The owner states the quartercrack has been nagging the horse for 4 months and is having a difficult time with it.

  1. As I open the injury site the hoof horn is not growing down from the coronary band together. A slight crack is visible to just below the coronary band.

At a closer view you notice the following:

  1. Dark area is moist rotting hoof horn; this condition inhibits good hoof wall growth.
  2. Note the yellowness of the hoof horn. This is an indication of long term internal trauma to this tissue.

As the injury site is cleaned out of all dead tissue and moisture we find that;

  1. The site cleans out nice to support sound growth the length of the crack.

The Millennium Patch Application Technique is applied to stabilize the injury.

  1. A vent is left so medication can be run through the injury site to support clean new growth.
