So I had xrays taken of Daisy last Friday so we could see what was going on. Why is she still so lame, what can we do to make her more comfortable? First lets remind our self what a normal hoof should look like.
Notice a nice triangular shape with an even space of hoof that runs the entire front of the coffin bone. The bottom of the bone is solid and flat as well. This is what Daisy's xray of her "good" foot looks like.
Notice the front edge not being straight. There is also bony changes along the bottom of the coffin showing growth where the coffin has grown to accommodate its new shape. Here is her "bad" foot.
Both xrays do a good job of showing how much hoof still needs to come off. The farrier got these xrays today and he will be out on Saturday to make changes. About the only good thing we found in the xrays is that she doesn't have any fractures, something I was afraid of. Maybe someone is better at reading xrays than I am and has additional insight?
