The photo text outlines the potential problem.
Site - 1 is where approximately 2 weeks ago an abscess relieved after the horse was lame for several days. This is already starting to grow down from the coronary band compared to Site - 2. The Site - 2 abscess occurred after the first abscess, the Hoof came sound and the horse was worked hard and ended up lame again after the work out, for several days until the Site - 2 abscess relieved. Let's take a look inside!

The Hoof Horn is not attached to the Sensitive Laminae. This indicates where the abscess migrated up the Hoof. This Hoof Horn and Sensitive Laminae will transition into dead tissue. The dead tissue will have to be removed precisely for proper healing.

The photo text points out; all the dead tissue has been removed exposing some sensitive tissue. Now that all the dead tissue has been carefully removed the healing process will rapidly progress. With proper care this Hoof became sound and was able to work in 3 days.

The "Millennium Patch" application technique was applied. This horse was back in training in 3 days and successfully raced 10 days later.

This is the Hoof eight weeks later.

A - the nice clean growth at the Coronary Band and the Quarter.

B- The "Millennium Patch" staying intact supporting the damaged Hoof wall after 6 weeks of successfully racing.
