What Does It Look Like?
As a horse owner going barefoot you will hear lots of terms. You will also hear about all kinds of conditions your horse might have or could possibly get.
On this page I will post photos of many of those conditions.
In this photo the Keratoma is barely visible, as it's very small. The actual crack that is caused by the lack of attachment of the wall, is black. The keratoma is vertical, skinny, and just to the left of the black gap. It looks like a wavy line.
This foot belongs to a 20+ Quarter Horse mare, on a 6-week trim schedule. The radiograph was taken just prior to her trim due date.
It's quite clear that excess sole under the coffin bone is what pushes it out of place. The image below is the same horse, same foot, with normal coffin bone position. The heels are the same height in both images.
