Mare lost front shoe Friday, with it went a large portion of hoof. She hasn't lost a shoe in almost 5 years, I think the mud we have right now is the culprit.
Farrier came, said not enough hoof to nail a shoe, so he did build up and glued on an aluminum shoe. He told me to try to keep it as dry as possible.
Horses are in today due to lightning and bad weather here. But I can't keep this mare in until she grows a new hoof! Do you have any ideas of how I should protect the hoof from moisture when she goes back out? Easy boot? Wrap? I did a search but could not find anything, and fortunately I have never had a problem like this before. Thanks so much.
