Harry… Vet referral to a 30 year old leisure horse. Harry is a retired leisure horse with severe dorsal wall cracks to all 4 feet. Due to very overgrown and neglected feet a very heavy four point trim was applied to all four feet. The dorsal wall cracks were debrided and then a manuka honey barrier was applied to the sensitive laminae, before equilox and kevla dorsal wall patches were applied.
Eight weeks later Harry was shod in front with rocker toe four point shoes. Due to the hard and rough ground in the paddock most of the dorsal wall cracks have grown down from the coronary band and have been re-patched.
The client is thrilled with how the feet look and the way Harry is now able to happily canter around the field, pain free!!
Another success for Chapel Forge and very satisfying to see a horse out of pain and happy clients!
