A commonly encountered anomaly when the front feet of the horse are compared is the occurrence of two differently shaped and sized front feet, which can be defined as so-called “uneven” feet1. Frequently the smaller hoof will be quite differently shaped from its partner, with more growth height occurring at the heels and converging compression marks occurring midway on the anterior hoof wall (Figure 1).
Asymmetry of the forelimbs of the horse is acknowledged as a common condition, which can result in asymmetric movement, abnormities of gait and even lameness. Limb length disparity (LLD) has been previously classified into two categories: structural and functional.
