Hunter, customer just bought it and it went lame. Wasnt hard to find the problem.
Got a needle and managed to hook this thorn out.
David, Should we be calling you Androcles from now on?
This is the horse that broke my hand, so Daniel isnt applicable!
Watch the hand gestures!!!
LOL I didn't even notice that.
I found it odd the way he was holding his finger in the first pick.
Yeah I did too, but still missed the blatant act. lol
You got a keep an eye on them Brits!!!
Now he ll be preening his self, don t give him any attention, that s what the crew suggested!
What angle was it on inside the capsule? Did they get antibiotics just in case?
I wonder if that would have shown up on an xray if it had not been visible from the outside.
Woody products show up as a "blurr' or dismissal in a rad in most cases. Somes cases where the "WOODY" is inflamed and swollen ; gas pocket and needs to blow....
A result of jumping a Berkeley hedge? Thorns finish a lot of horses seasons.
Would I also be correct in guessing this was at that yard we went to trim those horses?
Yes it is Marc.
Had another lame one today in the hunt kennels, Had a bissy day so swagged this out quick so not a world champ job Alex also had the anvil vice at college so a bit hammer finished. Horse had over reached and the heel was mobile and pinching on the soft horn. For those that might want a bigger shoe I agree but this horse needs a snorkel at the min to do its job. It was sound at the end.
Just wondering David why did you opt for this shoe and not a heart bar or a bar shoe?
Havent used one in a while and quick to make and light, I dont carry heart bars, to expensive to have complete range, but a heart bar would of done well, a straight bar would of not spread the weight sufficiently.
