Poco – October 2005

October 30, 2005 – Before Trim
After a year of trimming, the feet are getting more concavity, less toe callous, better frogs and better hoof shape. Damaged lamina and wall is still growing out, but it coming along nicely.

October 30, 2005 – After Trim
The feet are looking better and better. The white line is thinning up nicely, the concavity of the feet is becoming better and more apparent. The shape and direction of growth is doing better with time.

Poco, standing calm and quiet after her trim

Poco’s case is still ongoing. There will be more changes and developments throughout the upcoming year. She has more healing to go and more rehabilitation to go through. At this point though, it seems pretty evident that, short of some unforeseen problem, Poco will be doing a lot of trail riding in 2006, and for years beyond. There is a beauty, intelligence and quality to Poco that makes her a truly unique horse! After all, she IS a Quarter Horse! 😉
Stay tuned for future updates.

Poco – September 2005

September 4, 2005 (11 months after first trim)

No pictures of feet for this time. Thought I would spare everyone from being bored looking at feet yet again. I thought I would offer something more heartwarming. Poco continues to do better and better every month. Evelyn is riding up to 15 minutes at a time for up to 3 times a week as of this date. Because of the diligence and dedication from Evelyn, the Monzie’s and the moral and mental support from everyone else at Starlight Quarter Horses, Poco continues to advance by leaps and bounds. She continues to prove how much desire she still has to live, to serve and to please. She is very well cared for, her weight and muscling continues to be brought back carefully and her exercise rehab program is being closely followed. Poco is getting there!

See Poco in action!
