More Adventures in Hoof Trimming

Pictures from George's first rehab case - Brek is due for a trim and I will try to post picture of what his feet look like now after 1 year of George trimming him.

Keep in mind, these are pictures after just ONE trim. Alleviating Brek's pain and starting him on a path of rehabilitation was our goal. This weekend will mark nearly a year of working with Brek - once I get the pictures up, you'll see what changes he's made over the last 12 months.

Just for comparison - one of our draft cross's (Shae's) hooves - successfully transitioned from full pads and shoes to barefoot and able to run over anything. This mare is a percheron/friesian who stands 17 hands tall and weighs 1400+ lbs.
