Would you mind to give some very brief answers to the questions below to be
shared with others on Farriers Online? I will take special care that you being
the author is clearly stated and copyright indicated. 1.How do you hold the leg and look at a front and a hind foot to asess
medio-lateral balance? 2. Is your guideline for level the skeleton (e.g. X-rays) or the outside of the
hoof capsule? 3.What is the most important thing to remember about medio-lateral balance?
Hold the leg loosely and let it
relax with your weak hand and look at the foot with your dominant eye and check
for level, medio-lateral balance.
Everything comes from the coffin
bone; as far as level the hoof capsule: well move and shape to the weight of the
horse and how he is landing flat or not or just ware.
you can't fix every horse so try to make him sound the best you can and if it
ain't broken don't fix it!
