Shasta’s Hoof


Reflecting back on what Shasta’s hoof looked like when I adopted him in 2008

Mike Hayward Horseshoeing has been a blessing because he is so experienced and knowledgeable, spending years to reconstruct Shasta’s hoof.  He uses a small torch to remove bacteria and dry the hoof before gluing on the shoe.


Mike gluing on a Poly Flex Shoe.  Shasta has arthritis and a shoe cannot be nailed on, it causes too much pain and pressure.


All done for this month!
