User: The bottom of a horse's front hoof is the _______ surface. A. palmar B. plantar C. caudal D. dorsal

Weegy: A horse hoof is a structure surrounding the distal phalanx of the 3rd digit (digit III of the basic pentadactyl limb of vertebrates, evolved into a single weight-bearing digit in equids) of each of the four limbs of Equus species, [ which is covered by complex soft tissue and keratinised (cornified) structures. Since a single digit must bear the full proportion of the animal's weight that is borne by that limb, the hoof is of vital importance to the horse. The phrase "no hoof, no horse" underlines how much the health and the strength of the hoof is crucial for horse soundness. Contents ]

The bottom of the horse's hoof has several different parts. The triangular shaped softer part in the middle is call a "frog". The flat part around the frog is the "sole". At the wider end of the frog is the "heel" and the outside of the hoof that the horseshoe it nailed to is the "hoof wall". At each shoeing or trim (every 6 to 8 weeks) the farrier will trim all parts of the hoof. This will keep the hoof healthy and if there is a problem forming in any part of the hoof it will be identified and dealt with immediately.

The frog is a part of a horse's hoof, located on the underside, which should touch the ground if the horse is standing on soft footing. The frog is triangular in shape, and extends from the heels to mid-way toward the toe, covering around 25% of the bottom of the hoof.[1] The frog acts as a shock absorber for the foot when it makes impact with the ground, decreasing the force placed on the bones and joints of the leg.

Plantar fasciitis (PF) is a painful inflammatory process of the plantar fascia, the connective tissue on the sole (bottom surface) of the foot. It is often caused by overuse of the plantar fascia or arch tendon of the foot. It is a very common condition and can be difficult to treat if not looked after properly. Another common term for the affliction is "policeman's heel
