I really was hoping it would have been about seedy toe ( and a topic on this was recently on JUST seedy toe)....I should have known different. :roll:

I posted some good unbias information on Seedy Toe ... aka White Line Diesease and from my understanding if not caught earlier enough a resection is needed to get rid of it

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

I don't think there were any hurt feelings about this, and certainly shouldn't be. When a hoof question is asked, barefoot vs. shoes is a topic that is likely to come up, because most hoof things are seen/cared for by the professional hoof people, whether they are farriers or trimmers, and of course, we will add any observations twe may have made in the course of our work, and how we've fixed it, etc.
Yes, you only asked "what is it?" but to answer that, it's very easy to want to explain the circumstances that influence the occurence, so that you could perhaps avoid it in your own horse, as logically, the next question would be "why" or "how does it occur".
Nobody has been disrespectful and your question has been the more thorougly answered for it. Perhaps you should be very specific when asking a question and state you only want minimal information-"just the simple, basics, please" It is a public thread and everyone that wants to help will most likely always offer more information than you really ask for if you don't stop us in our tracks.

I am not the original poster but someone that didn't want to wade through arguments of shoes vs barefoot. As I said I am just about drowned with the barefoot people arguing one way and those going for shoes the other and done my own research regarding this topic. I can go to COTH and see trainwreck after trainwreck on this topic.

I had a horse that had chronic seedy toe and I did not go bare foot to resolve it. I had an excellent team working between my vet and farrier and we kept him as sound.

AND HE WAS SHOD throughout.

Since you weren't the OP, could have just opted to NOT read the thread. =)

Wow...another thread gone awry!

Barefoot and Peggy Sue thanks for the article and the discussion. It is always a very hard thing to discuss because people are so passionate. I, too, wanted to read about Seedy toe, but got a bonus! Some great information!

I think there is a place for barefoot and shod horses. Although I choose the barefoot route because of pretty much what Barefoot talked about, I do understand that some horses simply need a "fix". Just like us humans need things to fix our ailing bodies, misalignments, etc. We have domesticated an animal who out in the wild would never need shoes....JMO

Actually the ones in teh wild that NEED shoes end up as critter food.. survival of the fittest and a horse with bad feet would not survive long enough to be studied...

And one of the MAIN reasons put shoes on their horses is so that the PEOPLE can ride their horses on rocky terrain, concrete, etc. In the wild this could be done NATURALLY!

I AM NOT going to continue this with you. Like others have said, everyone is passionate about what they believe in. We could all argue about this for years....
