The Articulated Corrective Brace comes in 2 sizes. One is the regular model and covers all the average Thoroughbred, Polo & Quarter horse foals, and the other is large for most Warmblood foals. As a guide, order the regular for smaller breeds and the large for bigger ones, but the difference is not strictly by breed but by the size of the foal and age. The large boot is just one cm wider in the carpus and 3 cm taller. The fetlock and foot area is similar. In small foals, the problem is that the brace is too tall and touches the thorax behind the elbow. A trick for this is to get a round piece of wood or hard rubber approximately 3 cm thick and place it inside the brace on the floor of the foot area, and it will lift the foal when it stands on it. The difference in the hoof and fetlock area you can correct if needed with more bandaging.
