Our farrier came out this morning at 8:00 am because we wanted to rule out the hooves before moving on to the next step. When he put the hoof testers on the fronts, he got sensitivity in both. A little trimming exposed what also looked like a bruise on the front right toe...or a possible abscess.
We cancelled the vet appointment for now and instead we're going to soak her feet in Epson salts, give her Bute and watch her for the next three days. Hopefully, whatever it is will reveal itself.
Last night I gave her a very small dose of Banamine and she came back to about 100 percent soundness.
As usual, we'll have to wait and see, but things are looking up.
