Meet Pokey, a 16-year-old registered with the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) with a tale of resilience, hope, and healing. Pokey was trapped in a seven-year battle with White Line Disease, an infection that took a toll on all four of his hooves, complicating traditional treatments due to his minimal hoof growth.
The infection brought severe complications: symptoms similar to founder or laminitis, crushed heels, dropped soles, and sensitivity to pressure. This left Pokey with a thin, infected outer hoof wall that offered little support or protection. The concerns of his owner, veterinarian, and farrier escalated as the coffin capsule seemed to sink, signalling a significant deterioration in Pokey’s condition.
The Turning Point: FormaHoof
In the face of this debilitating condition, FormaHoof entered Pokey’s life, introducing him to a world of innovative, effective treatment. In just a few days after his first FormaHoof application, Pokey resumed a sound and normal life, a testament to FormaHoof’s transformative power.
With FormaHoof, Pokey was free to explore his pasture, undeterred by the challenging winter months of rain and mud. Remarkably, no additional treatments were needed throughout the FormaHoof cycle.
The Outcome: Resilience and Recovery
Eight weeks later, a significant improvement was visible. After the first set of FormaHoof applications were removed, a visible improvement in Pokey’s hoof recovery, growth, and coffin capsule integrity was noticeable. The remaining affected hoof tissue was removed, and Pokey received his second FormaHoof application.
