Delaware Natural Hoof Care

Case Study Onyx

This is Onyx, a Quarter horse mare and long term shod.  We removed her shoes in this photo and in one trim you can see how the hair line has become straighter.  Most of all you can see how the heels "stood up". The application of an arch in the quarters shows the relief and relaxation in the hoof and surrounding soft tissue, in only one trim.  Why this arch is not applied to more horses in the treatment of underrun heels one can only guess. I have seen it work miracles.
