Bea’s crack is healing well, it’s grown half way down the foot with the help of the last crack sutures and patch. As you can see she has steel crack sutures in place; this stabilises the crack. These are placed within the hoof wall. Previously we used a crack patch however this time it has been left off to allow the crack to be kept cleaner, allow the foot to be monitored closer and be able to apply hoof oil To maintain hoof moisture. She has gone back to normal shoes instead of barshoes! Keep an eye out for more news of bea’s case!
