After 7 days, Alfie’s hoof is doing better. There is no evidence of a popped abscess, and his foot is less sore. The farrier came back today to put his shoe back on.
Alfie isn’t 100% sound yet but he also isn’t lame. The farrier is now convinced that Alfie most likely stepped on his foot with his other foot causing a soft tissue injury or bruise. Since he’s improving and he’s got his shoe back on he can now be turned out in the arena.
Keep the good vibes and prayers coming. Physically he’s feeling better but mentally he’s missing being turned out with his friends and he’s getting “cabin fever.”❤️🐴
