White Line Disease Questions.

So my farrier told me that my mare has white line disease. Is that the same thing as thrush because she told me to use thrush buster on the white line, so my question is.. Is white line disease and thrush the same thing? And Would I treat white line disease with Thrush Buster?

I posted a pic for all to see she had her hooves done today which the pic was taken like 30min after that...

I used an awesome product called White Lightning to clear up my mare's white line. After an application of White Lightning, I followed up with daily Thrush Buster for a week and started her on a biotin supplement to grow out some healthy hoof wall.

Looks like simple wall flare to me, not white line. A proper trim and attention to.diet and.environment will fix that in time.

If you want to.post more.pictures, we could.tell you more. Google how to take good hoof.pictures because there are specific angles we.need to see and the camera has to b on the ground.

Agree with Trinity - there looks to be a little infection present in the stretched laminae, but possibly all it needs is a good trim to get rid of it & correct the flares to help stop it taking hold again. Of course without a good trim & pics, can only guess at whether that will be enough to treat it though.

To answer your question, yes, thrush & 'WLD/seedy' are the same kind of beast - well, can be all manner of different beasts actually - bacterial &/or fungal &/or protazoa. But they're just 'opportunistic' infections that can affect unhealthy hooves, just in different places. Yes, thrushbuster is one treatment that can kill it.

Before I got to your post, I was thinking the same thing.

I have very good luck with Durasole. People around here also use 1/2 bleach, a quick spray every few days to prevent or treat. My last tx was Durasole as a preventative whenever something looked like a potential problem.

Pictures after a trim on a clean hoof would help.

Question: are you saying that this photo is AFTER a trim? Is your horse a barefoot horse? If so, I would say those walls have been left a bit too long. Of course it's hard to tell just from one photo. It looks like a "pasture trim" to me, which most or at least some "regular" farriers will do. A "barefoot" trimmer would take the walls down to nearly the level of the sole, if not all the way to the sole. Maybe it's just a stretched white line from walls that are left too long? That is my guess. A pic of the hoof taken from the heel forward while holding the foot up and a pic of hoof on the ground would help to see if the walls are too long and the hooves are flaring at the bottom. That would indicate a stretched white line. Maybe i'm crazy but again, hard to be sure with just this one photo. Otherwise, those are nice hooves!

No. Thrush is primarily bacterial. Whiteline is more fungal. And they attack different parts of the hoof.

Thrish bister kills both so yes, you can reat either one with it. BUT I don't see any real alarming whiteline disease signs from your picture.
I DO see an inadequately trimmed hoof with some separation between the wall and edge of sole.
