This Hoof was cut out 10 days previous to the owner requesting my services. The Hoof has a "Wall Separation" and the trainers states the horse is still lame.

After evaluating this injury, the Hoof was drying over or scabbing. Injuries to Laminae Tissue need to heal and dry from the inside of the Hoof out to produce a sound Hoof and healthy growth. Under where the two lines meet you can see where I started the process of precisely removing the dead Horn and the shedding Sensitive Laminae.

As you look between the two lines the dead horn and damaged Sensitive Laminae have been precisely removed, while not to reinjury the Sensitive Laminae. This injury will now be able to breathe properly allowing for a speedy recovery

Applying the "Millennium Patch" application technique this horse was back into the excitement and racing successfully three days later.

The "Millennium Patch " application technique keeps the patch close to the original foot contour; there is no large bulge or unnecessary wall covered with the patching material that deprives the Hoof Wall of proper breathing and expansion characteristics. The "Millennium Patch" leaves the Hoof Wall as natural as it can be.

Sixteen weeks after the "Millennium Patch" application technique was applied, we have a nice clean new Quarter and a healthy looking Coronary Band.
