case: underrun heels

16y old Arabian gelding in may 2010

Look and compare following points with the next picture:
– underrun heels
positioning of front legs
– the buck-kneed carpus
– swollen flexor tendons on frontlegs
– conformation of back and the missing muscles behind the withers
– the ewe neck with stiff lower neck muscles
– position of hindlegs, cow-hocked and toes out
– this horse is not able to carry weight in balance under his body
– last but not least: the unlucky face… his nostrils, mouth and eyes telling about the long during pain

Same gelding in november 2010

Look and compare… and see a smiling horse!
ALL points are improved by short period continious hoof orthopedic work!

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?
