FormaHoof Google Reviews

Our FormaHoof Foal Toe Extensions are predominantly used in the treatment of club feet in foals and young horses and can be easily applied and trimmed to the length required for each individual animal under treatment.

The extension in the toe acts as a lever during breakover and forces an extension of the coffin joint up to the point where the heels touch the ground. This increases the tension on the deep flexor tendon, which in turn should lead to the stretching of the corresponding muscle. The typical hoof conformation seen in these foals is caused by the downward rotation of the tip of the coffin bone by the Deep Digital Flexor Tendon.

The severity of the rotation is classified as Stage I or Stage II. A Stage I deformity is present when the front of the hoof is less than vertical or vertical. With Stage II contracture, the dorsal hoof wall passes beyond the vertical, tipping slightly forward.

The FormaHoof Foal Toe Extensions prevent this and aid with correct realignment of the hoof pastern axis.

Benefits of FormaHoof Foal Toe Extensions:
• Quick application process.
• No discomfort to the foal.
• Can be easily removed, without damaging the hoof capsule.
• Safer for the foal in a herd situation.

If you need any help or information please get in touch with FormaHoof Customer Care.

Measure your horse’s hoof length and width, if they are within the same range of measurements shown in the chart; choose the Regular Fit.

If the foot is longer than it is wide, a Slimline Fit is the better choice for your horse.
