Friend of mine has OTTB with the old injury. The injury doesn't cause any pain or discomfort (she had vet to rule out what is going on), however he drags one of his hind feet wearing out the toe a lot (almost up to the white line).
Her farrier put the shoes on his back feet, however it didn't seem to solve the issue. Next step farrier suggested is to put a big clip on shoe on that problem hoof.
So my question is will that clip help at all? Is there anything else can be done to protect the toe and help it grow some? May be using epoxy or something? (I know nothing when it comes to shoeing or protecting)
I plan to ask my farrier as well, but I won't see him till Sept (he'll be out of town for quite some time).
