Re: Lavinia : new hoof pics after trim farrier back Monday
Thank youtoggle quoted message Show quoted text
I did get her trimmed & we found an active absess at the toe on her right front which we could open by squaring the front of her hoof . It surprises me she stands more on her right than her left front - her left front seems to cause more pain to her but her right front has the active absess ? The left front was dry .
We lowered the heels a bit on both & put her back in her cloud boots. She seemed a bit more comfortable & stood quite a bit before laying down . She was active eating - she can be fussy with her supplements though .
I have gotten the jiaogulan so I will try that . The mare has gone from 2gr bute am & pm to now 1gram am per day & am trying to get her off that .
I worry about the epson soaks as I don’t want to soften her sole or hoof too much - don’t want to get solar penetration- you can see in her files her coffin bone esp the right has a pretty severe angle . Thoughts ?
