Hoof problems?

I must have jinxed myself. Today Gypsy seems like she is ever so slightly favoring her right hind, the one with the bad abscess blowout. I'm going to take some precautionary measures and soak her feet in betadine and Epsom salts tonight. She's been doing so well all winter. I wonder if this has anything to do with the mud that we have now. I bet it does. Time for warfare! I want to be able to use that horse this year!

Ugh I HATE abcesses. I didn't get to ride/work my horse for almost a whole year thanks to a stupid abcess. I ended up having to put him on antibiotics to get rid of it for good. So frustrating!! Good luck with Gypsy!
