    PLEASE HELP WITH HOOF

    THe shoes under her heel is because she was very uneven and she has not alot of heel on that side so this help balance her. The shoe is on backwards so that there is no pressure on the to crack. Yes that bands in her feet were seen and yes she has a 5 month filly on the ground. Almost a week since she was seen and things are looking up. Will take another pic in a couple of days. The lump on the coronet band is becoming smaller as the coffin bone moves back into place and the crack appears to of stopped(fingers crossed). She has not been sore or tender on this foot it seems to cause her no pain. The specialest said that there was alot of damage done before I purchased her. She was not fed what she needed she didn't get the exercise she needed and most of all she didn't get the love and care she needed. Made it very hard to do much with her but now we have trust and respect and i am able to do pretty much anything with her. Making everyones life alot easier.

    PLEASE HELP WITH HOOF

    Hi I am really happy with the specialist I am using but we are both open to suggestions. He is very good at what he does and explains everything as he goes. He has put the shoe on backwards as this will take he pressure of the crack but will give her support for her heels as they have been taken back to far. He has alined everything again as she was out quite a bit. He has also trimmed her toe right so that she doesn't bump it on anything. Will attach pics for you to see. I'm in Rockhampton qld 4701 Isn't letting me attach pics at the moment will try again in the morning

    PLEASE HELP WITH HOOF

    Ok so the specialist came out today and said that she is not clubby hooves and that the damage that has occurred is because of years of neglect which I have been able to track down where and when she was and what had happened to her. The hoof itself is in big trouble and i need to change her feed yet again and she needs regular trims every three to four weeks. This will let the hoof repair itsel from the inside as the arteries will be full of muck at the moment and there for the blood is not moving around as it should. He decided at this stage shoes are still needed. However if anyone has another answers I am still keen to hear them. As for being serious I am more then ever serious. I have been trying to do what was right for this mare. Please understand she has had a very hard life and I have been trying to fix all of her issues including her feet. My pal is to get her barefoot trimmed and as I said any advise that is going to make this happen would be great.

    PLEASE HELP WITH HOOF

    Hi yeah her foot is a bit clubby. The crack started in the toe however has now gone through her band. Manage to grow it out mid trim however by the time she is trimed the crack has gone all the way again. This mare has not had a fair chance at anything. I am trying to find a natural answer as I would love to remove her shoes. She is not lame today and is moving fine without pain. I have a equine specialist coming out tomorrow but am assuming he will put shoes back on. Would love to have the shoes off. Ok so if anyone has anymore info will be very helpful.
