Mark arrived and we got to work. By "we" I mean Mark. I just held the horse and offered helpful commentary like "I think he's going to move," and "Oops, did the dog just lick you?" What can I say, Mark's lucky to have an owner like me looking out for him. I'm sure some farm dogs are mean, right? I mean, what's a little slobber between friends?? Annie's sure they are friends. She's a little goofy though.
Lucky for us it was one of the last nice days we had before our winter weather hit so we went right into a Clean Trax soak.
The hardest part is finding a bag big enough to go around and his hoof and strong enough to hold up to him standing on it that long.
I love Clean Trax. It makes the hooves look so nice and clean and pretty when it's done. One day I will do a Clean Trax soak on all four hooves and take before and after pictures so you can see just how nice it looks. I think I need to wait till the $10 Congress sale first though!
I changed thrush medications. I'd been squeezing some Thrush Buster under the silicone, but clearly it wasn't working very well, so I switched to Well Horse. This product you apply with a toothbrush. I squirted a bit in the hole and then scrubbed it all around.
Then I went a little crazy and applied it just about everywhere.
Then I put on our handy EasyBoot RX, and everyone went out for a little turnout in the beautiful sunshine. Look - Weapon and I aren't even wearing our coats!
