Spice Hoof Update

Some seen the pictures of how bad my horse's hoofs gotten, that the farrier hadn't been really trimming them at all. Well a new farrier came, and he was rather surprised when I said she'll really wasn't "due" as in the fact it had been only a few weeks since her last trim, he had thought I had let them go from at least three or four months. He even started to say if I wanted him to do her feet it had to be a minimum of every eight weeks, when I told him.

But good and bad news. Good news her shoes came off, and once he cleaned up the frog, and her sole was shedding, plus a ton off the flares, they almost look like hooves are suppose too. The flares were bad enough though he couldn't get rid of them all the way, but a plan was made to get rid of them in a few more trims.

Bad news the hoofs have seriously messed up her hind legs, when it came to bending her legs up onto the stand you could see it hurt her to flex any way. So it was recommended easy exercises for the next few weeks, until she is feeling better. Her hoof wall is all flaky and the whole smelled so badly.

I'm post pictures a little later, once I find my camera again. I told him I had no idea what I was looking at when I look at a horses hoof, that I hadn't realized what the other farrier (he knew who it was because when he asked who I bought it from, he knew her as the farrier too) was doing. He said I was obviously observant so it was a good place to start learning, it made me feel a little better, that there is hope in improvement.

After

I only got a picture of under her front left, she's sore in the back and was grumpy about picking them up. I added a picture of her doing one of her favorite things, eating pricker leaves! The last picture shows much much was taken off both back hoofs, a little less for the front.

Good if you've found a good farrier. Unfortunately pics of feet buried in grass & covered in muck are pointless if you want any opinions on them. Look at sig link below.

Oh & I'd suggest finding a good bodyworker come check her out if she has hind leg/hip issues.

I'm not worried about a critique at this point, plus I hurt my shoulder so I can't hold the camera straight and and hold a hoof without a lot of pain. Just glad to see a difference, might take new picture once my shoulder is done swelling though.

I would bring someone to look at her, but I'm in the middle of no where, and I'm lucky to have a vet and farrier available, that's about all that I have around, not even tack shops, not even a human chiropractor within an hour. If I could I would be it is not reasonable to think I can bring in someone over 3 hours away from one horse, at this point in time, gas fees would be over $200 alone.But thanks
