Lilly's hoof is driving me crazy, so I decided to act a little crazy... and dig out a giant chunk of her hoof. No more hiding, bacteria!! I got something for you!! It's called hoof knife and oxine!!
|Don't like being able to see the laminae!!|
I'm hoping I managed to cut away all the infected stuff. I'm pretty sure I did, so unless it manages to burrow up in there again somehow, air should be getting to it all. I was trying to avoid cutting out such a large area, but clearly my earlier methods weren't working. We'll see how it goes now.
The good news is, while I had her hoof up on the Hoofjack, Lilly rested her chin on my back and took a snooze. After I set it down, she licked and chewed through groggy eyes, so I don't think any of it made her uncomfortable.
So far the weather is looking good for Saturday! I still have 500 things to do before Friday, but I'm not stressing. If it gets done it gets done. I can't wait!
