Milo is suffering from a nasty abscess not to mention just some old age, old man who’s done too much soreness. He’s look pretty miserable the last couple days. Fortunately, I skipped class today and went to the barn instead. Milo had his feet done a week ago and seemed just a bit banged up and stiff. Wednesday he could hardly walk. I was really worried, he’s never taken a lame step. Today though, another farrier happened to be at the barn and offered to take a look at him. At first, there was a thought that he might be facing some major problems, but then…a nasty, giant abscess popped through. He dug it out, salved it up, and wrapped it. Thank God there was not something worse going on.
So, a week of soaking, packing , and wrapping is ahead but that’s OK. I’ve been there and done that before. I was looking online though for Kaeco Epsom Salt Poultice and found they make a whole kit for abscesses! $38 on Amazon. I think this is a great kit for people who don’t have much experience with it all!
