This is the pad for laminitis, founder, abscessing and transitioning to hard ground. All support, but it does still provide a certain amount of cushion. Primary purpose is to support the bony column.
The yellow provides maximum stimulation of frogs, bars and sole.
It is excellent at expelling abscesses. A hole can be cut into the pad to relieve the abscess area. See picture above for an example.
Yellow can be used as a base pad to help lengthen the useful life of the top pad and it provides a somewhat cushioned base for the horse to stand on. Example would be to put a 1/2″ blue on top for cushion with the yellow under to lengthen the life. The yellow is used as the primary base pad for the founder pads.
The 1/4″ and 3/8″ yellow pads will remain resilient throughout the life of a single shoeing for 4 to 5 weeks.
Great pad for hoof boots when the horse just can’t take the hardness of the sole of a boot. Usually the last pad used when transitioning the hoof from shoes to hard ground.
