Good Morning Erica
Hi, left a vote, it has been a week of early mornings and long days. Lots of overtime and lots of worry. Remember I have mentioned before that worry is somthing I do really well. Charlie has been a bit off with what I suspected was a stone bruise or even an abcess. Not lame but off when I rode, subtle but not quite with me. Choppy steps, especially on right rein. So, I have wrapped and poulticed and nothing changed. The farrier came Thursday night, about 3 months ago we put shoes on him for 2 reasons. He has sensitive feet, not his fault, he is TB, and because he had a toe crack, we did not want it to spread. 4 weeks ago on his last reset, the crack was all but gone, looking good. Thursday night, the crack was spread open and deeper. I can't beleive I didn't notice it. Anyway, we have white line infection. I posted a pic of it pared, but it is deeper and the farrier did not want to do more until our vet saw it. Dr. Cook came yesterday and confirmed the diagnosis, and agreed more wall has to come off. He said you must be aggressive with this treatment, and Charlie will be just fine, his foot will look terrible, but it grows back and it will be fine. I slept better last night than I have all week, but I am still worried. Monday or Tuesday they will get together, Charlie will need a little sleepy juice and they will pare away the rest of the infection. These bugs are anearobic(sp) and die on cotact with air, so open it up and clean it out and let the wall grow back. So, now you know where I have been... Talk soon, Tired Donna Lee
