I think Sky had one last weekend, she was hopping lame so couldn't take part in the clinic with Trudi, and now she's fine again. Gave the foot a good clean and soak last night but can't see any abscess hole......can't have been anything else given how quickly she recovered though

Only noticed tonight that along with a large ring on the foot that abscessed the other three hooves also have a ring :hmmm: and what is more so does Tiky although much fainter :hmmm: I can not for the life of me think what changed in October last year, their food has been the same, exercise and even the weather didn't change :confused: no wormer or medication , very strange :confused:

How weird, ME. If you hadn't said there had been no changes then I'd have been sure that you had altered his diet or that he'd moved to a new pasture. It's very pronounced. If they all have it then did they find something different to munch on in the field? Something that came into season...acorns or some kind of autumn weeds...I don't know!

:random: :random: whoops ... it will grown out but not very pretty at the moment ... is he sore ??

I think I would want to trim the opposite side down to sole plane so that he is weighting it evenly ..... not much else you can do other than wait for it to grow back ...

Trimmed that bit last night. no he is not sore at all and indeed the night before in the storm he was cantering around "playing!" with Tiky looking he best he has been for some time, I have also changed him over to Linseed rather than Colza oil so not sure if that is helping as well, I have some of that green clay/zinc cream coming Thursday which I shall put on it so it looks better.

The ability of horses feet to regenerate always amazes me ... if he's not sore then it was ready to come off .... :thumbup:

The fact the is it all open to the air now rather having a hole and cavities where 'nasties' could get established will be a good thing ...
