Transition from Weak to Strong Hoof

Below is a nice example of a hoof that was “barefoot” but has lots of distortion and flare present. Consequently, it was a weak hoof with poor integrity.

The same hoof some five years later. There is next to no flare present and the horn tubule distortion has improved significantly. This is a hoof with a tight white line and great integrity. This is the hoof you want on a performance horse.

This hoof changed from a weak and flared hoof to one with great whiteline integrity.
