Case study example. Photos need to be good quality. Shift the page margins so the photos are as large as you can make them. This helps when your work is being assessed. Label each foot. Label each before and after photo. Place the before and after photos next to or underneath each other as in the example shown here. Try to get the same angle for the before and after photos. This particular case study does not have photos of the underneath of the hind feet because it was not safe to take them. Please always make sure the horse you are using for your case study is able to safely cope with someone taking photos at close range. It also only has before and after photos of one side. Please be sure to take photos of both sides of the horse/donkey/pony you are using for your case studies. Do not E-mail your case studies. Please print and post each case study. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a mailing address.
Each case study needs to include before and after trim photos and an initial written assessment. This should include the name, age, sex of the horse, its known history, any lameness issues - past and present – a short overview of its lifestyle, riding, feed and past hoof care program. Please use the First Trim Assessment Form with your case studies. It is available to download and print at https://www.hoofnz.org.nz/html/resources.html
Case studies can be of your own horses before and after a trim.
The photos should include front on, side on, and sole views of all 4 hooves.
Side and front views of the forelimbs.
Side and rear views of the hind limbs.
A full body photo of each side of the horse
