Wedge and bruising oh my
For those of you who don't know, Laz foundered a billion years ago (7 to be exact) and I/some amazing trimmers have been working on rehabbing his right hind hoof since. We have gone through 5 trimmers and back to our favorite who works with us long distance and helps correct/maintain and I trim in between. So Laz may get trimmed 4-6x by them in a year and I whittle every few weeks in between.
Anyhow, it's been a long while since I posted about it. Here are OLD photos from October 2014....
Soft crushed sole with so much bar issue/damage
Laminar wedge. Yikes. And off bi laterally big time
And now some comparisons from this past week:
Much better connection happening in hoof wall as it grows down and out
The sole is still soft in parts but the wall in beginning to develop a bit better. Heels are still crushed and forward/long toe but I'm slowly pulling back allowing the sole some elevated protection-it's so flat. Hard to tell from sole shot photo!
