hoof axis

slope of the dorsal hoof wall

The axis that best corresponds to the slope of the dorsal hoof wall. If the dorsal hoof wall is convex or concave, it corresponds to the slope of the upper (proximal) third of the wall. Idealy it is parallel to the pastern axis, resulting in a straight hoof-pastern axis.  The angle between the hoof axis and the ground is known as the hoof angle.
