founder

Only 6 weeks in between those images of a front hoof. This horse suffered too long by a former laminitis and false work of various veterinarians and farriers. My opinion is that such long walls are triggering laminitis and founder. Now he’s able to be ridden again, which is something his owner honestly never thought would happen…

Yes, it’s still the same hoof after 6 weeks, but a new horse with a lot of power 🙂

long period bad shoeing

HOVAKUTEN Angela Savoia: En effektiv behandling av symptomen är bättre än att dölja problemet!
Then and now – after 7 months orthopedic barefoot trimming.

Long time shoeing and wrong angles reduced the blood circulation in his feets. He performed quite well, but his hoofes were growing very slowly – only 3mm a month, and in poor quality. Finally, even small successes accumulate to a big step forward: The hoof wall has become stronger and the sole works well again, so that he can continue to walk barefoot. And look, he’s smiling!

Then and now – after 7 months orthopedic barefoot trimming.

hyperextension of the deep flexor tendon

If the hoofs have become too long, it is quite painful to roll over. Then the hooves become more torn on the back parts instead of the toe – the beginning of a vicious circle with reduced mobility and overstretching of the deep flexor tendon.

Much better positioning by ONE (!) orthopedic hoof treatment.
