, my father in law mare has a large crack in her hoof that my dumb sister in law has neglected for over 2 years ( oh yeah i'll fix it!!!,,, or i'll get the farrier out to fix it but never done) .....by what i've read and seen on t.v i'm impressed by it, (saw it on horseshoein n time channel 9411) but looking at this web site there in only one farrier in east ks, none in oka or co that work with this plate.......hey bare foot hope you take a look at this i'd like to know what you think of it?
"It is an orthotic device it treats hoof problems such as laminitis, founder, cracks, thin walls, shelly hooves, navicular and flat feet." UGH is my impression.. JMO but so does a correct barefoot trim. Better for the hoof too. ;) I would hate to see this used on a horse who's owner/caretaker didn't keep up with it religiously at the least..
is temporarily offline due to moving and finally having that baby. LOL I will shoot her an email with the link to this thread so she will find it asap.. I know she will say "show me pics of this mare's hooves.." ;) so get crackin. Lol
