Laminitic Pony

Just a quick one - below is the left hind of a laminitic pony I'm trimming right now. I suspect he has high ringbone too on this hoof.

Not only has the toe shortened dramatically, but the heel bulbs are of a much better quality.

What else do you see?


  1. Wow!

    The distance from the apex of the frog to the end of the toe is remarkably shorter. That is amazing.

    the foot looks rounder
    the whiteline is tighter
    the sole has exfoliated and looks like it is getting some depth (at least not bulging out)
    more space in the heel buttresses
    bars are more defined
    bigger frog

  2. Looks like you also backed up the heels nicely and got that lateral heel to begin to even out..

  3. The changes in this foot have astounded me - can't wait to see how it looks once the new growth reaches the ground.
