|Lots of onions... and onion breath. Yuck!|
Once she was ready to start on Lilly's hooves, the first thing she said was, "wow". I was hoping she'd see what I saw, which was a little bit of concavity. Yes, I said CONCAVITY! I'm not sure it shows up very well in a photo, but you can see where the color is a bit lighter in front of her frog, and that's where we're seeing it. She's still very flat, but we're seeing changes.
|Looks pretty good, yes?|
|Four weeks ago.|
We're still fighting off the seedy toe on her right front, so we have a new plan for that. I purchased some triple antibiotic ointment, as well as some athlete's foot cream, which I will mix together and slather on up in the crater. Then I'll pack it with cotton to keep the cream in, and the icky stuff out. I'm also getting some Keratex to use a couple times per week, and I might also go back to soaking with the Oxine once a week on all hooves, just to make sure we keep the bacteria away, and to help with any white line separation.
So, is it the change in environment that's causing all these wonderful changes to occur? Maybe the teeny, tiny change in trim method? Perhaps eliminating her supplements? (Weird to think they could have been hurting her, but who knows!) I'm just so excited and so encouraged! I haven't felt this way in quite a while.
