Advance Cushion Support (ACS) can be used to make a negative mold of your
horse's foot. In less than 15 minutes, a positive 3-D model can then be created by pouring Smooth-Cast 300 into the negative ACS mold. While the foot model is warm, a therapeutic trim can be applied and a custom shoe can be shaped to the foot.
Dr. Redden developed this idea and technique for creating a diagnostic cast as a communication tool. His detailed shoeing and trimming protocol can be placed into the hands of farriers and veterinarians throughout the world.
The 3-D model simplifies the communication among professionals and bridges the language barrier. Dr. Redden often makes a foot model once optimum mass and balance have been reestablished in competitive horses. This serves as a baseline for future farrier reference.
