Tulsa is a mare who has been done by a professional ever since the owner puchased her. We are neighbors,
my daughter in-law and we ride together. On one of our rides I asked if her mare was limping and she
said yes and has been gimpy for awhile, after our ride I fitted her mare with Jerrys boots and the mare rode off much better. A
pair of boots and pads were ordered and the mare has been ridden in them for the rest of our summer.
When I fitted the boots I asked her if I could trim off the flares, and roll her toes, I pointed out the rings on all 4
feet, about the cornet band, and stated that I would be very concerned about them. They were soft and swollen.
All 4 feet were off balance and flairs visably noted. Shortly after I began trimming her.
This picture is prior to me ever touching the mare. Notice the unbalanced hoof, flares and the soft swelling above
the cornet band.
