Horsehoofcare.. I will get some better shots on concrete tomorrow. As far as the clubbed foot.. Every time my farrier comes she cuts the heel down and the angle begins to look much more correct and aligned with her pastern. By about the 4th week the heel sprouts back up and the angle gets all wonky again. As I mentioned in my last post I'm not as concerned with changing the club foot as she has always been sound in the 2 years I have had her *knocks wood*. I'm simply looking to correct the underrun heel and try to get her better balanced Posted via Mobile Device
