The four photos below show a horse that had a hoof wall resection for 
WHITE LINE DISEASE.

As radical as it looks, the procedure, when done correctly, is painless for the horse. The pink areas are colored by medication, and are not bloody.
This horse was able to be ridden in less than 2 months.
If White Line Disease is attacked aggressively as soon as it shows up, only a small piece of hoof wall need be removed and the horse should have no down time at all.

Hoof wall resections are also done for FOUNDERED horses.
