I was trainned at MN School of Horseshoeing 25 years ago and have been a
years
16 years full-time, 9 years part-time.   After growing up 'in and
around' the show horse business, forgive me
, but I am a little partial toward
the less "showy", more practical, areas of the horse industry. There's
nothing wrong with the "show horse" end of things
in itself, but I'm just a
little
worn-out on the "show horse" way of looking at things. I've been
there already, at every level, and I've had my fill.  It's become a little much
more like "show business" than "horse business" and I'd rather not
gravitate in that direction any more than I have to
, although I do enjoy the
show barns that I currently do.  And
, there are a lot of "show horse"
oriented people who I get on with very well.  But I do like to focus mainly
on lameness diagnosis
, treatment, and prevention.  Well...and serving the
pleasure, performance and sport horse.
Maybe we'll see you out on the trail.

After initial trim.
And finally:
The mystery is over...this dislocation is not able
to be fixed.  The bones will (perhaps)
fuse in the
new precarious position and so we'll have to wait
and see how it goes
.   There is nothing holding the
horse up but ligaments.  Far from normal with
very poor long-term prospects.  Re-injury very
likely.  We're waiting until the horse can bear
weight on the damaged foot before we trim  the
opposite front foot.  And waiting...and... waiting....

Are you aware
that:
it's legal
for you to give
your horses the
rabies shot
yourself. Most
any small
animal vet will
sell it to you.  It
is not legally
required with
equine to have it
done by a
veterinarian.
 
The protocol is
different than
with small
animals.

Semi-retired. I still do emergency foot care and consult, and still do horses, part-time,
within half an hour of Gleason WI, so give me a try.
