Griton One Month Later –

June 4, 2006

I can't believe it's been a month since my horse injured his left front hoof. Where does time go? I took an updated photo of his sole to see how it had changed in a month. Here is the shot taken right after the injury showing the large chunk of bar and sole he knocked out. He undoubtly did it while running across the mountain and hitting a sharp rock. This caused a very bad bruise and extreme lameness –

Here it is two weeks later showing the effects of a 2" rain cleaning things up –

And here is the one I just took –

Wow! Exfoliating sole and some wall to actually trim! Looks like that big chunk of frog is working it's way off too. You can also see where he is continuing to maintain a just off center toe rocker. I'm going to have to take a careful look at his heels. It's hard to tell in this photo but it looks like one side might be wearing more than the other. This may not look very pretty but I'm hoping all of this loose stuff means we have a hoof that is actually starting to function.
