One of the five basic hoof shapes listed in the eagle eye approach suggested by Scott Simpson, CJF. The Stubby pattern is generally round, but wider than it is long. The widest part of the hoof will be about midway between the toe and heels.

This allows for the creation of applications that can gain additional functionality if a library is present, but that do not fail to load if the library is not installed .
