    Piggymum, horses don't necessarily get thrush from wet conditions. It's just something we need to be mindful of.

    My mare suffered with thrush here in sunny Ireland (NOT) and I used iodine and it cleared it up, she hasn't suffered in about 2yrs with it :) just wash/clean the hoof and then spray on the iodine

    I used to use bleach water (which is a bad idea, I found out, because it's a bit caustic and has a very short shelf life, despite the strong bleachy smell), but then my mom researched a bit and found that the plain, amber-colored, ORIGINAL Listerine is supposed to work really well. We tried it, and sure enough, the thrush was gone so fast. It's not caustic and has a very long shelf life. It also gets rid of head lice like crazy. Don't ask me how I know that...
