Transition - changes in hoof shape

When a hoof 'transitions' it sometimes changes shape in one or more dimensions. The above hoof has changed from just about every view.

In this solar view you can see how the;

  • length from frog apex to toe tip has shortened,
  • collateral grooves are wider
  • depth of sole around the frog apex is deeper,
  • sole has gone from almost bulging to having a modest amount of concavity
