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 Narrow Full Rocker shoe is a narrow version of the original Full Rocker shoe drop forged in aluminum. The new shape saves you precious time and effort and is quite easy to open up and fit a wider toe. This versatile shoe can also double as a hind pattern and is available with or without a steel insert in the toe for added strength and extended wear. It is currently available in 4 sizes (DFR2CN, DFR3CN, DFR4CN, DFR5CN).
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.
