Re: Hoof pics...please comment?

Hi Karen,

Here is the link to Dancer's hoof pics - they are in the Photos section of ECHistory8:

If you look at that RF, the angle of the hoof wall above the abscess blowout area is coming in steeper than the wall below. This is confirmation that there are changes that need to be made to the trim. If you draw a line to the ground that follows this new angle it shows where the toe should be backed up to. The RF is a bit taller and boxier than the LF, a condition called High/Low syndrome. LF needs the toe backed even further than RF. Looks like the rears are a bit under run with the frogs recessed into the soles - is this correct?

I will put up some mark-ups and a better explanation later today.
