Four weeks into the mission of “regrow hooves”, my big Trakehner Kroni is finally feeling pretty good. We had torrential rain yesterday, so I booted him up and took him out for a hack figuring the footing would be nice and soft. He was eager to go and showed none of the soreness that had plagued him over the past few weeks. There was no forging, no short steps, just a happy horse.
Of course, I’ve tried so many things — Formula4Horses, Durasole, Wunderhoof — that I’ve no idea which of these has made such a difference, or whether it’s just been a question of time.
Regardless, it was great to be back on him.
