My mare wears down her right front hoof down different than her other feet, causing a minor club foot. I was thinking of ways to prevent this wearing, one obviously putting on shoes, another possibly wearing hoof boots? It would be a much cheaper solution than shoeing her (she's barefoot now) and it would be much less hassle. Are hoof boots supposed to be kept on all of the time, minus the time to get her hooves trimmed and checking their feet? Do you guys know of any other solutions to a club foot? Any help would be much appreciated! I also attached pics of her club foot.
ETA: We've had the chiropractor out so it's not an alignment issue and I don't think it's a conformation flaw either.
Also here's the boots I was looking at: http://www.horse.com/leg-protection-...oof-boots/590/
