Step 1

• Align bony column

In the 2nd visit, owner’s wife advised that she was no longer worried about the right front limb and would I please get the other 3 feet going in the same direction – which I did.

N.B. Bert was only treated twice before owner reverted to current farrier and vet once limb was straight so no Step 2, as maintenance reverted to original team.
