Back In Booties, Fixing The Future

Horsekeeping

Lucky enough to have a horse

 
Awareness of the outside world. The first person in my immediate family has gotten their vaccine. Yay!

Recently, Rodney has been taking a few days to adjust to new shoes. Instead of waiting for the hinky steps, this time we are moving directly to prophylactic booties and salt poultices. Past process has been wait a few days -> unhappy horse -> remedy for unhappy horse -> happy horse. Now we are skipping ahead to the last two steps. That’s the thought.

In other hoof news, looks like last month’s extended footsoreness was due to a bruise. Photo shows remnants. Blacksmith says that injury happens where there is circulation. By the time you can see it, the horse is over it. [Leading His Best Life]

Life with a thin-soled, flat-footed Thoroughbred.

Stay safe. Stay sane.
