    The coffin bone is only one piece of the puzzle.

    Think about the rest of the leg ... the part that is attached to the hoof .... one doesn't want to break angles by much if you can help it.

    Within reason (we can at least hope) the angle of the hoof should match up with the angle of the pastern (from the side).

    Tall heels with a very sloped pastern or short heels with a very straight...

    Thanks. That is what I thought. The only experience I have had with those was that a local vet was pushing them on every horse in town.

    I thought rules were meant to be broken.

    Question About Barn Fan ....

    Congratulations! I guess this is why you were asking about Cobs!

    Until your horse is truly between your hands and legs, you do not realize that you really have no actual control of the horse. He is just being nice.
