Today let’s talk a little about a common hoof disorder known as Laminitis. This disorder causes the laminae of the hoof wall to become inflamed which leads to separation. The laminae provides support to the coffin bone so when separation begins to occur the coffin bone will start to rotate downward. As rotation occurs, the coffin bone presses against the sole of the hoof causing lameness. In very severe, untreated cases the tip of the coffin bone can pe*****te the sole of the hoof.

There are a variety of causes and risk factors, but what we see most commonly is a poor diet consisting of too much sugar or excess grain. Something to keep in mind is Laminitis requires ongoing management because once a horse develops it, it is likely to reoccur.

Us here at Glacier Horseshoeing have successfully managed many cases of laminitis and are very educated in the care and treatment of this disorder. If you have any questions for us, please feel free to reach out!

Before & After trim on a club foot!

A club foot is defined as “an abnormally upright hoof with long, contracted heels and a prominent or bulging coronary band.” This syndrome is caused by the shortening of the musculotendinous unit (the deep digital flexor muscle and tendon). A club foot alters a horse’s biomechanics, but with proper care affected horses can lead a comfortable and normal life.

Even in these colder months it is still important your horse stays on a strict 6-8 week schedule! This is a pony that went too long without a trim. A healthy horse is a happy horse.

Winter is for skiing on Sundays and shoeing horses on Monday morning 🙌🏻

The winter months are typically a tad slower for us, giving us some time to refresh but come March we ramp back up to our busy season. With that said, if you’ve been thinking of hopping on the schedule - now is the time! It won’t be too much longer before Spring makes an appearance.

It might be the season for all things spooky, but this white line disease case is giving us a real fright 😨

This will take some rigorous care, but if all goes well the hoof will be fully grown out in about a year.

Thank you Jesse for the shoes. 🐎😊
Jesse does an amazing job. I always know that my heard, from a 30yr mare to a 4yr mule are always in good hands. And besides "a girl can never have to many shoes!"
Jesse is a solid guy. My dad has had Jesse shoe his horses for some years.
Stay warm and busy out there, Jesse. God Bless you!
