[RC] crack at end of shoe - Karen Sullivan


There is a condition I see quite often.....but don't know what to call

Imagine a badly shod hoof.....where the heels are quite underrun......and
then the shoe
ends even a bit shorter.  From the side....the shoe only extends maybe 1/2
to 2/3 length
of the hoof, starting at the toe.  There is no shoe under the heels....or
bulbs.  So a crack
develops at the end of this shoe (seems logical), since the force of the
foot and heels steps
back off the shoe (bruising the bulbs of the heels, and causing this crack,
which is either
a vertical or diagnonal crack).

Can you visualize what I am saying, and what would you call that kind of
