Podometry in Equine (Equus caballus)

PK Kawareti, NC Nandeshwar, SB Banubakode and S Ganguly

The present study was conducted on eight thoroughbreds of horse hoof. In the present study, the measurements of hoof were taken: solar length, solar width and toe length. From this measurement were recorded in centimeter for both fore limb and hind limb hooves. The mean and standard error (SE) values were calculated in addition to hoof index and toe index values obtained. For hoof of fore limb, right and left hoof solar length was 12.31±0.38, 11.92±0.26 cm respectively, solar width was 11.81±0.33, 11.68±0.37 cm respectively, the toe length was 8.46±0.22 and 8.28± 0.14 cm respectively, while in case of right and left hooves of hind limb hoof solar length was 11.81±0.36, 11.57±0.47 cm respectively, solar width was 10.77±0.36 cm, 10.6±0.33 cm respectively and the toe length 8.42±0.26 and 8.52±0.18 cm respectively. The study indicated that hoof index can serve as an anatomical basis for identification of left and right hooves of forelimb. In case of toe index did not show significant difference in values.
