Question What are the Seat of Corns?

Hi everyone,

I am just wondering what exactly are the "Seat of Corns" in the horse's hoof?

Thanks!
Gwyneth

Hi,

Seat of corns refers to the very rear bits of sole, between the junction of the outer wall at the heel & the bars. So called because shod horses commonly get 'corns' there.

I think I actually had a corn in the seat the other day. It was hard, and looked like hoof material. I carved it out. I've never seen that before.

^I could make a rude remark about finding corn in your seat But this is just the term for a bruise basically, so barring too much pressure on the area(eg. Lumps of sole near front of frog, overlayed, weightbearing bars & such may need to be 'relieved'), I wouldn't be doing any digging.

So, if it wasn't a corn, maybe a brussel sprout?
