Question Need Help ASAP!!!

My 3 yr. old TWH cross has a bad foot due to an injury when he was a yearling. He now has a severely under-run heel and a flat sole (which he's standing on!) ANY IDEAS?!?!?! Farriers coming soon but I need some help on this one guys!!!

Talking to your vet and farrier are your best options. They have a better understanding of the foot and how to fix it. Without seeing the horse, I'm betting your farrier recommends a pad and shoes to balance him out properly.

I'd learn as much as you can about the horse hoof, and the different methods of shoeing and trimming (google and youtube are your friend) so you can make an educated decision. I seen quite a few hooves ruined because a farrier was trying to 'fix' something.

My best advice is to check out my barefoot trimmer's site. I have a mare that has/had a problem with this type of hoof for a while and she is getting her fixed up. It takes a little time for the hoof to rebuild strength. Amber Mohr's Barefoot Hoof Care I hope that links ok.

Thanks ALL!! I talked to my farrier and Charlie's inability to wear shoes right now due to his injury we had to come up with some other ideas with my farrier. We've fixed him for now... hopefully it'll stay that way!

Any good fixes for poor hoof growth as well I'm just looking for a highly recommended supplement or topical conditioner....

Thanks :)

Farrier's Formula is great for healthier hoof growth. but it will take months before you notice the difference. better hoof growth starts at the top.

Can we see pics of the hoof? Also what is this horse's complete diet like??

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)
