Please help me fix my mare's feet
These are pictures I had in my phone that I cropped so I apologize for the poor quality, but please let me know what you think I can/need to do to help her feet. My farrier is already working on them, but I am trying to get more ideas and input from others as well.
Also, he said she is flat footed.... what are ya'll's suggestions to fix that???
The first 3 pics are when I got her and the last 2 are shortly after I had her feet trimmed for the first time......
BEFORE I GOT HER
AFTER HER FIRST FARRIER APPT
I would have her trimmed at least 6-7 weeks in the summer and I ususally change to 8 weeks in the winter because they don't grow as fast. I keep front shoes on her because she is tender soled from the laminitis. She is outside 24/7 with a grazing muzzle. I give her formula 707, flax seed, hoof supplement and vita-flex power. If you keep up with the hoof supplement and keep her trimmed you should start seeing positive changes in a few weeks. It takes a year to totally grow out a crack
