high/low heel

Regarding the Deb Bennet's observation of weight bearing factors on the
high/low heeled horse, my mare has grazed from birth with her right front leg
extended. She is lower heeled on this leg than the other which bears weight
on the toe rather than the whole foot in equal proportions. I have always
assumed this to be the reason for the small discrepancy in her heel growth.
