When I looked at Max's hind feet last night, it smelled funny and I dug out some black-ish stuff. I texted my trainer and she said the farrier will be out and look at it today.
Well..turns out he has thrush on both hind feet.... Sigh.... I mean...can we get a break already? And who knows what's going on in his front feet under those pads....
Luckily he's not lame from it and that it's treatable. He left some medication for me to apply every other day.
I also bought a thing of Thrush Buster and No Thrush for maintenance to help prevent this from happening again!
Aaaahh...Just had to rant a little!
