Never heard that one before!
What bits exactly are supposed to be scent glands?? I guess in some parts thrush could be so normal as to be looked upon as natural by some...
Agree that soaking the feet for around half an hour would be much better than just scrubbing, if there's any chance of any deep infections. I just use old inner tyre tubes(got free from tyre place) and make bags out of them(using rubber shoe glue) then holes along top to put a string thru to gather & tie them on. But if you do this daily for a bit, to treat it thoroughly, then you could revert back to scrubbing to keep it at bay until the hooves have grown healthy. While I'll bring in the 'heavy guns' to treat an infection, I prefer to use ACV as a long term preventative, as it doesn't harm growing tissue any way.
