thrush treatment

We bought a new mare at the end of June. She was in front pads and shoes. We purchased her from a friend of my husbands. He said she had always been barefoot but over the winter he got busy with work and neglected cleaning stall as often as he should and cleaning hooves and the mare got thrush he couldn't get rid of. He consulted his vet and the vet mixed a solution of formaldehyde and iodine to put on the hooves and to pad and front shoe the mare. The vet said you may have to go through three cycles of pads and shoes until there is new growth so she's not tender. We got a trial period for the mare, we weren't quite believing the shoe and pad theroy. We had our farrier come out and pull the shoes and pads, the mare walked out dead lame on her front end. We had our vet out to do a ppe at the same time. He saw her before and after pulling shoes. He consulted our friends vet because he had never heard of padding for thrush. We put pads and shoes back on her. This mare is such a nice horse we ended up purchasing her. On Monday the farrier was out, pulled pads and shoes, trimmed her and she wasn't lame at all and has been barefoot since. She has all new growth that isn't tender. This was our first time dealing with thrush in this way thought I would share :)
