Star – 21 y/o Percheron/TB Mare

Star was adopted by her current owner in 2017, the previous owner was going to euthanize her due to laminitis. Despite having Star seen regularly by a vet and shod every 6-8 weeks, she did not improve. In June 2019 she was radiographed due to chronic lameness and the prognosis was not good. She was found to have 1mm of sole on her right fore and 5mm on left fore. Vet advised that Star would soon need to be euthanized as nothing else could be done. Her dedicated owner started looking for answers and the universe responded.

We took over Star’s hoof care in July 2019. Her shoes were removed, we applied a de-rotation trim every 3-4 weeks, she wore Cavallo hoof boots with Easycare pads for protection, and Artimud was used to treat and prevent trush. She was started on Aminotrace+ supplement immediately. We are extremely pleased with the dedication of Star’s owner and barn staff. Hoof rehab is a team effort. We are looking forward to having her radiographed again in a few months to show that founder CAN be healed!!!
