  • 2. Abnormal foot conformation – can be as detrimental as arthritis, laminitis and tendon/ligament injuries
    • … . if not timely diagnosed and treated, it can get worse to the point of total disuse and life of chronic pain for the horse.
    • Abnormal foot conformation doesn’t need other pathologic problems to be crippling.
    • It can be crippling on its own, if not cared for!!!
    • Can be painful in its own right
  • 3. Shackleford Banker Pony mare Leila 21 year old mare about 12 hands high this was her RF foot that she was bearing weight on for 4 years.
  • 4. General comments from one small horse that never had farrier work in her life of 21 years
    • She has a positive sole plane angle (SPA) in all 3 feet & 0 degree in RF. Many domestic horses do not due to long toe/low heel conformation.
    • The 0 degree sole plane angle is especially interesting on her RF which has been overbearing weight from LF shoulder injury. Most domestic situations probably would be negative?
    • Her general foot conformation is reasonably upright in spite of the fact she has been in a very wet environment all her life.
  • 5. Right front foot The weight bearing foot for 4 years
  • 6. Right front foot The weight bearing foot for 4 years
  • 7. Right front foot The weight bearing foot for 4 years c
  • 8. LF reduced weight bearing limb for 4 years
  • 9. LF reduced weight bearing limb for 4 years Assume flare to lateral side?
  • 10. LF reduced weight bearing limb for 4 years
  • 11. RH
  • 12. RH
  • 13. RH
  • 14. LH
  • 15. LH
  • 16. LH
  • 17. Shackleford Banker Pony mare Leila 21 year old mare about 12 hands high this was her RF foot that she was bearing weight on for 4 years. So she has a positive sole plane angle, normal H/L zone, excellent sole depth and good breakover and DIP joint balance Never touched by farrier
  • 18. Leila’s hind foot Excellent horn quality Never touched by farrier
  • 19. What is normal? So bottom line for easiest to remember; FIVES Picture adapted from Redden, R. Understanding Laminitis. The Blood Horse,Inc, Lexington, Ky. 1998. P.44 and Page,BT,Bowker,RM;Ovnicek,RJF &Hagen,TL: How to Mark the Foot for Radiography. 45 AAEP pp148-150.
  • 20. These are the 5 measurements we have felt to be the most helpful from lateral radiographs?
    • Proximal and distal dorsal wall thickness (H/L zone 1 and H/L zone 2)
    • Sole depth at the tip of P-3
    • Sole plane angle of P-3 (palmar/plantar)
    • P-3/P-2 joint support (position of shoe/trim around P-3/P-2 joint)
    • Break-over distance (Break-over of shoe/trim to tip of P-3)
  • 21. Take the test www.healthyhorsehoof.com The goal of this web site is to increase owner awareness and interaction between them and their veterinarian and farrier
  • 22. Thanks to all the owners, veterinary students, Merck-Merial summer program, veterinarians and farriers who have helped me help horses and think some of these ideas; and Sue Stuska for this case though …. it is still a work in progress, but also still fun!!!!
