The owner snapped this image of her horse who had just lost the heel of this hoof. It was very bloody. In this image a shoe has been applied to support the remaining hoof while the new hoof grows in. Note the granulation tissue (pink) which needs to be kept level to allow a new heel to form. It may actually prevent new hoof growth. I have no follow up on this case.
