    It's a round nail, 6' type. It was out hunting, went very lame, so much mud the nail was missed, onto the lorry, 2 miles to the vet where the foot was cleaned out and the nail was very visible. Always handy to be able to X-ray with. The nail in situ.. So nail was in there a bit over an hour.

    IMO if you just hol the leg for a while . maybe 30 seconds , the horse settlesdown and no problem , BUT in RBs it depends

    This one isn't too pretty, but the horse sure liked it. You can't see it in the pics, but the breakover is ground back to about 1 1/4 inch behind the toe, and the toe isn't touching the shoe. I had filled it with an IM dam to keep the glue from getting in there. Three firsts:First shoes on the horse, first founder on the horse, first time using these for me.
