A Hoof (Orthopaedic) Diary

In their everyday working life, hoof orthopaedists chance upon various unfit and partially quite dramatical hoof conditions. As can also be seen from the discussions in our forum, there are recurring typical cases - typical with regard to the causes as well as to the documented processes of treatment. It is intended to present such typical "hoof fates" here in an irregular series of articles.

In this way, we would like to enable horse owners to sharpen their senses, and we would also like to demonstrate by the cases shown here what hoof orthopaedics is effectively able to do and within which timespans these processes may possibly be realised.
