I've got to admit the Epsom salt poultice sure does work slick! We put another one on her today just to help keep her hole clean and to pull out any residual pus inside her hoof.

And we have a verdict.... it appears an abscess was indeed making her lame. When I changed her poultice this afternoon there was a small soft hole in between the bulbs of her heel. There were also two pusy marks at the heel end of her frog valley. Does anyone know what that's actually called? (Just taking a wild guess that frog valley isn't it - anyhow the dip part that you pick out.) Oh and her diaper smelled rank!
