    hoof bruise, just below the coronary band...

    It is actually about 1-1 1/2 inches below the coronary on the back hooves ....new farrier says that some type of trauma must have occurred....any idea what??? Diagnosed positive for Lyme about 6 weeks ago......personally I have not noticed it...was shocked when he e-mailed me pictures....also vet wanted square shape shoe on the back, but the toe was left round...front feet have natural balance/square toe
    I'll try to put the pictures up..

    here they are....hope they work


    hind feet were done today 03/29/07. Lots of bruising is visible from the coronary band down about an inch or inch and a half. I don't have history on this guy, but I'm betting something changed or happened in his "life" around two months ago.
    Hope this was some help. B.R.P.

    PS See attached pics/ have more if needed

    The bruising may very well be from unbalanced feet. See how the hairline curves up? Shouldn't do that - should be pretty much on a straight diagonal from toe to heel.

    well, I'm not 100% sure but this is what he said:He has qite a bit of pastern deviation and he is way out of M/L balance.This horse looks like he might have had some issues with laminitis in the past, and that is also something to take into consideration....

    I don't know what M/L means....So what would cause a bruise like this??

    Ok, this is the answer I got about why the toe was left round although he has a square shaped shoe on the back...does it sound right?

    "Squaring" the the toe of the shoe moves the breakover back. This allows more efficient articulation thus easing the pressures and exertion needed for the leg to function as a whole. (I'm guessing in your case probably hock or stifle issues) Dubbing the toe off is not needed, as you can see I rounded the foot from the bottom up. The rest is up to him.
    (Plus, if we dubbed off the toe we'd be back into lamina and it would look terrible)
