Mon Sharade was the first filly I bred, and I was elated when I first
saw her as she was beautiful, correct, and sweet. She had spirit to give
that little extra in the showring, yet happy and contented when people
were around her and she always loved and appreciated attention. Sharade
had a short but very successful showring career, that started at her first
show where she won Show Junior Champion Filly in a class that included
a filly who was sold to Quatar who later became Quatar Senior National
It was at the start of Sharade's performance training was when her freak accident occurred and it changed both of lives forever. Sharade's injury was life-threatening and she was given just a 30 percent chance to live. It was only through the care and concern of her veterinarians and all others who helped in her recovery through eight long months that combined with her incredible strength and will to live, that she made it.
Sharade's life this past five years can change in a flash, from being very comfortable and happy to showing the discomfort that the broken limb caused to her good foot. Recently the vets and farriers agreed to take a different approach to Sharade's hoof care, basically going natural, and it seems to be working. We are using with what I consider two of the best products on the market to allow Sharade to move comfortably while we attempt to help her grow sole on her rotated foot. Hoof Wraps are providing a wonderful support medium to allow the extra protection we need to keep her comfortable while allowing the Vettec products to mold to her hoof. Considering her injury was very similiar to Barbaro, the Kentucky Derby winner who lost his battle for survival, we know the products are making the difference for her. Thank you Hoof Wraps for all your support.
