This is a 10 year old Arabian that injured his Coronary Band as a yearling. The Trainer states the horse is never 100% sound on this Hoof and she feels it is deteriorating.

After evaluating the Hoof, the photo text points out:
A) The damaged Coronary Band
B) Wall growth abnormalities
C) Collapsed Quarter
D) Sustained Side
E) Heavy Bar Shoe (Trapped Clip)


This Coronary Band has a crusty texture, with no normal Coronary Band characteristics.

As I clean up the Hoof and open up the large crack in the Hoof wall, we find the crack where the movement is pinching this Arabian causing periodic soreness. This will need to be stabilized to alleviate movement.

We replaced the heavy bar shoe with this style of plastic shoe referred to as the "Flip Flop" with a flat steal insert around the toe. This will allow the collapsed Quarter to expand out and also relieve some concussion off the hoof wall

The "Millennium Patch" application technique was applied to this Hoof after the prep work was completed. This Arabian was sound on this Hoof and sent back to his normal routine in 3days. Lets take a look below at his progress!

Eight weeks after the "Millennium Patch" application technique was applied.

Look at the results:
A) Coronary Band crust is gone
B) New growth without the large separation
C) The collapsed Quarter is starting to expand

In time this Hoof will continue to take the form of a normal looking Hoof as it grows down. There will always be some light visible scaring from the initial injury at the Coronary Band. Look below for the 16 week status.


The Hoof on the left is the same as the Hoof on the right, 16 weeks after "The Millennium Patch Application Technique" was started. My Own "Rusty's Hoof Solution" has been applied to this Coronary Band once daily during the 16 week period.
