Please remember!

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.

landing patterns

I made this slide to show how Molly is walking. As a consequence of the leg conformation, she has the tendency to impact the ground with her lateral side first. It is particularly obvious on her FR, the one foot that has the offset P1 (long pastern bone), where Molly most of the time hits the ground with her lateral toe first. The FL lands flatter, but also lateral side first.
