Bad fairrer work = kankers?

Is that true in horses? I know the Kanker sore that my mom gets sometimes are horrid. But that's such a difference in types of skin tissue right??? Well maybe I'm crazy. The person I was talking to said that it is bad fairrer work that caused the kankers in the horses feet? Thing is I use the same farrier and I've never had a single issue nor have dozens of other people I've talked to.

Enlighten me?

The only thing I do know about the horse is that it has calcium deposts on its whithers. Mare about 7 ( I think). Not often ridden, told because of bad conformation. Any help at all??

Not at all. Its a bit like thrush gone feral... on steroids! And so far as im aware, surgical debridement is the only effective treatment. It is considered contagious though so if a farrier suspects it, he should disinfect his tools and advise the owner of the sufferer to get a vet asap
