When we talk about the digital cushion and using digital support, what do we mean? The digital cushion (plantar, hind; palmar, front) is the large mass of fatty tissue occupying the back and bottom part of the foot. It is the largest structure in the equine foot.

Digital support is a generic term for the use of the frog and digital cushion to bear weight. This usually unloads the hoof wall, lamellae and maybe distal phalanx. Originally achieved with heartbars, and now using any of the many digital support pads and fillers. 

In short, the digital cushion is an anatomical structure, and digital support a technique in hoof-care. We will be exploring all this further at my next webinar.

Davie County Large Animal Hospital hosts a farrier meeting on the second Tuesday of every month at their clinic for farriers, veterinarians, and horse owners. We bring in a case study horse experiencing a lameness issue to evaluate and discuss the best approach to diagnose, treat and maintain it. The veterinarian completes a full lameness exam on the horse and utilizes appropriate diagnostics such as radiographs, nerve blocks, and flexions. Upon lameness diagnosis, all farriers and veterinarians in attendance collaborate in a round table discussion about the best method to shoe the horse. The existing farrier on the case is heavily encouraged to attend and shoe the horse with inputs from other farriers present at the meeting.

Our goal is to collaborate with the veterinarians and educate all in attendance. We want to ensure that the process we execute at our meetings is repeatable by the farrier at the farm going forward.

  • Paige Poss
We will have two horses that have been donated for dissection. A vet will be onsite to euthanize them prior to the clinic, and then Paige will guide the dissections with the participants. The day will be full of opportunity to dig deeper in an understanding than never before. We will have an anatomy work sheet participants can fill out to use in assisting their learning.

There is a possibility of radiographs to assist with the day.
