Designed by Dr. Scott Morrison of the Rood & Riddle Equine Podiatry Clinic in Lexington, KY, this shoe configuration is intended for use in foals & young horses with club feet. It helps reduce the need for surgery and helps prevent coffin bone remodeling. The Morrison Club also reduces the pull of the deep digital flexor and helps increase sole depth. Useful in treating foals with upright pasterns, tendon contracture, fractures & other developmental issues.
The Sound Horse MC Composite (foals) duplicates the dimensions and shape of the Morrison Club aluminum, “nail-on” shoe in a Series I , cuffed “glue-on” configuration. It is built of urethane for shock -reduction and also with a metal insert for shaping.
The MC Foal shoe uses a metal insert to provide rigidity for support and shaping stability as well as acting as a wear plate for the rolled toe.
A metal insert allows the farrier to drill & tap the MC Composite Shoe for hospital plates & attachments.
Available in size 00, 0, 1, 2, 3 race plate size — these are very small shoes for foals, weanlings & young horses.
