Rosie with CentreFit Shoes

Will post more of a story later, for now here are the pictures with a few captions. Rosie, a 17 year old thoroughbred, has been barefoot/booted for at least 5 years. Always had flare if feet were not trimmed very frequently. Has always been somewhat tender on rocks without boots but came up lame about a 5(?) weeks before radiographs. Horse was not trimmed during those 5 weeks, since lameness showed up, as we thought we had maybe gone too far on the previous trim and caused lameness. So there is a lot of flare/long toe on the xrays. Our normal trims look about like what you see in the post-shod photos, which were 4 days after farrier trimmed and applied shoes. (Horse is not normally left to develop this much flare). Trim took a lot of toe off but almost nothing else, just a slight rasping of heels. Sole was left 100% as it was. Even laid-over bars were not touched! Back feet do not show any pain. Was lame on RF before shoes. 4 days later rode 3 miles including packed road surface without lameness.

A little flare in back but not too bad. Backs are mostly self-trimming, I usually just rasp a bit. Farrier left them as is.
