A stone bruise is NOT fatal...where in the world did you get that information? leave it alone! stand your horse in mud, or run a water hose on it for 20 minutes a day. Do not have the hooves trimmed unless they are really bad. Yikes if YOU stepped on a rock hard enough to bruise you would YOU die? I think not. DO not let anyone cut that hoof off...it will heal on it's own in time. Maybe a few months.
My farrier said that,but my vet said that it has turned into a Hoof Abscuss, and it is right above the hoof,making the hoof swell all the way up to just above the ankle.He will not eat,and he normaly eats two whole scoops of grain (Alot of food. Like the normal scoops from your feed store)And 4 flakes of hay.I feed him so much becouse he needed alot of energy for the races.but anyway.It has gotten infected says the vet. So I've been keeping him in one of my Birthing Stalls,which is 24'x15' so if he wants to move around he can. And every time I check on him,which is about ten times a day I clean out his stall and soak his hoof in a mixture of a whole lot of stuff for 30 minutes,then hose it then wrap it.Like the vet said,but she said that he may not get better.
I took care of this horse ever since he saw his first ray of sunshine and he is only four years old. He has been such a incredible horse and I would be so sad if I lost this guy to whatever the h**l he has.
The wind of heaven is that which blows between a horses ears!
Prissypets I want to be gentle with you and I hope you will heed this gal's 40 years + of horses. You are going to kill this horse feeding it that much. You are inviting a good case of founder. Horses do not need that nmuch concentrated grain.Drop this down to 1 scoop twice a day. Too much hay is a waste, and a horse that is recovering from an injury does not need to be burdened with a haybelly. On the matter of hoof problems, listen to your farrier first, vet second. A good farrier will admit if they do not know how to handle a certain problem. Most vets are not as versed with the hoof as a farrier.And it seems this vet's advice and opinions are contrary to what is common sense, and has you terrified that you will lose your horse. CUT DOWN THAT GRAIN OR YOU WILL.Your horse is not working and does not need that kind of food. They were not made to eat large meals, but to graze all day long on forage that digests gradually.I will message you privately with my phine number. Call me and i will be happy to help you with the care of this problem. An abscess is not the end of the world.
