I am curious what people think of the idea of the hoof wall being 'jammed' up relative to where it should be and the idea that it will 'let down' with proper trimming and sole support. I was particularly thinking of comments about relieving that 'credit card' space at the quarters and having to repeat that as the wall relaxed and grew or just 'came down' of it's own accord after, necessitating a repeat of the trimming in that area sooner than the rest of the hoof and visually resulting in a straighter/more level coronary band in that quadrant. I also seem to recall the idea coming up in another horse with regard to ripples in the toe? Sorry I can't attribute these to the folks who posted them, but I can't really remember which threads they were.
I understand the idea of a sunken coffin bone relative to the coronary band or, another way to put it, the coronary band being jammed up higher on the leg when the sole loses concavity and support to hold the bony column high in the hoof capsule. Do you think this can happen in just parts of the foot like just the quarters, or toe, or heels? Or is it imaginary?
