clips to help a cracked hoof
Comic has a crack right down the front of his hoof that we have been trying to grow out for 2 years. It really doesn't want to. It's not so bad that he's lame or anything but it's still not good. We've got a new farrier (old farrier retired) and he suggested using clips to close it. Has anyone done this? Does it work? He also talked about wiring it closed but I don't think it's bad enough to warrant that. Like I said, it's not split open, just cracked.
