Hello all! Most of you know Parsley (and for many months following) suffered with bad lami due to Cushings in December 2010. He hasn't had an touches of lami since and his cushings is under control by him having Pergolide. You can't even tell that he ever had anything wrong with him, he's a very fit, happy healthy pony.
Just some issues we've been having over the past couple of months is his feet. It's not massively serious and he hasn't lost any shoes but they aren't in particularly good condition. It's been very dry weather so he's been having Hoof Moist and I've been spraying them with water. But parts of his hooves are still coming away. He's only going 4 weeks or so and backs and fronts are done at different times so the costs are bundling together. :/
One of people at our yard who sorts out feet said it's more likely to be the last crappy parts of the lami in the foot coming out and away, which would make sense...
Yesterday I was checking/picking out his feet when the back left had the clench nail sticking out from where some foot had come away. *frustration* so I put bell boots on the back and he had some exercise which was all fine but i have decided not to ride him until this is all sorted. (next tues or fri)
Supplements good for helping improve the condition of the hooves? Anyone? Any questions welcome lol, I don't think I explained myself particularly well!
It's lonely in the saddle since the horse died.
