FALSE QUARTER (in Farriery). A crack on the inner or outer side of a horse's hoof, having the appearance of a piece that has been inserted. It is attended by a violent pain, and opens as the horse sets foot to the ground. Relief may be had by careful shoeing, taking care that the unsound part does not touch the shoe, while the sound portion shall bear fully upon it. Paring and oiling are also of advantage, tending somewhat to restore the part.
