My how times flies, and as you can see, I am not a dedicated Blogger. It's been 2 years since my last post. Much has happened in that time. I had a full knee replacement on my right knee in January 2021 and then another full replacement on the left this past January 2022. Needless to say, I have a standing appointment with my physical therapist Carla every week. She is great at putting me back together when I mangle up a body part. And the ol’ body parts just don’t work like they used so I’m not able to go out and do maintenance hoof care in the field.
I still see hoof clients here mainly for rehabilitation or serious lameness issues. If you are concerned about how your horses' hooves look, how he/she behaves or has a lameness issue, I am available for consultation and rehabilitation. There is not much I haven't seen when it comes to distortion in hooves and not many hooves that can't be fixed. Founder hooves and navicular conditions used to be considered time to retire your horse, but now these and many other issues are treatable.
I’m still offering custom diet plans based on testing your hay, or average hay values for the area. I can recommend a custom mineral supplement based on the missing or deficient minerals in the hay forage. I calculate how much to supplement based on amounts in the hay and the correct ratios needed for optimum absorption and health.
LayzD also has a nice group of boarded horses here. They help pay my bills but also support The Wings Programs Inc. Without our boarders we would have a hard time supporting the rescue and sanctuary horses. Limited space is available for long term boarding but we always find room for short term/vacation boarding. If you need to travel and want a great place for your horse to stay while you are gone, check us out. We have both a 40’ and 60’ round pen, a 100x150 outdoor arena and 60’x80’ indoor arena.
