From Ian Gajczak
"Little Miss T with her comfy’s on!!This is my laminitic pony client little Miss T. She has had some moderate rotation which has been addressed and her feet are looking good.
Unfortunately we have been struggling to stabilise her metabolic rate. As such we have fitted Glushu Minis to hopefully provide her some comfort and additional support if she were to have an unfortunate relapse whilst adjusting medications.
I have used GluShu Minis a number of times now. They are great shoes with minimal time for horse/pony to be weight bearing on 1 (potentially sore) leg/foot. This is because most gluing/fitting is done whilst standing with both feet weight bearing. This is a huge bonus when dealing with a sore laminitic.
I recommend Glushu for any farrier treating a difficult case of laminitis.”
