Yes, I see what you mean. I've been doing some research about it since I heard the diagnosis (and prognosis :(). I thought that the farrier knew what he was doing but I can see that it didn't work with my horse (he is THE ONLY horse in the stable that is barefoot). I was recommended by the vets to shoe him (egg bar shoes) but the second vet told me it is a short-time relief and talked about how important it is to find a true professionalist. I contacted a lady who is both a vet and takes care of barehoof horses in a natural way. I've been still waiting for an answer (she asked where I keep the horse and I had to tell her that 120km away from her). She talked about the importance of food, movement and hoof balance. She told me that she would have to visit me more often (every 4-5 weeks) than a typical farrier (8 weeks). I hope she agrees.
Has anyone tried Tildren ? I am worried because I read about side effects... :( but I will at least try as he is a young horse and MAYBE I can still do something to help him.
He is not dead lame. He is happy but he doesn't like to trot. I can see that he prefers to canter slowly than to trot fast. I feel sad when I see that he isn't comfortable.
