|Freddie and Daniel Crowe, Farrier
"Freddie is by far the best
teacher and farrier I have ever met and worked with"
Cheryl Gill: Situation:
17.3 hands warm blood fractured right hip joint causing him to shorten his stride on that leg. Compensating caused the left
front hoof to club and caused a rotation of the coffin bone. Solution: Freddie put a shoe on the right hind hoof to raise
and balance his hips. Result: Hips are now level and the left hoof has significantly less rotation. The horse is well on the
way to recovery.
Deborah Bennett: Situation: Her quarterhorse was extremely lame. Solution: The left front foot
was out of balance, torking on the pasturn creating pressure on the outside. Solution: Freddie had to only re-balance it.
Result: By that afternoon the horse was sound and has not had a problem since that day.
Kimberly: Situation: Paint
Horse that had 3-4 farriers previously work on him with many lameness issues. Solution: Feet were improperly balanced for
his conformation. Freddie shortened his breakover and increased the angle by 2 degrees. Result: By that afternoon the horse
Sharon Willis: Situation: Quarterhorse was lame in the hocks & stifles. The inside of the hooves
were too long causing him soreness and damaging the tissue in the joints. Solution: Freddie lowered the inside of his feet
to relieve the pressure and cause better alignment. Result: The horse went completely sound.
