hoof ring

grass ring

fever growth

A ring shaped prominence on the surface of the hoof wall. There may be several, giving a ridged appearance (the ridges are more or less parallel to the coronary band). These rings represent changes in rate and quality of horn growth and may be due to seasonal or dietary factors or represent health issues (e.g. laminitis). Seasonal or dietary rings are parallel to the coronary band throughout, health related changes may diverge, usually at the heel.
