So I have a thoroughbred gelding and I have been battling thrush with him all spring. He get his hooves picked out and brushed every single day. I then apply thrush buster. He is turned into a muddy paddock for a ten hours a day. Not turning him out is not an option as he will injure himself or someone else if he is stuck in a stall. His stall is cleaned twice daily and is always dry.
I'm wondering if part of the cause of this could his hoof shape; he has very typical thoroughbred feet. Low heel, long toe. I have been working with my farrier and vet to correct this for a long time now.
I am calling the vet tomorrow, just curious if anyone else has dealt with thrush this persistent before and what they have done about it.
