Figure 1 - A horse suffering from a bout of laminitis is fitted with a glue-on wedge heeled bar shoe.
Figure 2 - After the acrylic is used to apply the glue-on shoe, the foot is wrapped in plastic to facilitate the curing of the acrylic.
Figure 3 - When the shoe is set, the acrylic is filed down to blend into the horseʼs foot.
Figure 4 - This bar shoe is effective for laminitis in the same way that a vetʼs Redden laminitis wedge cuff is used. Raising the heel has proven to be very helpful in alleviating the pain associated with laminitis.
