Are you for real? How many club feet have you re-habed this way? Do you know what causes club feet, "all" the causes? How about the possibility of damage to the coffin bone due to a lack of sole depth ,a direct result of mechanical rotation in the hoof capsule? OMG
1. Yes I am for Real!
2. I never said to rehab club footed horses, my gelding Rusty was on his way to a slaughter house. He was a standardbreed who had a condition that caused him to grow to fast for his tendons (not sure whats it was called) It did not affect his soundness (he was never ouchy), but it did cause him to kick out or walk funny due to discomfort or tightness in the tendons. Thus not making him useable to harness racing (ie could not keep a pace) There are MANY MANY DIFFERENT CAUSES OF CLUB FOOT AND DEGREES OF DAMAGE. I never said his was extreme case or what caused it so how can you "KNOW IT ALL". DID YOU KNOW a horses habits can cause such a condition! WOW good to know eh! And helping balance and counter his habits of standing, walking, pawing, stretching, ect... will improve the condition. Get over your self, and jump on someone else's back! I stated at the end that I was no professional, and that this was just my opinion and based on my knowledge this is what I might do. If you don't like what I say, here is a IDEA "don't read it" and here is a better IDEA accept that sometimes others have different ideas or ways of doing things. If your going to be a internet TROLL then you should get a life and maybe read a book cause you need to expand your mind.
