Bowed and Offset Knees
Bowed HocksOptimal correction requires early application. (Birth to 2 months due to early physis closure.)

Valgus Hocks(Early correction offers better response.)
Reasons for Use:
Easy to apply (adjustable)
Dramatic results when used early
Enhances dynamic stability
Relieves stress on young bones
Minimizes hoof and joint distortion
Note: This shoe has little or no effect on toe out rotational deformities. This deformity often appears to be a valgus fetlock which is extremely rare in developing young horses.
Caution: remove shoes as recommended to avoid unwarranted pinching effect.
We do not recommend reusing the extensions. Inside the cuff there is a felt liner that acts as a release membrane so that when you remove the cuff it does not pull at the hoof wall.
