What is the Buttress Line?

Wondering how to Boot (shoe) a Horse?  New to our Natural Hoof Products?  First you need to measure your horse Hoofs.   After a fresh Barefoot Trimming, you need to measure the width and length of the hoof, side to side and toe to the buttress line.  The buttress line of a horse hoof is the furthest weight bearing point (Pick up the hoof, draw an imaginary line across the hoof from side to side, where the hoof wall ends, and that is the buttress line).
