Here we have the before on the left side of the picture, the front left and below the front right, the after on the right side of the picture top left front and below right front.
The pictures are 5 trims apart.
What is so apparent is the rebalancing of the hooves anterior/ posterior, and front right to front left.
The right front was more clubbed than the left but we can see these 2 hooves after a few trims have better simitry to each other.
The back of the hooves are opening and the frogs are less stretched, less contracted, less weak and less receding up the back of the hoof. The heel bulbs are opening and the whole shape of the hoof is changing.
As the back of the hooves open and the rebalancing starts, look at the toe, a very obvious ridge, showing us were the toe wants to be. Or we can say next trim we will trim to just in front of the sole ridge.
Oh yeah! and the collateral grooves are opening part in parcel with the decontracting hoof.
You might be thinking....these are small changes for 5 trims, but really with hooves they heal on their own time, and for myself I think these changes are wonderful, a great HGM beginning!
THANK YOU TO B.B. FOR LETTING ME USE THESE PICTURES OF YOUR WONDERFUL WORK AND YOUR HORSES BEGINNING OF A NICE CHANCE TO HEAL THEMSELVES WITH HGM.
