Broken pastern – hoof axis with under-run heels, crushed tubules and a cracked toe. The shoe is set wide to the inside in an effort to bring the hoof fuller to the inside. The clips are an effort to keep the toe crack from worsening. The poor quality of hoof indicates this horse also has chronic protein deficiency which is an underlying issue with all that is seen here.
