RE: [SPAM] [RC] Separation at the Coronet Band - Karen Standefer

Gravel is not sand or grit.  It's an abcess that exits the coronay band
(travels upward).  Here is a definition from a farrier glossary:

"The infection that gains access to the foot through the white line may
travel up the sensitive lamina underneath the hoof wall forming a "gravel"
that drains at the coronet."

A condition my farrier calls "gravel" is when sand or grit will get
between the wall and white line and work it's way up the hoof. It
normally has an abscess associated but it may never show lame. One day
it will "pop out the top" as a crack. It is common in sandy conditions
but it takes months to work its way up and out. The hoof grows out with
a blemish and usually there is no problems.
