The information presented on this blog represents "learning in progress" on my part, a horse owner, who was not satisfied with professional farriers and took matters in my own hands. As far as I am aware at the time of the post, the information presented is correct, but may change with me understanding more about hooves, in which case I will edit or remove the post. In order to follow my learning and understand everything about Molly's hoof, you need to start reading at the bottom.

new tools

I bought two tools, that are supposed to help me with balancing my horses feet.

Here are some pictures.

I must say that this Equine balancer tool is not fool proof either, but it does help visualizing where the hoof is high relative to the axis of the leg than just sighting down the leg, holding it by the cannon bone. So I don't regret buying that tool.

The other one is basically a horseshoe equipped with a dorsal hoof angle measurement feature. This one is also quite helpful as it allows to assess the surface plane of the hoof.
