Re: Periople


Lavinia Fiscaletti
 

The periople is a small band of soft tissue found over the proximal surface of the wall of the hoof. The periople represents the junction between the wall and the skin of the limb. It acts as a covering for the newly formed wall at the top of the hoof capsule. It is similar to human cuticles.
