REHAB (and other misc.) PHOTOS
This is why I love my job! During a dissection when the wall and sole were removed, the lamina peeled away and what we saw was a perfect picture of the circumflex artery that feeds the hoof! See how it intertwines with the coffin bone! Fascinating stuff.
Pandora's beautiful right hind hoof after her second trim. This is an excellent example of "passive" quarters. The sides of the hoof do not appear to be making ground contact but when the hoof flexes at the point that it is fully loaded, that is where the hoof will be able to expand and fill with blood. Once the hoof comes off the ground, the blood will flow back up the leg!
This is a pair of custom made dental impression material support pads. They can be used either under equicast for the duration of the application or used each time you ride in your Easycare boots.
