Met a truly fab lady the other day who clearly loves her horse (we will call him Fred) and puts his needs first. They are both just beginning the journey that so many of us have found ourselves on. The scenario goes like this:
Fred is constantly tripping, has had two abscesses in one year and maggots in one foot. His carer has sought professional advice from more than one source, but Fred continues to trip. Fred is shod every six weeks, seen by a vet when needed and has every care and attention lavished on him.
Because so many of us start the barefoot journey with similar scenarios I thought it might be useful to hand over the commentary to readers for this one. So just based on the picture below; what would you think and what other views of the hoof would you like to see?
And on behalf of all readers and the horses that benefit - thank you to Carer and Fred for allowing us to use these photos.
