Ibex Babi-Cuff's are designed to help correct the following in foals and young horses:
- Flexural deformities
- Contracted or collapsed tendons
- Valgus/varus deviations
- Medial/lateral hoof growth deformities
The shoe is essentially a cuff with 4 extensions molded upon a small steel egg bar which provides stability and support while allowing adjustment. These shoes are universal and can be placed on right or left feet. Simply trim and rasp off the extensions that are not required for the intended correction.
Once the foot is prepped (trimmed, dried, and gently sanded for a lightly textured surface) the shoes can then be adhered. It is recommended to use either a polyurethane, acrylic, or epoxy adhesive. Whichever is the preference of the attending farrier or veterinarian.
