    Roseville has been hit by the developers pretty hard. While there are undoubtedly outlying areas that are still rural, I personally wouldn't want to live so close to high-density areas. Rocklin still...

    Several hours later, I'm going to assume you've been reassured by the vet or farrier. My 2 cents though:

    Since there's no blood, it's probably just a really good bruise. Hitting it with Betadine...

    Are you saying the horse still has shoes, on, and the nail heads are missing from the shoes? Or is the horse barefoot, with clinches left in the hoof?

    As said, nails can shear off due to sudden...

    Everything 'depends', doesn't it? We are talking horses here. :winkgrin:



    Well Rick, that depends. Out here, we don't get to have hooves sink in the mud for more than 3~4 months out of the...

    Used together, for 2~4 shoeings, this would be my suggestion. The Dormosidan to keep him calm, and the glue-ons to get him to understand his foot isn't going to hurt every time. Once the foot has...

    A wedge pad is usually considered to be a temporary orthopedic 'fix'. In my experience, a wedge pad always continues to crush the heels, unless a firm packing material is put into the sole of the...

    My instant 'take' is that the dorsal wall needs to be brought back. As afar as the other balances, we'd need more, in focus, pics.

    Looking through your post history, I'm going to have to recommend rose oil, and magnetic pastern bands.
  9. Korrekt! :yes: Nothing off the palmer (ground)...

    Korrekt! :yes:

    Nothing off the palmer (ground) surface, and a dub, or even a rocker back to the white line of the foot. (Assuming the vet feels the rocker won't weaken the toe area and cause more...

    Make sure your vet either leaves a written shoeing prescription, or that the farrier talks to the vet directly. Since the vet is recommending the farrier, I assume they're on good speaking terms. :D...
  11. The dorsal wall needs to be brought back, and the...

    The dorsal wall needs to be brought back, and the right front looks a little smaller than the left. Nothing terribly unusual in 80% of the horses I see.
    A couple good trims or shoeings, and the...

    In general, one removes the splay. (AKA:flare)
    Is there a conformational reason for said splay?

    Because Ti is cool? I love my titanium tongs. :D

    Fharoah,
    Pads do not rot a foot. Retained moisture, or (gods forbid!) poor husbandry is the predominant cause of bad feet. If you're in a damp...

    An onion shoe, is an orthopedic 'fix' for horses with corns. If you need more heel support, ie: a horse with low/underrun heels, you're better off with a straight bar shoe, and possibly some...

    I'm not sure that anyone, Vet/farrier/horse channeler, can tell when the inflammation is gone, short of an MRI.


    In my case, since my favorite vet is quite familiar with laminitis, I rely upon...

    I can understand the logic behind that argument, but...

    You've got a partially detached hoof wall, (depending on how bad the laminitic event is/was) and now you're putting stress on the coffin...

    You folks seem to be missing the point that that's 200+ pounds of perfectly good fertilizer! Dig a hole, dump the deer in, add a touch of lime, and plant a tree on top! Bonus points if it's a tree...
  19. If your horse is still in an active laminitic...

    If your horse is still in an active laminitic phase, this is a Bad Thing To Do. I realize that owners hate seeing their horses cooped up, and that the horses want to get out, BUT... Exercise is hard...

    I'm with Tom. Going by the one photo, you at worst, need a little Equithane (not Equicast) to keep the shoes on. If you've got a touch of white line, a couple Cleantrax treatments should clear that...
  21. If you want to 'fix it now', I'd recommend a pour...

    If you want to 'fix it now', I'd recommend a pour in pad like Equithane. Otherwise, as already mentioned, Durasole is the cost effective, albeit slightly more time necessary fix. :yes:

    Yucca can help. Keeping her trimmed on a regular schedule, and rolling the toe a little may help as well. It'll all depend on where the chip is, and where in her stride it bothers her.

    Pictures would be nice.

    Is this animal stalled at all so his feet can dry out?

    And since this problem keeps happening, I think if it were my horse, I'd move from iodine to Coppertox....
  24. If the two more likely scenarios don't pan out,...

    If the two more likely scenarios don't pan out, (ulcers and teeth) I'd suggest you also check his sheath.

    Sorry, not special. :D

    Out here, when an oak looses a limb, or when fall rolls around and the leaves start dropping, our horses find both leaves and branches quite acceptable. A couple of them...
