Friday morning we discovered that Carmen had an abscess in her back left hoof. We spent a good while soaking her leg in a bucket of Epsom salt and warm water. While her foot soaked Jeff gave her a good grooming. She loved all the attention!
Our farrier is coming tomorrow to look at Carmen's feet. He has looked over her x-rays and hopefully will have a plan on getting Carmen more comfortable. We are also going to have him look at Carmen's back hoof where the abscess erupted.
On a positive note - Georgie was awesome while we were taking care of Carmen! Even though she couldn't see her mom she wasn't stressed out. She happily munched on her hay in her stall (:
