As all rehab owners know, the hard work, stress, blood, sweat and tears (ok, maybe not quite that bad, but you get the picture) really starts when horses get home and when there are still several months of rehab ahead of you.
This is the time when you find out how risky your grazing is, how supportive (or otherwise) your friends are and how many hours of exercise and work it takes to grow a new hoof capsule!
No-one can deny how committed Hannah has been. She and Candy have worked in rain, snow, sun and everything in between. More importantly, she (and her support team) have risen to the challenge of the steep learning curve which we have all experienced once our horses went barefoot and once the responsibility for the feet was mostly down to just horse and rider...
Its hard work and it can feel like a huge responsibility but, on the upside, no-one can take away the feeling of satisfaction and pride when it all comes together as it obviously has for these two!
Rehab owners all, I salute you :-)
