Case Studies

correct trimming matters

This foot shows what happens when bars are allowed to overlay sole.. the black spots are where bruising has created abscessing. The lateral flare has been caused by the bar material that was pushing the wall outward. You can see that the bar is curved out more than it should be and will require a few trim cycles to no longer cause issues. This horse was sound as soon as the bar material was removed from the sole.
