Barefoot Horse

Founder Rehabilitation case 2

Now 17 years old, this gelding had a history of founder since the age of 5. One look at his feet had me running for my camera, as I saw how awful his feet were, but what potential there was for improvement. He was functionally sound, and did not appear to be acutely laminitic.

Front feet before trimming. Right front is worse.

Right front, before. Large break in angle between healing (top) and stretched. Huge lever forces on toe.
