Arrow More pics

Here are some more pics of his hoof...after we fixed it!

I found a super good farrier and he trimmed it up nicely.

Then we put on some epoxy glue,after told to do so by a experienced horse women that has a rehab ranch.

Anyhow, his hoof looks SO MUCH BETTER!

Thank you everyone for all your comments/tips. -

Other than putting some goo on the break, what did you do? The toe still looks long to me, possibly the heel is still high and no roll, but it just about impossible to know from the new pic. Would you be able to post sole shots again? Just would be interesting to see the progression.

It looks like he has had an abscess that blew out at the top of the foot leaving him with the horizontal crack , the verticle crack may even have been the original source of the abscess.

He needs his feet trimming really regularly at least 4 weekly to prevent a flare that will keep splitting the hoof. His foot looks rather poorly shaped but he is standing badly so we really can't see what it truly ooks like. Apply Cornucrescene to the coronary band daily - this will encourage the foot to grow faster getting the splits grown out.

crack, dry, health, hoof
