Please remember!

The information presented on this blog represents "learning in progress" on my part, a horse owner, who was not satisfied with professional farriers and took matters in my own hands. As far as I am aware at the time of the post, the information presented is correct, but may change with me understanding more about hooves, in which case I will edit or remove the post. In order to follow my learning and understand everything about Molly's hoof, you need to start reading at the bottom.

Gus, Molly's companion

Molly's story is incomplete without talking about her buddy, friend and playmate, Gus. Gus is also 8 years old and most of the time it is nor 100% clear who exactly is the boss amongst those two horses.

I realized some time ago that I would have had the unique opportunity to study the changes in hooves when a horse is translocated from the desert (Southern Texas, where Gus was born and raised) to moderate climate, where he lives now. I have only a very incomplete record, but some quite illustrative pictures of the changes in his hooves such a move brought about. I will post them when I get a chance.
