Healthy Hoof Trim 4

Before Trim

Healthy Hoof Natural hoof care
   

This 24 year old Arabian mare was donated to the Fischer Equine Lameness Foundation.  Before trim the horse’s hooves were characterized by overgrowth, excessive heel height and lack of symmetry (imbalance).  These hoof abnormalities resulted in adaptive postural changes characterized by a dip in front of the withers and the horse standing “under” herself.

After Trim

   

The first trim produced the following changes; symmetry was restored, heels lowered and excess hoof removed.  Immediately after first trim, the postural adaptations improved, horse stood comfortably, the dip in front of withers diminished, and the horse ambulated with a normal gait.
