Club Feet

12_9.1_aug_2004_007

With the Club Foot, one foot is steeper than the other (left foot in the picture).  It wants to, needs to, etc. but it is not a hoof problem. The horse is adapting to something else. Go on a detective mission. There is/was an injury, nerve damage, or opposite hind stifle problem as examples. Massage folks can really help the club foot horse. Please see Pete Ramey's article on the Club Foot.
