Hi! I am working with a lovely 12 y/o Irish TB who seems to have a recurring abscess and I would like to know if this can be "managed". It is always located on the right hind and blows out above the coronet band. It also only seems to happen when it is wet and muddy out. I've had horses for years but no abscesses ever. He will be moving into my barn the end of summer so I can control his environment but for now I can't. Since he has this issue is it likely it will continue to happen? He's not mine so I haven't consulted the vet but I can do that in Aug. Any advice? He is shod now, but I am going to move him to Epona shoes when he arrives.
