    hoof help?????

    The horse I've been riding recently has something funny with his frog. A flap of it on both front hooves has come up and the owner just says to pull it off but I don't know if I should. What should I do about it????

    It shouldn't be pulled off, but cut off with a sharp knife if you don't have a hoof knife available. Be sure to cut away from yourself -- those knives are wicked.

    I agree, I wouldn't pull it off. :) Could do more harm than good! I also say cut it...but be careful.

    You can pull it of, but only when it is dead skin, not when the flesh is still living.

    Otherwise you will hurt him and he may get scared when you get his hoofs.
