I have been out of town for the past few days now, so I hope when I go back to the barn tomorrow, this mare's feet will be in better shape!

I had a feeling that the poison would LIKELY effect all hooves, as well as LIKELY other cellular tissues of fast growing potential; similar to chemotherapy and it's effect on all of the cells with relatively more rapid "turn over". Posted via Mobile Device
I deleted it because I saw it leading to an argument, which wouldn't help the OP. That's usually how these threads go. You post something to help, then somebody tries to prove you wrong. I don't aim to argue about this subject too much because I don't have any evidence that people that are posting have ever picked up a horse's hoof. They can be reciting information they found on the internet. I see no need to elaborate

I was certainly not looking to argue. If you've read any of my posts on this site, I stay quite far away from that stuff, other than once or twice having tried to help and chill out the others involved in discussions of that kind.
I was being quite serious about looking for info about selenium poisoning, as it sounded like a topic which I would be well schooled to become aware of.
I also have, many hundreds of times, picked up horses hooves. Certainly does not make me anything close to a farrier in knowledge, however. That being the case, I seek information at every opportunity from those with said knowledge.
That said, I certainly can respect your choice not to elaborate and stay free from any possible arguments. I do hope you can see that the arguments you speak of would not have come from me.
Best to you! B2H

Comment wasn't meant for you at all. I just wanted to put what little info I had on here and maybe it'll help. Nobody on here will be an expert on selenium poisoning because it's rare. I've done around 25,000 horses and only seen 3 cases.

^ Okay, gotcha. It IS rare in that case! Wow. I'll take that as a good thing! :0)
