This is an old injury which the trainer states she has been dealing with over a couple of months. As the text points out they have the Quarter floated to assist in relieving pressure. Let's look inside!

The injury appears dry inside which is indicated by the small cracks, through the horn, and the yellow horn develops from the constant movement "tearing" of the Horn. The Horn turns into a yellow scare tissue mass in an effort to protect against further damage to good Horn. This Hoof needs to be stabilized to allow for knitting at the coronary band, which will produce clean solid growth.

The "Millennium Patch" application technique was applied and this horse was back into the excitement successfully jumping the next day.
