MARK'S CASE STUDIES & GALLERY

In this first photo you can see we have quite a nasty Vertical Crack in the hoof wall.

The wall has now been debrided and cleaned ready for the insertion of Imprint Hoof Repair granules.

When added to glue, the Imprint granules can be moulded to fill the crack...

...and then rasped down for a tidy finish.



This is me working with Mathew Barlow of Home Farm Equine to remove a small Keratoma from a client's pony.

Here you can see the fabrication of lateral extensions.

... and how the finished shoes look.

Now applied to the foot and prepared for filling.

The shoe glue is then applied to build up the hoof and cover the extension.

Here you can see how I made a Centre Bar Shoe adding Vettec firm pad material, giving caudal hoof support to a complex laminitic where direct frog pressure could not be achieved.

This photo shows a Third Millennium Tractor Pad with P3 gel pack underneath. Used for support cushioning and protection.

IN this photo you can see an Equieze Plastic Bar Shoe with P3 caudal gel pack. The shoe has been graduated on the lateral side to encourage level footfall and even-weight bearing.

This is another Equieze Shoe this time with stud holes that was applied to an Eventer, giving flexibile support with less weight than a steel shoe.
