My 11 year old TB is barefoot currently, and I have been told he has dry hooves. So, naturally I rushed out and bought hoof dressing, and followed the label.
And when the label instructions of "Use on hooves when needed" (fabulous instruction there, by the way), wasn't ambiguous enough, I started using it twice a day (in the morning and in the evening, and picking out his feet both times as well for good measure), in addition to any time I rode I would dress his feet after riding.
So, naturally I've been told by my farrier that his feet are drier than before (of course ...), and I've noticed that his feet are smelling thrushy, just my luck!
So I've got the thrush buster out which is working wonderfully, but I'm wondering if there's anything natural I can use for his dry feet? Or possibly a better suited product?
My farrier reccomended I use what I already have .. but clearly that's not working.
A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
