    Perfect Pony -

    When you turn it - the top of the cup will not turn at the same rate as the bottom that you are holding onto ;) Turn 1/4 or 1/2 turn and then wait a few seconds and then you will...

    Exactly. Shoes or no shoes, educate yourself on what a correct balanced trim is. Shoes on top of an incorrect trim will just make things worse.
  3. The asymmetry of his sole - the left being...

    The asymmetry of his sole - the left being narrower than the right, might just be a reflection of the shape of his coffin bone. To attempt to "balance" it, either with shoes or barefoot, without...
  4. You go, girl! ;) I agree 100% :yes:

    You go, girl! ;)

    I agree 100% :yes:

    Rick,


    Thank you :)



    It could be a trick played on the eye, you are right. Quien Sabe? :winkgrin:

    Rick, if you focus on the toe clip....you don't see the hoof wobble from the lateral side to the medial just prior to landing? *sigh* Maybe I just need new glasses??

    I agree, JSwan :yes:.



    That would be me that mentioned the wobble. I never said the shoe caused it. I asked if the weight of the shoe could cause it. However, I will add that the horses...

    Aahhhhhhh.........ok :winkgrin: Misunderstood ya, sorry.

    This is the one the OP posted that shows the med/lat wobble I mentioned.

    Ok, now maybe *I* am the one missing something :lol: I don't see anything that makes the "shoe" stand out as the "reason" for anything in that clip :confused:

    Well, crud. Didn't work that time either. The Simon Earle Racing vids have been around for a while. Just go to http://www.horsesfirstracing.com and (as of last night ;)) look for the barefoot...

    A2 - the OP posted two links, one shod and one bare.

    No idea why my link didn't work. I'll try again.

  12. The one thing that does make me wince a little,...

    The one thing that does make me wince a little, is the medial/lateral wobble of the fetlock on the shod horse. Horses joints are not intended for that type/direction of movement. Maybe it's caused...

    Nope, they aren't from the link I posted, but the same concept. If you scroll down the page I posted, you can watch some of the videos. The horses aren't the same. Sorry about that.

    I am free after X-mas through New Years, except for the 27th. Bring beer or red wine :lol::lol:. Seriously, I need to get it done.... It's no rush though. Any weekend is fine if I know in advance.

    Are those clipped from the Simon Earle Racing ones, I wonder? http://www.horsesfirstracing.com/index.asp?PageID=7 Darn, not sure where the download is, but I do have the DVD and while interesting,...

    Pam, if you are interested, let me know and we could get together to dissect my other foot that has a crenna/HKH/lesion at the toe. Just so you can see it.

    Jack mac -

    Isn't that exactly what happens after a foal is born? Bone is layed down according to pressure? The coffin bone is not fully formed or shaped at birth. Wouldn't that be a case of...

    Darn, my last post was eaten.

    Rick, Thank you very much :yes:

    I did take some, albeit poor quality, photos of the last one. It took 4 people to get this hoof wall off and it tore in the...

    Interesting that she never raced, A2 - and boy do I know what you mean by 2 too many! :lol:

    Interesting on multiple levels that TB race horses are what cadavers are most available to the school...

    A2 - is your mare an ex-racer? Sorry, I can't remember but if memory serves me correctly (which is often not the case lately :lol:) I thought she was an Arabian. The picture you posted was before...

    Every cadaver I have opened with a crenna at the toe, has had a corresponding notch in P3, but Rick, can you please expound and go a little more into location of the that you mentioned? I'd like to...

    Is there hunting that day, Apollos? Double check before you head out. Most parks have hunting on Saturday's. I'll never forget my first ride to the Eq Park and it was closed for a hunt. We...

    Last Sat. was the first time hubby and I had gone there. Went with some friends who had ridden there lots of times before. WE STILL were 4-wheelin' on some old forgotten, fallen tree blocked,...

    You are welcome! Maybe sometime we can meet and ride together. We were just at Little Bennett on Saturday and the Eq Park the weekend before.
  25. Also be sure to check for closures now that it's...

    Also be sure to check for closures now that it's hunting season. Some parks don't allow hunting.... I think the one by the little muni airport is one. Can't remember the name of it though! There...
