ring hoof

ring hoof

A hoof that has a pattern of rings on its hoof wall. Their formation is due to changes in speed and sometimes direction of horn growth. The rings may be parallel to the coronary band, in which case they are generally due to changes in diet. Rings that diverge towards the quarters and heels are generally due to the changes in horn growth rate seen in horses with chronic laminitis.
