Horse A – has asymmetric hooves with multiple issues although not seen in every image. Here there are toe cracks and flared hoof walls. You can also see the break over point by the ware spots at the toes near the cracks. The RF hoof showing the break over point, cracks occurring at each side of the break over point with the worst on the medial side. Notice the more vertical medial wall while the lateral wall has more of an angle indicating an uneven load being applied to the hoof walls (see vector analysis).
