glad others seen thru your explanashun
I have had horses with coffin bone disorders caused by breeding (my QH mare straight pasterns) or trainers trying to show 2 year olds resulting in a stress breakdown.
A "kick" to the colonet band would NOT result in a "gait correction" for more than about 2 feet.
I understand what you are saying about IDENTICAL soring in the front.. and I see how that would be attainable with a caustic paste AND a rubbin chain..but I sure do not see it with a kick to the band
Now..both Dr. GiGi and Dr. Cindy (Scottsdale) disagree with you..Pressure shoeing yes but that is because it can be done to both fronts with a consistency..but not a kick.
Both said a foundered horse would NOT be able to perform at a BL movement. They would collapse..period..
