    Thanks for posting this one. I’m trying to learn about good care for my OTTB’s feet and it looks like I’m going to need to order this book. I had already added it to my Amazon wish list – lol!

  2. I would need to see the rest of article to truly pass judgment, but it seems you have ignored the elephant in the room. The true purpose of the bar which is to anchor the heels from moving too far caudal and add support to the lateral cartilage. Knowing this we can identify distortion (curve) caused when the heels are pulled forward by the toe. The need to understand why, when and how to “slip the bar” back to straight is what many hoof care providers are missing. Straightening the bar has to do with hoof mapping but much more important is the correcting of hoof-fall…the farrier cannot do it alone…it requires a change in thinking…the need for hoof physical therapist. bmc06239@yahoo.com
