    I have applied quite a few equiflex shoes, most on forefeet. In my experience they hold up as well as a steel shoe in most cases. It is important that the farrier drive the nail heads firmly ...

    Casting covers the hoof wall and potentially seals in moisture between the cast and the hoof wall as well I have removed casts from hooves that had been on a couple of months and the wall was quite...

    If she has a great farrier ,she should not have 2 inches of heel.

    Correct shoeing would be healthier than casting.
    A good farrier (not a hoof trimmer)would be able to properly shoe the horse.
    If the horse is difficult then veterinary sedation the first time or...

    By the way, true navicular bone changes, impar ligament pain, collateral coffin joint ligament pain, and coffin joint pain are all going to be shod pretty much the same way for treatment...

    That was going to be my exact reply. All too many lameness issues stem directly from the farrier work. A LITTLE imbalance or a little leverage on the bottom of the foot can cause subtle pain in...

    A helmet cam on the out rider. Neat!
    I used to gallop and pony in the mornings, (not out ride). And those poor stoic pony horses get kicked, bumped stepped on, climbed on, you name it. They...

    She is 17, a mare, and IR. Those three factored together put her at a HUGE risk (well.... about guaranteed, actually) of laminitis. And subtle off and in lameness especially on hard ground is one...

    It would not still have been too thin if the shoes were left on that long. Soles grow/thicken with time. Four months will grow an entire new sole. So a thin spot should be filled in easily by two...

    Horses are not put in pads because of bad shoeing. They are put in pads because something was wrong with their feet. Sometimes opads are just temporary extra protection and some horses have...

    Boy there is so much to think about in judging farrier work. Most problems develop over a long period when there is subtly incorrect shoeing so these evaluations may only show problems after a...

    From a farrier standpoint I would be looking from the feet up. The fact he had lameness that responded to coffin joint injections screams 'hoof imbalance' relative to the hoof capsule and it's...

    Also, excessively the tall heels WOULD strain the suspensory ligaments including where they attach to the sesamoids, so maybe long term terrible shoeing caused it. If so, poor horse.

    I can only guess sesamoiditis? But in all four legs? That would be really strange.

    If the heels of the feet are shod/trimmed way too tall it can cause abnormal tension in the extensor tendon. I would evaluate his feet to eliminate that possibility as part of the search for...
