Lateral Extensions used for:
Toe in Ankles (Varus) fetlocks
Bowed and Offset Knees
Optimal correction requires early application. (Birth to 2 months due to early physis closure.)
Reasons for Use:
Easy to apply (adjustable)
Dramatic results when used early
Enhances dynamic stability
Relieves stress on young bones
Minimizes hoof and joint distortion
Note: This shoe has little or no effect on toe out rotational deformities. This deformity often appears to be a valgus fetlock which is extremely rare in developing young horses.
Caution: remove shoes as recommended to avoid unwarranted pinching effect. We do not recommend reusing the extensions. Inside the cuff there is a felt liner that acts as a release membrane so that when you remove the cuff it does not pull at the hoof wall.
