"It is an orthotic device it treats hoof problems such as laminitis, founder, cracks, thin walls, shelly hooves, navicular and flat feet." UGH is my impression.. JMO but so does a correct barefoot trim. Better for the hoof too. ;) I would hate to see this used on a horse who's owner/caretaker didn't keep up with it religiously at the least..

Barefoot

Ya, I agree. If my horse had sore feet, the last thing I would want to do would be to stick nails in it. No plate is going to fix internal problems. That's like putting a bandaid on a broken bone or internal bleeding.
