The Aluminum Four Point Drop Forge Rail Shoe is a slightly modified version of our milled Rail Shoe. It is available in sizes 2, 3, 4 and 5. This shoe has a sandblasted finish to visually distinguish it from our milled aluminum shoe.
The Rail is a very versatile shoe designed to significantly reduce deep flexor pull, by reducing breakover and elevating the heels. The degree of mechanics indicated by the shoe is dependent on several factors, palmar angle, sole depth, horn-lamellar zone integrity, capsule shape and strength, trim, fit and application. Therefore to best utilize the desired level of mechanics much consideration must precede the planning stage. Good positioned, soft tissue detail radiographs are extremely helpful for pathological farriers and attending veterinarians as they discuss and design adequate mechanics that significantly reduce the forces at play. This shoe has evolved from literally hundreds of forged rails applied to Dr. Redden's international caseload.
