Re: side bone/ lavinia

Hi Daisy,

Generally, side bone doesn't make a horse unsound but will make movement less fluid if it is severe.

Shoes aren't going to help - side bone is calcification of the lateral cartilage. Getting the trim as balanced as possible is the first step toward making the best of it.

Would need to see the rads and a set of hoof pix to be able to make any more comments.
