get feeling better, once the abcess is released.

Dang! Do you ever catch a break with this boy? I'm hoping it's just an abcess and nothing more.

In addition to what's been said while I agree he doesn't catch a break poor thing all the issues he's had can contribute to abscesses. I know his feet were very compromised not long ago and I would think this is likely a secondary issue to that especially if he hasn't had an issue with this before.

I would treat like an abscess until the farrier is able to make it out.
loosie and Filou like this.

Farrier came pulled shoe pared some sole.There is a fairly large area that was soft squishy. When hoof testers were applied he was extremely sore pulled away rearing up.

Soaked his hoof in epsoms salt & wrapped it with diaper vet wrap and slathered lots of ichtamol not sure of spelling. He can hardly walk he's so lame. He's in barn well because he can hardly walk. Worse then when video was taken.

He was pretty good about having foot in a feed pan with Water,stood fairly good for the 20 minutes. Poor dude really hurts. Will soak again in morning after ,I make a run to feed store for more vet wrap. Picture of hoof couldn't draw on it computer that lets me do drawing crashed.
