The club foot foal
Hello, I been fixing the club foot foal with about 85% success ratio. I use a glue on shoe if the foal is young enough to fit the cup shoe on. Below are pictures of the shoe.
The hoof gets cleaned and trimmed right then it is glued on.
As for the bigger foal that a cup shoe will not fit on.
I do make toe extensions shoe along with heel pads.
The main thing with the young club footed foal get the shoe on early
So the tendons start to stretch early in the foals life.
