The Mustad DM is a ¾ fullered shoe, designed for the Warmblood horse to suit most riding and wear requirements. Compared to the LB and BM shoe this shoe is slightly longer in shape and has therefore a more oval shape with extra width in the toe and branches tapering down to the heels. This gives a very favorable wear pattern in the shoe. It comes in both clipped and unclipped models (DU) and is available in a wide variety of sizes and sections.
The front shoes are symmetrical in shape, with boxed heels. Hind shoes have a left and right shape with straight cut heels. The hind outside branch is slightly longer and the nail holes punched a fraction
coarser for optimum fitting and nailing on.
On all DM models with a web width of 22mm, the inside edge on the ground surface has a semi concave section in order to reduce weight and improve traction. This also assists in reducing the build up of mud around the shoe.
The semi concave section does not run through the heels in order to improve support during landing and to provide a perfect base for stud holes. Having full heels also allows the farrier the option of forging a variety of innovative alternatives in the heel area of the shoe.
Sole relief on the hoof surface of the shoe is a standard feature in order to prevent any bruising of the sole in the toe area. All edges of the shoe are broken or boxed to prevent self injury of the horse.
Some DM models are available with extra long heels making it a fast and efficient way of forging bar shoes, heels caulks, wedge heels and heel extensions.
