[RC] Club feet-vet/farrier advice requested? - Ridecamp Guest

Please Reply to: Sheila Larsen Sheila_Larsen@xxxxxxx or ridecamp@xxxxxxxxxxxxx

How about a vet or farrier weighing in on this?  It was my 
understanding that a true club foot was actually from a problem
with the coffin bone. I believe, but don't know for certain, 
that improper trimming or high-low syndrome can change the 
angle of the coffin bone so it is no longer parallel to the
bottom of the foot.  Obviously, not good.  I had x-rays taken 
to confirm what was going on.  I know there are horses out 
there that are high-low/club footed that are competing. Maybe 
my question is more academic than practical?  I tried looking
it up quickly on the internet but didn't have time to fully
research it.
