“Hoof care with the emphasis
on treating the whole horse"
Cricket is a 5 year old Quarter horse
who was being shod incorrectly. You
can see in the "before" photo that the
hoof has a dish on the toe (meaning it
is dished out, the hoof should be a
straight line from the coronary band to
the ground.) Also the heels of her hoof
have grown over the shoe causing her
heel pain. In the "after" photo you can
see I brought the shoe further back and
the heels of the hoof are placed on a full
heel shoe. She now has no heel pain
and the hoof is much more balanced
and is doing great.
