A multidisciplinary approach was adopted to complete a comprehensive materials characterisation of the Stratum medium (SM) laminitic donkey hoof wall. The structural organisation and material properties of the SM were evaluated, and the relationship between these characteristics and the radiographic anatomy of the laminitic foot were assessed. In addition, the structure-function relationships of tile SM were explored and the potential effects upon hoof wall function were investigated.
