Hoof Abscess

Mingo has another hoof abscess. I had the vet out, but after a thorough search, she said that it must be under his frog, so she can't drain the hoof from the bottom. I will have to soak and soak and it should pop out if his heel in a few days. Poor little guy--I wanted him to have some relief. He isn't lame, and he will put weight on his heel about half the time.

My vet can't believe his high tolerance to pain, but I'm used to it. I only knew there was a problem because I know him and abscesses so well. Poor little guy. He has such a stoic look on his face.
