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.

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.

A DVM/Farrier/Owner Team provids an equine case in need of podiatry-related ideas. The examinations, radiography and dinner are gratis; the owner makes their own financial arrangement with their farrier. The meeting is from 6 PM to 9PM. While everyone is settling in & getting some food and drink there is a general topic of discussion for farriers and veterinarians’ joint interest. For example, on 10/19 the presentation and discussion was on considerations for shoeing for landing versus loading., Then, the horse’s owner, veterinarian and farrier provide a medical history. The group will observe the horse in motion in the aisle, arena and/or driveway. Next the group does a podiatry examination followed by Dr. Radkin doing podiatry radiographs for the group to discuss. Then a trimming and possible shoeing plan is discussed. The consensus plan approved by the owner and the owner’s farrier is then accomplished by the owner’s farrier. Follow-up radiographs will be discussed. There will be one case each evening. The end time is no later than 9PM. The goal is to see how farriers and equine practitioners work together on a particular case that can then translate to other cases.
