Is there anything else I can do to help prevent my horse from future hoof issues?
Little Rosie has had quite a few hoof problems in the past. She foundered in 2007 but has made a full recovery and is always barefoot (unless shoes are needed for health purposes). A few years ago, after she came back from other people who had her, she had abcesses in all four hooves. Both these have happened before I got her. Finally, last September she had white line separation. She has fully recovered from all of these and now has healthy, strong feet without shoes and is also in regular work (including trail rides).
One of my biggest concerns for her is that she doesn't end up with future hoof issues like what she's already gone through. She's checked over daily, hooves picked out at least once a day, we keep an eye on her grain intake, and I don't put any hoof oil or dressing on her (except for shows). Is there anything else I can do?
