What a great and informative event this was. Very glad to have gotten to attend, and to meet some great farriers from around Indiana. Never stop learning!

Thank you for everyone who came out last night to our January meeting of Pizza & Podiatry! We had a great discussion about hoof wall avulsions and then dissected two hooves - one with a keratoma and one with a septic coffin bone.

Sometimes a horse needs to learn the skills of standing for the farrier, and that is where a great trainer comes in. I've worked closely with Bill from
New Beginnings Stables for many years now. Some horses (and owners) need the extra confidence a good trainer can provide. Give him a call if you are ever in need.

Happy with this little mare and her progress, this is her second shoeing, and her foot is looking much more collected and tidey. Looking back at pictures always helps me see where I want to improve on the next cycle.
She's going to get to do some fun trail riding this year.

I got to work on a pretty interesting case this week. This horse presented lame, and the vet was called to do some x-rays. We found the horse not only had some rotation of P3 (coffin bone)but also some white line disease up the front of the wall on both front feet.
The vet was able to Dremel out the junk, and get to healthy tissue. I then applied a supportive shoe, and pour in pad.
Not every day I get to I work on a case like this, so I enjoyed the experience and very much liked helping this guy feel more comfortable 😊

DO YOU KNOW WHAT CAUSES GRASS FOUNDER?

Spring is a wonderful time of the year, but it may be the beginning of some serious problems for horses vulnerable to grass founder β€” like horses that are over the age of 10, easy keepers, overweight or cresty-necked.

Laminitis or founder, as it is commonly called, is inflammation of the laminae of the horse’s foot. Laminae are the delicate, accordion-like tissues that attach the inner surface of the hoof wall to the coffin bone (the bone in the foot). A horse suffering from laminitis experiences a decrease in blood flow to the laminae, which in turn begin to die and separate. The final result is hoof wall separation, rotation of the coffin bone and extreme pain. In severe cases, the coffin bone will actually rotate through the sole of the horse’s hoof where it becomes infected and can ultimately end in the horse having to be euthanized.

Laminitis can be triggered by different causes, like repeated concussion on hard ground (road founder), grain overload, retained placenta, hormonal imbalance (Cushing’s syndrome), obesity, and lush grass.

In cases of grass founder, the sugar fructans produced by rapidly growing grass stimulates an overgrowth of bacteria in the horse’s large intestine. The bacteria produce and release toxins (endotoxins) that are carried by the bloodstream to the foot where they cause damage to the laminae and small blood vessels.

The best way to deal with laminitis is preventing and managing the causes under your control. Consult your equine practitioner for further information and to formulate a plan tailored to your horse's individual situation. If you suspect laminitis, consider it a medical emergency and notify your veterinarian immediately.

The boys were excited to spend time with Amanda today, including the little dude about to check her pockets πŸ˜†
When a horse has a broken pelvis and needs the old shoes off, hoof walls are crumbling, nails popping out and at risk of injury, your farrier goes above and beyond. Let me tell ya, if want to skip squat day at the gym, just learn to work on hooves. Cronin Farrier Services Sally lifted and stood on her own freewill. This mare is spectacular in every aspect. We went slow and gave more breaks than she thought she needed. More pics and videos will be posted once I get moving. I'm playing catchup today so please be patient. #squats #farriersofinstagram #farrier #farrierlife #rescuehorsesofinstagram #standardbred
Thanks for pulling the old shoes and trimming the feet that were more than overdue. Our new mare is very thankful for her new pedicure and normal toe length. L- before trim R- after trim
Great work today, we certainly gave you a challenge with this new horse. Always much appreciated! Be safe and stay cool!
I spy our favorite FARRIER! Amanda Claire Greenberg ❀️❀️❀️❀️
He really is sweet, I swear.
You had a lot of work to do on this guy!
