This is Jay Jeaux owned and ridden by Cynthia Larose-Goulet. This 12 year old jumper mare that came up very lame with shoes. An X-ray result from the vet: distal sesamoid bone on the distal surface presence of significant invaginations/calcification minor of the suspensory navicular ligament/angulation of P3-slightly tipped(2-4%). Result from improper shoeing, huge heels and lack of frog to ground support. The mare was very lame on July 16th 2008, the vet removed the shoes to take x rays that day. The owner was advised by the vet to get the hooves rebalanced so I was called in.
