Re: Uneven hoof development


Lavinia Fiscaletti
 

Hi Maria,

Depends on the individual horse. Some things to consider:
  - lateral wall is flared so sole appears wider to compensate
  - medial heel run further forward, twisting hoof capsule laterally
  - medial-lateral imbalances
  - entire hoof capsule has shifted laterally
  - medial wall more upright, which is common and will make the entire medial side of the foot narrower
  - everything is as it should be and that is correct for that horse/hoof
