Note: All NANRIC aluminum shoes are creased but not punched as the position and pitch of the nail hole is best left up to the farrier's discretion.
The Full Rocker, or “banana shoe,” is available in sizes 1, 2, 3, and 4. The 4’s are unique in that a they are available in a 4CC or 4SC. Most horse have a club foot which is smaller and a "slam dunk" foot that is larger. The CC denotes C for Club and C for the amount of radius/belly the shoe has. The SC denotes S for "slam dunk" and C for the amount of radius/belly the shoe has. The shoe design is the same but the 4SC is just slightly wider and longer.
The Full Rocker shoe is designed to offer high-end mechanical breakover. The breakover, or pivot point, of this shoe is located in the center of the shoe, which allows the horse to self-adjust its palmar angle.
Horses with limited solar perfusion (blood supply) have little to no sole growth because there is a lack of sufficient nutrition to the trim line. By relieving deep digital flexor tension, blood supply to the laminae and sole is increased. This shoe offers continuous self-adjustment that the horse needs, even when standing still.
The Full Rocker shoe is also an aid to enhance rigid sole growth, and it offers farriers and vets a new option for treating a variety of problems that are associated with thin, painful soles. Lateral radiographs are helpful in trim and shoe placement, as well as an aid to evaluate progress.
This shoe is the Full Rocker Size 3 with a steel insert added to help slow the wearing process and give added protection.
