case: long period bad shoeing

Then and now – after 7 months orthopedic barefoot trimming:
Long time shoeing and wrong angles reduced the blood circulation in his feets. Those hoofes are growing very slowly – only about 5mm a month. But even small steps gather to great advances. Can’t you see him smile?

case: founder

Yes, it’s still the same hoof after 6 weeks, but a new horse with a lot of power 🙂

Work in progress: Only 6 weeks in between those images of a front hoof. This horse suffered too long by a former laminitis and false work of various veterinarians and farriers. My opinion is that such long walls are triggering “founder”. Now he’s able to be ridden again, which is something his owner honestly never thought would happen…
