Re: Shakira: Hoof Pics and XRays

Hi Larissa,

Good on you for working on the handling aspect of this. Lots of work in the short term but such a huge payoff in the end.

From the photos, the toes are still much too long horizontally, so if you can do anything about that aspect it would be a good place to start. Heels are underrun, walls have flaring that will need to be addressed as well.

Radiographs show that the front coffin bones have remodeled with ski tips on both. All coffin bones are ground parallel, although the LF may actually have a negative plane coffin bone angle . RF appears to have some ringbone that may be impacting the joint. That could be the reason you have more trouble lifting the LF - her RF may actually be the more painful one.
