It seems that everyone's trying to find the right balance between a hoof that isn't dry and brittle, and one that isn't overly saturated with moisture. It seems people put on all the different hoof dressings and conditioners during the dry months, like winter, when the horses feet are a little dry, and maybe have a few cracks. But what do you do when it's mucky and wet outside when those dressings won't really help, and your horses hooves are TOO moisturized? (for lack of a better word)?
Now I know of course diet is always so important for healthy hooves, however I feel as though that can't help when your horse is standing out in a wet field after snow has melted or it's rained, and their hooves seem to have soaked up all the moisture.
What's everybody's thoughts on this? Any preventative measures for this kinda thing or things you can do?
