Further Information

My lame thoroughbred mare and her crooked legs and crippled feet got me started fairly early to look closer into the subject hooves. As a barefoot trimmer I was dealing with every possible trimming style you can find to figure out how to give the best support, bring structures back to balance and function and improve comfort and movement. Later on, booting and glueing happened to be another tool in the tool box and as I became a farrier I also appreciated the Duplo Composite Horseshoe as an alternative to steel shoes for their characteristics.
