Saddlebredridder, don't ***** foot around her as it confirms in her mind that she should be nervous. Be confident. Please post a few pics after the farrier has worked on her.

Desperado, no need to get niggly. If you have evidence to the contrary, that makes you think that hoof oil does indeed improve health & strength of the dead tissue, and cannot ever exacerbate wall infections, as said before, it's worth considering. IME, my opinion & other's evidence makes perfect sense & the claims of improved health, etc do not, but I've never seen anything remotely like good evidence for that view, so if it was shown...

My horse had terribly shelly thin hoof walls when she was pregnant. Had I known she was pregnant, her nutrition would have changed long before I found out.

My first farrier long ago showed me that oil cannot seep in thru hoof wall unless the protective outside coat put out by the periople has been rasped off. He recommended Booey (sp) clay. Her feet sucked up the moisture like crazy, even the walls. Her hoof walls became darker with the moisture sucked up.

I am sorry I forgot to update has been busy here. Got some show lambs for my kids to show in 4H One of my mares had her baby a wonderful colt. This mare is still pregnant. She has had her feet done twice and they look so much better. She stands so good for the farrier no sedation needed. I will get pics as soon as I can.
