Founder Recovery - Lucy


Lucy, the palomino, was foundered two and half years ago (today is 4/27/13). She went the traditional route of farrier, etc, with no improvement. Finally, in desperation, Lucy's owner allowed her friend to do a barefoot trim, which resulted in positive changes. However not enough. After searching the internet, the owner discovered the Hoof Guided Method. This is Lucy 5 months after starting the HGM trim. Founder is completely reversible and horses can return to 100% soundness.

All three horses in the video were lame until their owner started the HGM trim. In her own words, regarding the video: ". . . Lucy got the wind up her tail & shot back through the gate taking Bud & Boji with her - since it was the first time in a very long time that either Bud or Lucy have done more than hobble about, and since I had the camera at the barn to take hoof photos I took some videos - thought you might enjoy."

And I certainly did!

Bud is 23 and Boji is a Spotted Sadde Horse (TWH)
