I devised a new concept a few years ago that sorts out foals with weak flexors.

This foal with weak flexors (left) was treated with the bungee concept described below. The photo on the right was taken one week after application of the bungee and therapeutic shoe.

Most foals will only be weak in one limb. However, if the case is bilateral, a shoe on each foot is indicated.
