Broken pastern – hoof axis with under-run heels. Note the amount of distance from where the last part of the hoof touches the ground and the vertical line dropped from the back of the heel bulb. An image from the sole view will show how far this hoof is under-run giving no support to the caudal part of the hoof. This confirmation is classic for the development of caudal heel pain / navicular disease which this horse has been diagnosed with.
