Revision of Older Duplo Models
During the past years, the Duplo Composite Horseshoe has proven its advantages in various applications and has provided numerous horses with a comfortable walking experience. The developers have learned a lot since the earliest days - thanks to both the permanent use of Duplo Horseshoes for their own horses and the constant contact with horse owners and farriers. At the same time, production techniques have considerably advanced and many ideas which would have been unimaginable a decade ago can now be implemented without any problems.
For those reasons, the older Duplo models are currently being revised in order to make our (already high-quality) horseshoes even better. We are looking forward to your feedback - and your horse's!
Improved Position of Nail Holes
In case of the oval horseshoes, the nail holes were shifted 2mm towards the toe area in order to facilitate the ideal placement of the nails in the hoof wall.
The prefabricated toe rocker facilitates breakover without you having to rasp or bend the horseshoe before its use.
Every edge of the revised models - especially in the heel area - is thoroughly chamfered so that another step of procedure during the preparation of the horseshoe is eliminated. Besides, that way it happens even more rarely that a horse steps on its front shoes with its hind hooves and loses the horseshoes.
Anatomical Sole Relief
A small bevel on the hoof side of the horseshoe protects sensitive soles from undesirable pressure.
Two Knob Arrays for Every Horseshoe
Up to now, there were some Duplo models with four knob arrays. However, experience has shown that two knob arrays are thoroughly enough to protect the horseshoe from torsion. That's why the revised models are generally equipped with just two knob arrays - except for the open-toed models that are only used for therapeutic purposes and therefore don't have any knobs.
Synthetic Rim for Every Horseshoe
Thanks to new machines and better techniques, it is now possible to attach an elastic synthetic rim not only to Standard horseshoes, but also to the slightly harder Extra horseshoes.
The profil was optimized. Until all models have been revised, you will receive different profile versions depending on the size of the horse-shoe.
