    So...you would like to do xrays and your vet is basically denying you?
    Are they opposed to making money in general?
    Sorry but that's just so weird.
    Given his recent scare with the hot hooves and the fact that he ist so sensitive I would do xrays for my own peace of mind. And have the blood work done to check for IR and check his levels.

    No. My vet would never deny anything I insisted on doing. He just feels putting shoes on will solve my issues & save my pocket book.

    This vet is seriously the best there is! He trumps the lameness specialists a million fold.

    If you saw the single bail of hay that came into the barn, you wouldn’t be the least bit surprised the hooves were hot. It was a mistake. It’s over & done with. I just have to accept the fact it happened and I have basically the most sensitive horse in the barn......*cough* White Wonder

    HUGE developments in the last week with Zee’s feet!! Here are new photos of his front feet. Just heels & sole.

    I need to jump on my iPad and do side by sides to show just HOW MUCH toe callus sole depth has developed. It’s just insane. Way more than the photos even show.

    @Arem - you gotta try this Hoof Armor on Brandi!! My farrier has had just unbelievably good results in every horse she’s used it on so far!
