For Lack of a Hoof - A Horse is Lost - Or is it? In February 2010, Kena Davies came home from work to find her professional barrel racing horse, Zander, did not come up with the rest of the gang to eat. Dreading the worst, she began a long walk around the pasture. She found her gelding attached to the fence - literally. He had managed to insert the fencing between his hoof (what remained) and his shoe. Kena loaded Zander in a trailer for a visit to Dr. Cliff Honnas, DVM, located at the Texas Equine Hospital in Bryan, Texas. The shoe had thankfully remained on the foot. Zander desperately needed the support. After the vet cleansed and dressed the wound, Kena understood it would be a long time - if ever - before her beloved gelding could be ridden. On the 4th day, as instructed, Kena unwrapped the foot to change the dressing. Things did not look good. The entire area was covered in rapidly growing proud flesh, a pinkish granulation tissue which fills in spaces between soft tissues. It has a tendency to form where there is little soft tissue between skin and bone. It often occurs in areas of movement. The movement pulls on wound edges. It will definitely slow the healing process as newly formed skin can not grow over a wound. All too often a veterinarian must cut away the malformations. Using Thieves™ Foaming Hand Soap, she cleansed the area. Next, Kena poured about 20 drops of Thieves™ essential oil blend over the proud flesh. A powdered charcoal was then applied over the area. Six (6) drops of both Oregano and Thyme were applied neat along the coronary band. These single oils which were known to aid in fighting infection were smeared about until the entire area was covered with oils. Last, she wrapped the foot as instructed. This procedure was repeated every 4 days for approximately 2 months. Kena felt the skin wound had healed sufficiently in 3 weeks but was concerned about infection getting between the hoof wall & capsule. (photo at 3 weeks). There was no remaining califlowered overgrowth of tissue. Each morning and evening, Zander received 2 ounces of NingXia Red™ to support his immune system and aid in reducing inflammation. Within 8 months, Zander had grown a whole new foot - in less time than expected prognosis. He was competing again!!
