Hi all, I am a dressage / Three Day Event rider and just returned to India after 18 years studying/competing in the US. (4 year Equine Science Degree) However, there are no certified farriers here, in short...they need supervision in trimming and putting regular shoes on correctly. I have a new client here in Bombay that has a horse (Bolt) which developed laminitis after a bout with fever, and has subsequently foundered. I am attaching the x-rays of him that we took at each stage. I'm literally on my own here with this , and though I have several years of experience observing good farriers do countless therapeutic shoeings, (accompanied tons of horses to Rood and Riddle Podiatry Center as well) I have never been left to do it all myself...so I appreciate all the advice you folks might give me. He was immediately taken of all grain, and is only on a vitamin/mineral/protein supplement. He also has a muzzle and is allowed to eat his hay before feed time. We initially taped some soft foam padding under the frog, until we could source some high density strofoam. We applied the Styrofoam pads (as shown in below video) for a few weeks until the EDSS Steward Clogs arrived. STYROFOAM PAD VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzUeYjYe5yE The EDSS Steward Clog was ordered and I put it on with screws and glue. The exact process I followed is shown in the video below: STEWARD CLOG VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYS0fERpCXA&list=UUMOxK0M3dLb00bSQ_IN999Q The Clogs helped and he seemed a lot more comfortable...especially in the small sand paddock. It is now time to remove the first Clogs, but the last couple of days he has been a little more lame on the RF than usual. I'm not sure if he might be abscessing a bit (we knew that the disadvantage of the clogs was that we cannot view/treat the sole if it needs constant monitoring). I need help to assess where to go from here, trim the foot and put clogs on again? I know I will know more once I remove them and see whats going on, at which point I will post an update here. I need advice on a derotating trim, regardless of whether the clogs go back on or not. The RED circle in the Clog xray shows the nail taped to mark the breakover of the shoe The blue area shows the impression material. Thanks so much!
