Blacksmith CALKB Heartbar Open Toe Unclipped
This shoe with its V-insert in contact with the frog contrasts the coffin bone rotation in case of laminitis. It also supports the bone column if a substantial part of the dorsal wall has to be removed (white line disease). The complete bar and Vinsert in contact with the frog support the weight, which means that the other structures are subject to less stress in case of caudal cracks and weak heels. The toe is open and boxed in order to release break-over thus reducing
tension on the deep flexor tendon and inferior check ligament at the end of the propulsion phase. The open toe also reduces laminar stresses and stressed white line. The holes are punched further back to make sure that the nails can be driven into healthy areas and painlessly in laminitis horses. The holes are punched in such a way that the nails can be driven into the wall with the right inclination.
