offcourse. An infection caused it. Abscess in the hoof. But the rupture happened overnight. And it had minor swelling before it happened. Not even enough to get ones attention. So pls need more suggestions and advice if anyone has more experience.

Sorry for the loss of your horse, that is horrible! The professional you should have asked as to what caused this, would be the vet when he euthanized him, we can only speculate as we did not see the horse nor do we have a degree in vet medicine. I would give the attending vet a call & ask.

If it ruptured to the point the hoof came off in the middle of the night, how did the horse not bleed to death before anyone found it?

So then the hoof didn't come off?? If an animal loses part of a limb they will bleed.

poppy .. the hoof is like your fingernail. You can lose a fingernail without losing the first digit of your finger. It sounds like the hoof wall sloughed off.

OP. If there was an abscess that ruptured at the top, then that is the reason the hoof became separated. Whether or not your stallion showed it, it was going on longer than overnight. What caused the abscess, none of us can tell you..

I'm sorry for your loss....

Sorry, when I hear someone say the hoof came off to me that sounds like the whole hoof which has a blood supply came off from coronet band on down.

Understandable, however the hoof is actually just the growth/structure part around the 3rd digit .. not the 3rd digit itself. So now ya know!

Please be aware, before you bash, that the OP, evidently, is posting from an African country. Their claim that vet care is not the same as in many other places in the world are quite likely.

Op, I am so sorry for your loss. The extent of an infection that could cause such a catastrophic hoof wall failure really can happen fairly quickly. The hoof is especially prone to such quick problems due to its inability to swell.
