Farriers/straight pastern in forelegs - best shoe
hello sir. my dad bought a racehorse. he is a 4 year old thoroughbred gelding and has straight pasterns in the forelegs. may i know what shoe best suits to him since it is not an ideal conformation?
NO shoe will help !! Bottom line.
A more upright pastern or conformation is "predisposed" to more concussion and wear
and tear to the joints and sometimes the soft tissue areas. Ligaments, tendons and cartilage.
