    Dorsal wall, so the 8 - 9 degrees was really serious

    No, the LF isn't clubby but I was afraid he was going that direction.

    If I've ever mentioned a club hoof, that belongs to a different TWH, who inherited it thru his Generator breeding. It's less-than-Grade 1.

    Yes, if there's 8-9 degrees difference in the plane of the dorsal wall to that of P3, it's a fair amount... tho I wonder, when measuring 'rotation' from the dorsal wall, how do they go about deciding the degree on curled hooves?? Do you know what sort of angle the distal surface of P3 was/is?

    I'll muddy the waters a bit by giving you a different perspective & saying this degree of distal wall 'separation' can happen without P3 being 'rotated'. Eg the dorsal wall can head 'off & out there' due to laminitis, and there is indeed generally some mechanical effects contributing too, but if the sole/frog is kept level and well supported, P3 can be perfectly in alignment & it's just the hoof capsule that's 'rotated' away.
