    Note - vet instructions in black marker on the radiograph to "move shoe back 1/2" - but the vet missed the fact that the plastic rim on the shoe was already 1/2" above the tip of P3 and the entire sole was prolapsed below the rim of the shoe. The horse could not bear weight on this foot without severe pain.
    Tom, it looks to me like the rad was taken at the coronet (or something) pointing down, rather than straight on. What do you think?

    Do not buy a Volkswagen. I did and I regret it.

    You don't "fix" club feet or under run heels. You manage them. Both are leverage problems. I don't think I have good pictures of any of the club footed horses I work on . . . heck half the stuff I posted here is from 8 to 10 years ago.

    Those rads sucked goobers. So crooked the foot was running off the frame, horse not blocked square, poorly exposed, and developed in old chemicals. I had to hold them up in front of direct sunlight to get my camera to make in image.
