Re: Need Advice ASAP -- PPID/IR Horse Won't Walk

Hi Susan,

If he can't lift the RF, you can have him stand on a 2x4 then trim around that. Or have him stand on a thick bed of shavings/sand/and trim thru the footing material. More work for the trimmer but you can get the job done that way.

Could also see about having the vet present so you could do a nerve block on the LF so that he is able to stand on it for the trimming session.

If he's laying down, just let him. It's good for him to rest his feet and body. Just make sure he can reach his food and water from that position if he needs to.
