How can casting address both the cause and result of hoof wall problems?
Casting creates a banding effect as well as adding vertical integrity to the whole hoof capsule. Equicast’s substrate design and wrapping process adds vertical integrity and lateral stability to the whole hoof capsule, which assists in a sustainable and dynamic support structure.
The added lateral stability and vertical integrity helps reduce excessive stress on the laminae at the most distal aspect of the hoof capsule. This dynamic stabilization wrapping process increases vertical integrity and lateral stability to the whole hoof (walls, sole, and frog) for better sole depth, better integrity, and concavity, which will help in establishing better palmar angles for proper biomechanics.
