Yep, I squeeze it in at the top of the crack (heel bulb?) hold the foot up to see how far it spread, then squirt some more into the crack/hole in the frog. Then ijust hold his foot up a while to let is seep in there.

good deal. Another product that I LOVE (am using it currently) is no thrush. It's dry which to me makes more sense as thrush thrives on wet. Just a thought for you. ;)

Thank you for the suggestion, I checked out the website.. makes sense to me (the why put liquid on something you want to dry out part)!

Hi,

Keeping him on firm, dry footing as much as possible is one important factor that will help him improve, as is keeping him well trimmed, as hoof form such as he has is unfortunately not helping his feet be healthy & therefore less prone to infection. Protecting his weak heels adequately for him to use them properly & therefore develop strength would also be a good move, as is careful consideration of diet & nutrition.

Oh crud.. i'm not sure when he is due for a trim, i'm only at the barn 2X a week and never during the day, when the farrier visits. I *think* he was trimmed 3 weeks ago, could be 4. You mention weak heels, is that due to the thrush? Or the trim?

More likely the thrush is a 'symptom' of his hoof form/function, not the other way round. Without much more info(& even then...) couldn't say if the trimmer was the source of his problems or just not helping. I think it's generally more about environment/lifestyle than trimming most of the time re heels.
