I am seeking opinions on an interesting issue. Has anyone dealt with chronically bruised feet? Not bruised on the sole but on the hoof wall. Emi's hind feet (which are white) are always bruised. The farrier said it's due to her whacking it on something but it seems odd to me that both the inside and outside of both hind feet are always bruised. She doesn't seem to interfere and even if she did...why would the outside be bruised? She doesn't kick in her stall so it's not that. Does anyone have experience with this? She's not sore or lame or anything else so you'd have no idea anything was amiss except her white feet are purple...we actually have a new specialty podiatry clinic opening up near us so I'm going to ask them next!
