2 Year Old Filly - Hoof Injury and Proud Flesh

 "My two year old filly hung her foot in a fence on 8/29. When I discovered the injury, she had literally shaved all of the hide from the bottom her fetlock, down the pastern and into the very top of the coronet band. I had the vet come out and remove the flap of skin since it was already dying off. I then began a regimen of cleaning and wrapping her foot per my vets instructions. I used ointments that I have always used for random injuries, but nothing this gruesome. No matter what I used, it did not seem to be getting any better. As a matter of fact, it appeared to be getting worse. The filly actually re-injured herself in the exact same manner twice before we found where she was pawing the fence.

By November, two months after the injury occurred, I was fed up and feeling frustrated that she was simply not healing. I stumbled across Equaide while browsing the internet for proud flesh solutions and ointments. I was reluctant at first, due to price and online shopping in general. But, with a money back guarantee and the testimonials I saw, I felt a little bit more at ease.

I got in my first two ounce jar and decided to give it a go. The second hoof photo is of her foot on 11/20, after religiously cleaning and doctoring the wound with different varieties of ointments and solutions bought at the local tack stores since the injury occurred two months prior. I have actually never had a horse with this much proud flesh forming from an injury. On 11/20 I cleansed her foot per the directions on the Equaide. I then applied my thin layer of medicine and wrapped the foot. I unwrapped the foot 48 hours later. Tears actually welled up in my eyes. The proud flesh was all but gone. The wound now had a smooth surface. I tell you now, I would never have a believed it if I had not seen it with my own eyes. The third photo is her foot after being doctored once with Equaide, then unwrapped 48 hours later on 11/22. The little bulbous thing poking out behind that wound is the flap of skin that was created during the third re-injury.

The fourth photo is of her foot one week (11/27) after being doctored with the Equaide ointment and following the directions provided. The redness is beginning to fade away with healthy pink flesh showing through.

The fifth photo was taken on 12/10. You can literally see the new skin forming around the edges of the wound and closing it up.

The sixth photo was taken on 12/29. A mere one month using Equaide and the wound is almost entirely closed. After battling with the wound using other medications for two months and getting nowhere, this is just short of a miracle in my eyes.

The last photo was taken 1/19. The wound is now thoroughly closed.

As I write this, it’s now a little over a year since the injury occurred. She does have a small scar there where fur doesn’t grow. There’s no doubt in my mind that if I had started her on the Equaide immediately following her injury, that there would be little to no evidence it even happened. I only wish I would have known about it sooner. I just ordered my third jar. My horses are a bit accident prone, but I actually worry less just knowing that I have Equaide in my tack room. It’s a wonderful feeling to find a product that does what it’s supposed to do and one that does it so well. Thank you to the creators of Equaide for such a phenomenal product!"
