Today is was just raining, raining, raining...
It smelled like a nail salon at the vet clinic as Pinky got her special glue on acrylic shoe and an acrylic hoof patch.
Here are a few photos of the event.

|Someone isn't easy to work on, and requires a little sedation.|

|shoe is on!|
|After drilling a few small holes, Doc inserts metal "zip ties" across the hoof split.|
|He twisted the wires together to form a patch.|
|Wires are on, now for more acrylic.|
|Some strange "vet cart" here! Complete with a drill.|
I didn't get a picture after the vet wrap was removed. It looks awesome, and VERY stable. She'll stay in this for hopefully 6-8 weeks and then have at least one more glue on reset.
The vet and farrier have a client who is using these shoes on her trail horse and they are working very well. Pretty cool :)
Off to the PNER convention tomorrow!
