This has been a interesting and informative thread, I'm beginning to experience some thrush issues on my Rocky's. Dry Cow is on the shopping this for this morning trip to the feed store.

I turn him out for a few hours each day with the cavallo boots with the thick easyboot frog support pads inside. I know he finds them extremely comfortable since he starts yawning and licking as soon as I put them on. Unfortunately I do not recommend the cavallo since they rub his heel bulbs if I leave them on too long. Any boot that would accomodate a thick pad would do the trick. His digital cushion on that foot (heel bulb) used to feel like spongy mush. Since I've been doing the boot thing a few hours each day, they've started to feel more springy. His frog has also since now started to spread out and is finally starting to look healthy.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Update - Pictures


I have now been using No Thrush for 11 days and have attached some photos for comparrison. The first is the first day, before any treatment. I have been applying No Thrush at minimum once daily since then, and twice daily if its wet. The weather was useless the first week, rain and mud, but we've had sunny days since then which is a godsend!

The third photo being today. I can definitely notice a difference, the new frog is coming through and shedding the old infected one, and the hooves are looking much better in general. The sulci although still split is starting to spread. All though we still aren't there yet, its nice to see some improvement! Candy is also much more comfortable and happily not lame.

I would definitely recommend No Thrush to anyone who's horses hooves have a slit sulci and definitely if your horse is suffering thrush. You can apply it 1-2 times a week once infection has cleared up to prevent bacteria and other ickies building up and it keeps the thrush at bay while encouraging healthy growth.

Wow that goot looks so much better. It's amazing how fast that split is healing even in wet conditions.

Now those frogs are getting better get yourself a new farrier. It is his fault those frogs are in that shape to start with and very definately the reason she is showing signs of navicular syndrome. I don't usually bag farriers cause I live with one but that trim is doing your horse harm.
