when you do the ACV mix...do you need to refresh it for each hoof? By the time I get to the 4th hoof it is kinda of dirty water.
Also want to concur with all the heat/dry/chipping comments. Same here. I am in southern Middle Tennessee and we are really short on rainfall.
Two of my four horses have minor toe cracks. One is club-footed and I'm sure that adds to the issues because I have a tough time keeping him balanced
I keep my four filed down every two weeks. I now have some arthritis in both hands and I can't pull the knippers when the hooves are "summer hard".
I also have a horse that is metabolic and has laminitic issues, so I keep a really close eye on his hooves. He keeps his heels worn down very nicely, but he has always grown enough toe in a month to support another horse.
We are still in the low 80's. Once the temps start cooling down and there's a little more moisture in the ground, the toe crack issues will disappear if I am doing what I'm supposed to be doing
