So today I was put in touch , through a customer of mine, with a guy who specialized in corrective shoeing and rehabilitation. I canceled my apt with the other fierier and am meeting with this guy on Sunday. He sounded like he was more confident in being able to help and actually said to his knowledge he is the only one in our area that does any specialty work or rehabilitation work. I do believe that because I've been looking anywho feel a little better knowing he has fresh schooling with "problem" repair...fingers crossed..

So new fierier came out and this is what he suggested, so this is what we did :). He is going to come out next month unless something happens in between now and then. He said the cornet band definatetly is damaged and she will always have an issue but with good maintenance and attention we should be able to keep her sound..

That's the sort of bracing I meant. I personally would have opened up the crack first, so ongoing treatment for infection could be easily done. I feel all that excess heel is a big part of the problem, esp being shod.

Do you think the heel is correct now? The new fierier did say that pending how it starts growing out he may leave her bare foot later.

Can't say from those pics whether they 'need' to stay that high(is that foot 'clubby'?) generally, but from the point of view of the crack it's not helpful that it's weightbearing & excessive. So I'd take it back, that side at least, but if she 'needs' to be clubby, then she may need some other form of support.

I've drawn on one of the pics to give an idea what 'ideal' might be, which also illustrates the deformation at the toe, which I don't know whether it's been addressed or not. Green lines show *roughly* what the foot would look like if ideal/lined up with internal structures & blue lines show *roughly* where I'd probably trim - very rough idea with only these pics to go on tho. I wouldn't shoe the horse until her feet are healthy, but if you are, I'd make sure the toe of the shoe wasn't forward of where it should be, and would ensure that quarter/heel wasn't loaded.
