This Hoof was described by the trainer as having a nagging soreness.

After a thorough evaluation these three items were noticed:
1. Abscess evidence at the Coronary Band
2. Fever Rings down the entire Hoof wall
3. Invasive Heel

These findings all point towards long term, over-all structure trauma to the Hoof.


The photo text layout describes the section of the Hoof that has been determined to be undermined.

Let's take a look inside!


The area outlined above is undermined; there is plenty of dead tissue in this area. This is indicated by the black and yellow surfaces in the undermined section. This tissue must be precisely removed with out damaging any live Sensitive Laminae tissue for the healing process to move forward where the Hoof will become sound.

Let's take a look!


The photo text points to the clean Sensitive Laminae all the undermined tissue has been removed and no other damaged has occurred. The clean Coronary Band from where the abscess relieved, we have some minor bleeding from the Coronary Venous Plexus. Now that the undermined area has been carefully cleaned the healing process will move forward.

The "Millennium Patch" application technique was applied to this hoof and this Standardbreed Trotter successfully raced that night! Let's look at this Hoof after four months.

With "The Millennium Patch Application Technique" this Hoof successfully grew out to become a clean healthy Hoof. This horse has been back into the excitement and performing during this time.
