    Understanding The Outlaw Shoe (Glue On) Product

    In acute laminitis and founder horses there is significant inflammation of the laminitic interface (stratum medium) around the whole hoof capsule, so why is there rotation at the toe instead of all being sinkers. The laminitic interface (stratum medium) is just as inflamed at the heels as at the toe. Also a horse will stand in the classic founder stance putting more weight on the heel so one could make the assumption there is more pain at the toe.

    There is more pain at the toe because the laminitic interface (stratum medium) is between two static structures the foot the hoof wall (stratum externum) and the coffin bone face (3rd Phalanx). With inflammation of the laminae (stratum internum) there is no place for the pressure to go except compress the structures already there like the stratum medium involving circulation, blood vessels and other soft tissues of the coronary band also include the coronary cushion when you have rotation. You can see this by the ring associated with hoof growth in laminitic and founder horse. After rotation of the coffin bone (3rd Phalanx) you get compression of the dorsal venous plexus which is the blood supply to the sole of the hoof. With rotation of the P3 into the sole (inter tubular horn) abscesses can develop that needs to be drained. Also with rotation of the P3 the coronary band, circumflex artery and terminal arch are affected through compression and restriction or complete stoppage of blood flow. The Outlaw shoe reduces pressure on the front third of the hoof to increase blood flow and feed the laminitic interface (stratum medium) reducing pain.

    This effects only the coffin bone behind the bone you have lateral cartilage and on the sides you have ligaments of the lateral cartilage and collateral ligament of the coffin bone. All these structures can absorb the inflammation of the laminae to allow some blood flow keeping the inflamed laminae from shearing. This is why the heel has less pain even though there is sill pain associated in the heels. Where the toe is deprived of blood with the killing off of the laminae (stratum internum) and the pressure of the inflammation of the laminitic interface the only outcome is rotations to release the pressure. If acute laminitis is stopped or halted through Veterinary care and proper pain management, for example by using The Outlaw shoe, the case should never reach this point.

    The Outlaw shoe takes the standard heart bar shoe to the next level of support and pain management of the hoof. The Outlaw shoe uses all available techniques to combat the effects of acute laminitis and founder. It spreads the pressure evenly across the entire two third dorsal section of the foot when standing reducing any pressure point abscesses. The Outlaw shoe uses a 5 degree heel wedge to temporary relieve the pulling on the superficial flexor tendon (SFT) and the deep digital flexor tendon (DDFT) in the acute stage. Also the Outlaw shoe provides heart bar support for the frog and plantar cushion.

    The open toe design allows increase blood flow and relieves pressure on the laminitic interface (stratum medium), stopping or slowing the possibility of rotation. The ability to be taped or glued reduces the concussion force exerted on to the hoof. The Outlaw shoe has an open sole allowing for drainage and treatment of solar abscesses with out removal of the shoe.

    Some other benefits of The Outlaw shoe (glue on), is that it is soft but supportive, and can handle the weight of the horse. The Outlaw shoe (glue on) can also be x-rayed while on the foot, so removal is not necessary. The addition of a toe strap allows one shoe to fit multiple sizes of hoof. When ordering The Outlaw shoe we have three sizes small (000-00), medium (0-1), and large (2-3). In the kit you have two shoes, glue, accelerator, sanding block and cotton for clean up.

    This kit includes everything you need to help your acute laminitic horse.

    Order today and help that laminitic horse.
