Well, I ain't gonna lie, it sounds like a wonderful time you are having! Can I come play, too? :P. And if you are handcuffed, at least they are golden ones. ;)

Somehow I missed all that conversation you had with loosie, I will have to go back and read.

I'm not sure what to do about the red beyond taking the pressure off the hoof toe.....

Hmm.....went back and reread the SwedishSchool PDF and they don't mention sugar at all just excessive forces on the hoof wall.

This is reassuring to me, as I was concerned yesterday about being too aggressive. Now I see that I still have some room for more. The red in the white line sure did concern me just a little!

loosie, can you clarify that if a hoof is properly mapped one can be pretty darn aggressive with everything forward of the breakover/pillars? Provided there is enough sole protection from pillars back, of course.

Hondo, I brought my colt home about ten days ago, and his back feet were under so much pressure from extreme flared bars, long toes and underrun heels that his quarters split; the right one wide open. If I had had to pay for this horse I would have turned him down. As it is, they sold him to me for a buck. I still had my doubts, but even after only ten days I am completely taken with this horse. He is going to be AWEsome when we get his feet rehabbed and he is ready to go under saddle in the Spring!

As it is I am learning more than ever for having to work on these feet. I cannot get the "good" farrier to call me back, and the "other" farrier is a much better trainer than trimmer, God love him.

Important quote from Home of Swedish Hoof School

Barefoot Peripheral loading.
It is just as easy to destroy a hoof barefoot as it is with shoes.
It is all in the shape of the hoof.

Hey, you're not on my payroll!! :):)

I do appreciate your comments though, but only when you have a little bit of time.

A good time to post might be upon returning from one of your favorite clients :):)

Heard that! I am a forum hound and a Facebook junkie. It will be a long winter, though!

Thanks, loosie, for any time you do take to help others out. May we all remember to Pay it Forward.
