OK, so I got a call from my mum at 10 to 9 this morning asking me to cycle to the stables as her mare (Rowenna) had some blood coming out of her hoof. I got there soon after and had a look at it. It seems the abscess that she has had for the past few weeks (that came out of the sole) has come back. As the farrier blocked the original hole, it seems that the abscess had no choice but to come out the coronet band.
Is it uncommon for an abscess to come out of the coronet band?
We have called the vet and they are coming this afternoon.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
