Farriers/confirming tender soles
hello sir, can i confirm that a horse has tender sole by lifting the hoof and pressing the sole?
YES...Rohit, IF you can press the soles with your thumbs and there is sensitivity,
definitely you have a problem !!
Also...hoof testers or Can be done with a general plumbing tool "channel locks" a wide
jaw pliers that can safely squeeze sole and wall gently. Apply light pressure and he/she may "flinch". Too much pressure, ANY horse will react or pull when you do it.
Best To You!!
