Horse came in hopping lame last Tuesday so 1 week today. Farrier was fab and was there within half an hour to remove shoe and make a small exit hole.
Have been using Animalintex, hot poulticing and keeping it covered but he's been turned out 24/7.
Started to weight bear much better after...
Mine had been on the calm/digest/detox since January with no improvement. Tried the stepfree but he won't touch his food with it and he cannot be syringed. Had formula tweaked but still no difference after more ££££££££'s spent! Have now given up and am back to googling alternatives.
Agree - pain/discomfort was ruled out and in my horses case it was a behavioural issue and that worked for him. Once op has got to the bottom of this horses reason (if she can or indeed decides to persevere with it) then this is just an option I was recommending.
I have had amazing results with Naf magic paste on my tb who was very quick to rear and strike out when having his feet done. didn't manage to get it into him soon enough to begin with but last shoeing he had 2 syringes an hour before and he didn't even lift his head - farrier was amazed!
Horse I purchased in August really surprised me first time I had the farrier to him. Nothing was disclosed at sale and he is so placid in other ways I really didn't expect it. Chatting away to farrier, no tenseness or sign that he wasn't keen, then BANG! Up in the air and snatching all 4 feet...
Try it first. My new tb is short coupled and couldn't take bigger than a 16.5" which his previous owner had made for him.
My saddle didn't fit him and thought there was no way I would be comfy in it as 5'8" and medium build but it's the lovliest saddle i've ever sat on so don't rule it out!
I think he's fab! I'd be seriously interested myself if I hadn't recently found one. Love the headcam - what a nice course for a baby to go round :)
I agree, let them come and try him and you'll get a gut feel as to whether you want to part with him maybe.
