  1. To Trim Or Not To Trim

    My broodmare who has had problems with her feet since I have owned her( No she does not pass this on to the foals). When she was a 2 year old the story is she got caught in a cattle guard and they never did anything while she healed just put her in a pen until she healed. As a result her front legs are not sound and they are crooked (again not something she has ever passed to her foals). Now every single time I have her trimmed she gets abcesses, I have a vet out and they open them up and I give her bute/banimine and antibiotics. She always heals But every single time I trim her she gets abcesses in her one foot. So then I have a vet out they open the abcess wrap her foot and give her pain killers and antibiotics and I change the bandage on her foot for a week. Now when she was at the ranch she was on rocks and her feet always stayed short except for the toe I had a farrier teach me just how to knock the toe back so I did that. But I had to bring her in to have a cancer removed from her ear and take care of that. Now her feet got long and I had a farrier out to trim her and you guessed it I am not taking care of another abcess. So my question is would you trim her regular? or go longer between trims? When the abcess is healed she walks fine it just every time she is trimmed. Sorry its a jumbled mess the enter button doesn't want to work.
