Horse J – The LF hoof of this horse has an asymmetric hoof and an offset pastern entering the hoof. This view shows the vertical medial wall, the higher medial heel and the horizontal splay of the lateral heel and hoof wall. This geometry is a result of the medial side landing first causing an upright wall and elevated heel and the lateral side landing last with the force vectors being more horizontal and moving the wall outward.
