She seems to be trimmed at the wrong angle. The first picture shows her hoof is long in the toe and short in the heel. This puts undue pressure on the navicular bone. She needs the angle changed to a more upright position. It will probably take more than one trimming to see any improvement. There does seem to be a little thrush in the hoof. A little copper naphthenate (Coppertox) should clear that right up. I hope she gets better.

You should have kept reading, I posted pictures of every trim after that until May. =]

She's sound right now, she is being seen by a barefoot trimmer every 4 weeks until the last bit of "old" hoof is gone. She's got about two or three more trims left before her feet will look good, but she's certainly improved.

Sorry about that. I'm glad she is better. I am new to this forum and I thought I did read the entire post. Oops. Looks like you have things under control.

Thank you, I am too. She was off for a year, I've so desperately missed riding her, I'm glad to have her back. =]

Front view, right front.


Sole, right front.


Heel, right front.


Side, left front. [My hand is there because her other hoof was making this one look wonky, lol.]


Front, front left.


Sole, front left.

And just one side view of her back left. If you'd like more, just ask and I'll be happy to oblige. =]


And because she's pretty.
