Well some do use bleach, not all that uncommon. I wouldn't get my panties in a bundle over that one.

I use Thrushbuster. It's purple and it works for me.

.

Symptoms do vary, lameness, sore frogs, smell, ooze, deterioration of the frog.

Poor diet, wet weather, but thrush can happen even in the dry.

Your roomy may be over-reacting, it is possible to have gotten Thrush in the 3 days since you last say your Horse but kinda rare to happen that fast I believe.


.

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Thrush is nearly unavoidable in my area of Oregon- sounds like you're having similar conditions in Bend. The best treatment for it is to keep the hooves picked out and any flaps trimmed.

I've been having a terrible time with my horse's hooves and thrush, partially due to his contracted heels in the front (we're working on getting his feet in better shape, but it's a long process) and partially due to the wet bedding in his stall not being cleaned out properly (now I'm giving it a 2nd cleaning pretty much every evening). I've used ThrushBuster and No Thrush and Pete's Goo, but what really made them look a hundred times better was my farrier cleaning up all the loose bits. Hopefully he's done shedding frog now

I wouldn't pay too much attention to your friend's diagnosis, though you should tell her to keep bleach away from your horse's hooves; hopefully she at least diluted it Take a look at the hooves yourself, and if you see anything concerning, ask your farrier about it next time he's out.

it doesnt matter what was used, what matters is the fact it is my horse, not hers. And I have done my research. You don't just apply straight bleach and bleach is harsh, killing off the good cells as well. It should be my option to treat my horse how I feel is appropriate so yes my pantys are in a bunch. How would you feel if someone took it into thier hands to treat your horse and didnt bother to call or text you until after the fact.. especially with my roommates tendency to over react like I stated in my original post

Honestly it seems like their heart was in the right place. If they continued to treat after you asked them not to then I can understand being upset. Did she say she didn't dilute the bleach? The only people that would dare touch my horse I wouldn't have an issue with them treating. They don't always do as I would but they still have more knowledge than me. Most people won't pick up my girls feet as she would kick their face off so I don't worry. It was one time and I highly doubt she did any damage. I pick my horses hooves daily. Thrush pops up when it's wet or dry and just whenever it feels like it.

I totally understand, especially since it wasn't an emergency. I board with a friend of mine who has the OK to do whatever she feels is necessary with my horses - she's bathed and groomed my horse when she thought he needed it, put mud on their legs when she thought he needed it, changed their blankets, moved them around. But she's the only one that I'm ok with doing that, and I know that, while she might do things I probably wouldn't do, she would never put my horse at risk. She knows enough about horses for me to feel comfortable.

However, if I didn't trust her as much, I would only ever expect someone to do what was necessary in an emergency situation - which would usually mean calling the vet and checking my written instructions for what to do if I cannot be contacted. This mainly says do the minimum necessary up to a certain $$ amount to get my horse stable - and if it's going to take more than that, as in colic surgery for example, then euthanize the horse. In the case of thrush or something else minor, I expect to be contacted before my horse receives any care. This is a major liability issue for both the over-stepping person and for the horse owner - what if one of them injured one another?

No matter her intentions, this person obviously isn't trustworthy enough to the OP to be caring for her horse (kicking a horse to get it to stand up?). And what if one of them injured the other? It only takes one time with one kick to start a lawsuit, something neither of them needs whether or not it'd be successful. I'd be pissed if this was my horse.

So why not ask that person to not touch the horse? I didn't see where she has told this girl to stay away from her horse. I feel that proper hoof care is an essential so if this girl has never been told to stay away then she probably thought she was helping.
