To AppyT and BFH -- THANK YOU SO MUCH for keeping this thread up to date. I follow it religiously.

I just did a recap from day 1 to now and it's amazing the changes that she has gone through. It's fascinating and a real learning thread. I'm so pleased that this has gone so well for Heidi thanks to your dedication to her -- both of you are great! Congrats!

P.S. I wish you did get a video of the little buck/kick. Too awesome!

HA! You could come see Cinder any time.Actually, I'll try to remember the CD with her pics. Fat heifer is waiting on her last round of hay right now, so I should get off the computer. HER feet are looking better...due for a trim, though-might use HER in my next video clip. She's making an audible "plop plop" as she walks or runs. Still likes to run, giant foal belly and all. Saw it move again today, too.

Northermamma, Thank you for posting. I kind of wondered if anybody was still reading. I tell ya, I probably won't get another opportunity to photograph her actually moving. LOL

BFH, I do need to drive over and see her, and you. You going to be around this weekend? Btw, did you get the pics in your email? Answer that thing.. What time friday?

She is looking 95% back to normal. I agree with NM thanks for keeping the photos and posts up to date.
You need to have a camera ready when she is turned out for the first time on a 100% foot. Should be fun to watch

I'm guessing that will be when I let her out of the arena. Once she hits the "pasture" I'll be lucky to find her to get a pic. LOL Thinking another week or so.I'll be checking with the vet first tho. Plus it's gong to have to be dry when I let her out.

Update pics

Here are the pics from day after Thanksgiving. I'm inluding one that really shows how compromised the hoof wall was (look at her other foot in the background and compare angles). Note the giant ripple/deviation in the wall-that is laminitis from the wound healing process and could have caused major rotation in this hoof. Frequent trimming without a shoe kept this from being worse. In following pics, if the trim looks too short, I'd agree. But, in her case, we decided it was better to go short and keep the wall connection as intact as possible. To make up for this, we put an EquiCast on her to protect her from bruising, and to continue to support her foot laterally for the healing wound during turnout. This is NOT an example of a healthy foot's a modified trim for the situation at hand and I will be changing it as the ripple grows out, and hoof protection will be provided as necessary in casts or hoof boots.

Again, originally, the vet's prognosis was that this mare would be in the stall for months, with a grim outlook for future soundness, but it's just been since the last part of Sept. , and she's already going to pasture turnout with vet's approval. Trimming for the unique situation helped, but mild exercise, and great tempermant on the horse helped this heal much faster than anticipated. Hope the pics help.

Weanling are the pics. Sorry they are huge. My photo editor isn't wanting to shrink them for me.
    11-27-2009, 11:13 PM
Okay, so the pics aren't coming through...I'll try again.

Maybe this time a pic will show...
