Split hooves

Sue Hansen

Yesterday my farrier told me he wouldn't do the recommended trim for my mare with laminitis because he had never shortened the toe that much and he feared the trim could cause the hoof to split, which is a death sentence.  (his words)  I told him I would ask if there had been any cases of this occurring.  I am also meeting with my vet to discuss the trim this afternoon and hopefully she will investigate further with an open mind.
