Eight Months Later

The hooves are changing dramatically.


Feb. 4, 2004

Snow is such a wonderful way to see what is going on with the feet. Here Druid's sole looks really pock marked. There is a huge hole at the heel triangle. Luckily, I didn't get too upset when things fell off of his feet. I had gotten used to it.

Good thing I didn't panic any more. This was another one of those days.

This is what it looked like after this particular trim.

Druid's feet are beginning to look more and more normal. The bizarre height is going away. This was the very beginning of my trimming from the top approach. It was so early on that I didn't even recognize it as such, but look at the difference in his feet.

From the end of January to the end of February was amazing. His feet were adjusting on his their own.

Here is Druid with my sons, Nick and Connor, and my dog, Grace.
