Helping make a horses with sore hooves more comfortable...
Well, Jasper's front hooves are sore(farrier issues), and I was trying to figure if there is something I can do to keep him more comfortable/encourage a heel first landing. He's not "lame" at this point and is capable of trotting ok on the lunge line, but you can tell something is off.
I have some left over pieces of an exercise mat from a different project, and I was wondering if it would help make him more comfortable if I taped some of it to his hooves...? Would it hurt to try? Are there any other ways of making him more comfortable with stuff I might have around the house?
