Sadly Oreo has been suffering for a long time with previous problems in his knees from unknown injuries. Because of this, he was on restricted movement for a long time, and means he spent almost all his life instead a stable, causing complete havoc with his feet. This allowed thrush to develop in his hooves deep inside the slucus causing him a huge amount of pain and problems with mobility.
hrush is a common bacterial infection affecting the horse’s hoof, more specifically the soft frog tissues and occasionally the heel. We are treating this the best we can understand the circumstances and all crossing our fingers for his speedy recovery!
