BLURTON LATERAL EXTENSION HIND CLIPPED SHOES
The shoes have individual Pitch for each nail hole as well as being safed off in the toe and seated out. Side clips are standard and they have the stud holes already punched. Jim has made sure that the farrier can easily fit these and have confidence in their stability. A deeper fullering on the outside branch of the shoe maintains a good strong nailing. They are very useful for horses that Brush its works by widening the horses gait during locomotion. It can also be used as a support shoe and in the treatment of bone spavin. Horses with bone spavin attempt to unload the dorsal (front) aspect of the small tarsal joints by redistributing their weight. A good way of determining the placement of the extension is to watch the animal move and place the extension just behind the first point of contact between the hoof and a level surface. This is known as the point of stab. Such placement will widen the stance and gait and take some strain off the hock.
