Last winter our mare had an altercation with a fence the result of which left her with a chunk of her near fore hoof split open & needing to grow out. Our vet advised she needed to go on a walker as she couldn't be ridden & gave us a rehab program for her. We delivered her and her rehab program to Matawhio. 4 wks later we collected our mare. She looked great as did her hoof. Fully recommend.
