Older horse, been through the mill, current fix is heart bars in front, vet says nothing more can be done and if they don't work then call it a day.
I'm asked to peek over stable door - horse definitely not happy. Owner not happy. So a date was fixed. To pull the shoes that is.

|Note filler on inside of right fore|
|Immediately post deshoe|
I always ask owners and carers for updates and this is what I got today:
"Well like a 2 year old to lead and a greyhound when turned out! He's never been like this before think I might have shoes put back on! Only joking his stride length in front has lengthened a lot, his walking perfectly on road and on stones path, slightly footy when turning. His frogs look even better than yesterday it's absolutely amazing, I've even showed YM the pics!!"
Not bad for 3 days deshod.
And the pain? Well that's nearly all mine - my arms are killing me! :-)
