The advantages of this shoe include:
- Can be shaped cold.
- Less expensive alternative to the Nanric 6061-T6 aluminum shoes.
- T6 temper and hardness reduces wear and increases longevity.
- Comes pre-punched but not drilled allowing you to choose hole pitch.
- Optimum breakover properties enhance digital alignment and the natural healing environment.
The Drop Forge Full Rocker Shoe is designed to offer high-end mechanical breakover. The breakover, or pivot point, of this shoe is located in the center of the shoe, which allows the horse to self-adjust its palmar angle.
Horses with limited solar perfusion (blood supply) have little to no sole growth because there is a lack of sufficient nutrition to the trim line. By relieving deep digital flexor tension, blood supply to the laminae and sole is increased. This shoe offers continuous self-adjustment that the horse needs, even when standing still.
The Drop Forge Full Rocker shoe is also an aid to enhance rigid sole growth, and it offers farriers and vets a new option for treating a variety of problems that are associated with thin, painful soles. Lateral radiographs are helpful in trim and shoe placement, as well as an aid to evaluate progress.
