Sometimes the profession of veterinary medicine intersects with other professions; this is an example of the intersection of veterinary medicine and horseshoeing. This horse kicked a horse trailer (bad mistake) and fractured his hoof capsule allowing dirt and debris access to the inside of his sensitive laminae. We removed the overlying sole and hoof wall, cleaned out the debris, stabilized the hoof with a shoe, and applied a bandage to keep everything clean while it is healing. The prognosis is good!
