Sound Horse Foal Extension
Designed with a rigid urethane sole and progressive rolled toe to help treat the flexor tendon flaccidity. This limb deformity is relatively common in newborn foals with weak flexor tendons and usually involves the hind limbs, although all four legs can be involved.
The Foal Heel Extension encourages a natural stance and growth pattern while muscle and tendon tone improve.
