I'm wondering why ever would you want to further 'rotate' the hoof by adding higher heels to the equation. Shortening toes(from in front, not ground surface(at least without more info) is vital, as is somehow allowing those heels to relax back more vertically. Saying somehow because I don't know how you'd do it if he's shod, never seen underrun heels corrected with shoes.
So I know I will get criticism for this BUT my mare went on and off lame (not fully lame but just off) for a few weeks 36 hours after starting her on flax oil.
No criticism here. Sure there's no proof, little anecdotal evidence to my knowledge(only heard you say it) & may have been purely coincidence, but certainly worth considering(Spirit too). May be a rare reaction or something.
