About horses and horse ownership by two women who own horses and live in the midwest of the United States.
Callie- yep that sure as shooting IS a "Sonny Hoof"...lol... I am going to follow this closely- this sure seems a heck of a lot easier to do using your goobers there than me fighting with what I am doing!!Rubs to all the critters from me!
That really is one muddy hoof she's got there. Hope it is healing for you.
Callie, are you wrapping the hoof after you've got it doctored? I used vet wrap on my ram when he had a nasty abcess to help keep the mud out. We're pretty bad here in the clay right now, too. :(
Glad to hear it is looking better. She is one tough cookie if she's not lame and can still run! You gotta be tough to make it here in the midwest be you man or beast!
Mrs.Mom, I know, I know......Inspite of all of our moisture, I think it's actually looking a bit better believe it or not.Arlene, Right now, it is raining and continueing to rain, and these girls won't stand in a dry, clean shelter, so I've been letting them out in the pasture where at least the mud is limited and they have grass to stand on,Tracey, I find it a bit of a conundrum, I haven't wrapped it because it is so moist, I'm afriad to wrap the moisture in and cause more thrush. There is no way in all of this rain (daily) that I can get this hoof dry enough to wrap. My other problem is niether of these will be stalled without injuring themselves, especially if only one is stalled. Jeremiah said in this crap weather, not to bother wrapping. It did cross my mind, however.J & R, I think we're getting a handle on it.
What a chore!! getting all that mud off and cleaning up her hoof!! You sure did get it clean!!
Andrea, Jet option on hose, LOL!
