Medial Extensions used for:

EXT2: Fits foals 6 to 12 weeks, Max foot width 3.5"
Reasons for Use:
- Easy to apply (adjustable)
- Dramatic results when used early
- Enhances dynamic stability
- Relieves stress on young bones
- Minimizes hoof and joint distortion
Caution: remove shoes as recommended to avoid unwarranted pinching effect.
We do not recommend reusing the extensions. Inside the cuff there is a felt liner that acts as a release membrane so that when you remove the cuff it does not pull at the hoof wall
