Comic's hoof update

This spring I posted about a poor shoe job, my lack of knowledge, and a hoof crack that had been plaguing my gelding for several years. Through lots of replies, links to info, reading through all that info, and practical application I am happy to say that the crack in Comic's front left hoof is completely grown out! His feet are in the best shape I have ever seen them. We both continue to love our Renegade boots. I don't know that he will ever go fully barefoot but we can do short rides barefoot and the rest we boot for. So thanks to everyone (loosie and deserthorsewoman especially) for all the help.

Yes I'll take some pics in the next day or two of the "after" hoof. I'll have to scrape the frozen mud off of it ;) Here is the before though.

I get a 'you do not have permission to view this album' and 'request access' come up when I click on your link. I did click the 'request access' so you should be getting a notification of sorts. I don't use google + often.

Wow took me long enough. BUT... here is Comic's hoof with the crack almost gone. One or two more trims and it should be bye bye. It will be almost exactly one year by the time it is gone I think. After dealing with it for several years I am so glad to see it at this stage. Thanks again guys!

Awesome! Just goes to show it takes a year for a horse to fully grow out a bad crack, and it may be a slow process to our eye, but it can be done!
