There is none so foolish as he who thinks he can outwit nature
Thank you so much for the recent posts on healing angle and bull nose hooves. I find the healing angle very helpful in terms of visually assessing a hoof (simply as an amateur trying to learn, no intention of trying to be an armchair expert!). I'm wondering if there is some kind of standard or key to look for in the heel that tells how long the overall hoof should be. I figure the heel (angle? length?) must play into this a fair bit.I realized I was following HAs but didn't understand where it should terminate. How do you know where the heel/toe should be? I'd love a solid reason other than an opinion that it "just looks too long" (even if HA is followed to the ground).
