    Nannoo, are you saying that the coffin bone will form different angles in different horses (other than minor variation)? As the hoof conforms to the shape of the coffin bone, I would be surprised if you were saying other wise. Unless I have completely misunderstood you.

    Or are you saying that the coffin bone should be aligned at different angles for different horses. If this is what you are saying, does this (upright) hoof conformation predispose laminae issues? What about contraction and Navicular?

    Trying to understand...
