Bailey is overweight and
suffers from sweet itch. All
necessary measures are
already in place to combat
these symptoms.
Bailey had the shoes
removed and it is clear he
has considerable
contraction of the heels,
an elongated toe and his
fogs have a lot of thrush in
them. The quarters are
cracked and lacking
structure along with a lack
of internal soft tissue in
the foot. The heels are too
low and the frogs are bruised and
a heamotoma was present.
Current Diet grass, hay, chaff, vitamins, minerals, magnesium, linseed
Intended Use pleasure horse
Recommendations Milton every three to four days (read instructions for dilution on the
