Re: Attn Lavinia - Hoof markups request please

Lavinia Fiscaletti

Hi Joy,

Hard to say as it really depends on how the "bad" trim is done. If it doesn't back up the toes and lowers the heels, it would be worse. If it backs the toes somewhat, it's a step in the right direction.

Agree with Shrery on the "hooey". The fused pastern joints just need to be maintained at whatever angle they fused at - you can't make any changes to the palmer angle. That doesn't mean you ignore all the other mechanics for that leg, however, or you will be compounding the problems over time.

Hope the trimmer is open to learning how to effectively deal with these types of issues, as they are extremely common in varying degrees.
