NANRIC Foal Extension™ (Pair)
  • Note:  We are in the process of switching from the black material to the white.  It is the same shoe just a different color.



    Many years ago, Dr Redden's Dalric Extension concept offered the world a fresh, new look at treating angular deformities in foals. Now he is introducing the Nanric Foal Extension, a second generation extension made of ABS plastic that is lightweight, easy to use, does not require sedation and is very effective when used on young foals.


    • Varus Fetlock (toed-in).
      Apply to the lateral side of the hoof. Early detection is the key, as optimum response period is 5-30 days of age.
    • Varus Hock (windswept)
    • Valgus Knee (knock-kneed, toed out)
      The optimum window of response is 30-60 days.


    How To Apply The NANRIC Foal Extension:


    • Valgus Hock (windswept)
    • Clean the foot with a sanding block
    • Fit the cuff to foot using the center toe marker as a guide. Note the cuff length at the coronary band and trim when necessary.
    • Apply composite. We recommend Vettec's Super Fast for 1 week old foals and Equilox works well for older foals (though sedation may be required when using Equilox as it takes longer to cure).
    • Warm the extension in cold weather to speed set time.

    Recommended Shoeing Schedule

    How to Remove the Nanric Foal Extension:
