  4. Unsure Of What To Do

    Ok my horse has the seedy toe opened up by a vet ...I've soaked the hoof for 10 days straight am + pm and he has been booted in cavellos 24/7 as he's out 24/7 and it's been 10 days now...I've noticed his heels getting soft and don't llike the color of them ..the vet said I can take the boots off after 10 days but I have rocks and gravel pretty much everywhere...do u think it's safe to take the cavellos off??

  7. Sole Calous

  8. Sole Calous

    here is a trim I did a yesterday realizing after finishing I had my phone in my pocket so took a couple of pics ..I've been taught to not touch the sole calous which makes sense to me but always had a problem with long toes underun heels..but being on this forum I'm learning to follow the sole that I have to follow the sole all the way around but feel I've done something wrong I've attached pictures of one hoof and will post the other one after both fronts have one cracked heel and white line seperation ..now the quarter area with the seperation is "lower" than the other side and don't quite know what to do with this...??
