Club feet aren’t all that uncommon in horses. Most horses, over time through dominant use of a limb, lameness issues, injury, grazing stance, etc, will actually develop high/low hooves in front. Often the high foot is referred to as “clubby.” What can we do to help this? Can we “fix” club feet? Do we need to worry about their soundness and comfort?
In the latest episode of The Humble Hoof podcast, Christina Cline, co-author of The Essential Hoof Book, talked to me about club feet and ways hoofcare providers AND owners can help keep these feet comfortable.
