Notes on Rose's hoof

Well, following on my post from last night,  I unwrapped the poultice from Rose's hoof and watched her move around ... not bad!  Still a bit of favoring that foot but less so.  Any heat in her foot?  No - yay!

So I decided to not soak her hoof and leave it unwrapped and assess the situation in the morning.  This morning, she was completely weight bearing on that foot!  Phew!

Crisis averted? ... who can say, it could still flare up.  I applied some Calendula + Tea tree oil and kept her out of the "bush" paddock again.

This evening ... still good!
