I've been trying to find ya some good examples on wall cracks being grown out. But here's the only two I could come up with real quick. I may try to find ya some more cus I've read a lot of success stories of people going barefoot and lots of people saying how they grew out wall cracks. But just trying to find the stories of the cracks through all the people's experience is going to take some time. It's raining and cold outside so I may spend the day reading anyhow.
I enjoy reading all those success stories. And hopefully which ever direction you go you will have a success story to share with those in the future in the same situation. New Page 11
Not great examples of any cracks going to the coronet band but still good info. Healthy Hoof - Solutions for Barefoot Performance
This one had an injury which caused this crack. And you'll have to click the october 15 link to see the update on the crack. Also not a very good example.
But if I find a good example I'll be back.
Also I recall reading a different story from that second link while searching for wall cracks of a horse that had very brittle hooves which were turned into gravel crunchers. It might of been this one "dali -..... with thin shelly walls" Healthy Hoof - Solutions for Barefoot Performance
I dunno for sure though if that's the one I saw cus I just scanned about four sites and read about a dozen examples. "speed reader."
Hopefully someone that uses shoes can pop in and share their success for ya. Cus I know very little for using shoes to heal any issues that may show up. And I regret posting in my first post saying the thing about thinking they can't be grown out using shoes. That's just what the farrier lead me to believe when she told me that. And that was only in her experience and there's lots of farriers out there. Hopefully someone will show up and explain how they did it using shoes. But all I know is the proper barefoot trim.
