Hoof cracks

End May 2010
End August 2010
This horse is 22 years old and in May 2010 was already officially retired with an unresolvable lameness.

Extensive vet tests had revealed no probable cause other than psychosomatic. The farrier had found no fault with her feet.

The first picture shows a hind foot, front view six weeks post the last farrier visit.

The second picture shows the same foot 3 months later after 3 AANHCP protocol trims. This horse is now sound enough for quiet hacking which she apparently thoroughly enjoys! :-)

Age need not be a barrier to improving feet, regaining soundness or having a good time :-)

How did you get this to grow out? Did you put a strong bevel on it? My horse has a crack and it's getting worse, what would you recommend?

P.s. I just found your blog and I love it!!
