Just for a moment think about the location of hooves, claws, nails, talons, coincidence that they are at the end of extremities or logical?

It's logical, yes, and it's no coincidence - it's because they would be useless anywhere else. Hooves on the knees would be pointless, as would claws on the stomach, talons on the bum... Edit - just to add to that - Antlers, Rhino horn, tusks...
so could I ask does your job or habitual posture involve having your hands elevated, perhaps using a keyboard or working at a bench for long hours?
Rhino horn is hair Ben
This post is about improving nail growth, something that has been reported by many people using inclined therapy for unrelated conditions, observing nail improvements.Ofc you can ignore or dismiss my post, it's your choice.
An American woman listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the world's longest fingernails has had them broken off in a car crash.
I really don't think there's that great a difference between the density of a cow's horns and it's hooves. I know that pigs' trotters get boiled up and eaten whereas horns get used for other purposes such as knife handles where their hardness is important.
Animal horn ... softens on heating, is somewhat reshapable, and may be regarded as a natural, quasi-thermoplastic material.
Logically the denser material required to build the nails would benefit from the hands being down by our sides most of the day
