Boris - 3 year old 17hh + Shire X Hanoverian 

Boris arrived here shortly after his wonderful owners bought him, as they could see his feet needed some work and attention. As you can see, his feet were weak with multiple splits and subclinical Laminitis through lack of movement, trimming and the wrong diet.
















The bottom set of photos are his feet during his stay with us - there is an event line half way down which is his 6 months of growth while a PB resident. His white line is tightening and his frog and heal are continuing to widen - our trimmer, Georgie Harrison of Hoof Matters, trims so his weight bearing points are activated.


Boris was on a 6 week trim cycle and lived in a herd of 8 on a non grass track system while with us. With a low sugar diet of adlib meadow hay, continual movement and a barefoot trim, Boris's feet will continue to better with time. When Boris left PB to go back to his family, he had a least another 6 months of growth left for a new healthy hoof.
