Solar view hoof crack

End May 2010
End August 2010

We looked at a significant hoof crack a couple of days ago.  The above photos are of the solar view.  (Apologies for lack of focus in second, I've broken my camera.)

Look carefully at the toes.  In the second photo the deep part of the crack has reached the ground and formed a hole.  This will be flushed with a non necrotising product (probably salt water) but not packed.

Putting the crack to one side, can you see how the frog is getting healthier, the heel buttresses have more substance and the white line is tightening up.
