It snowed the other day, and when I went to my horse, I picked out her feet, they were all full of snow and ice packed in there (she wears shoes).
Once I got down to the hoof.. I noticed that on the heels of her hooves.. it is sort of white and soft, and gross looking. Same with on her frog on a couple of her hooves.
On one of the hooves, the frog and heel is sort of purpley coloured and gross looking.
And on the hoof wall, just below the coronary band, on the frontside, there is a little white damp line..
I am not sure if the snow gross conditions makes horses hooves damp, and sort of soggy,soft?
I don't think she has thrush.. b/c it doesnt smell, and it is not goopy.
Any help would be great, as I don't know much about horse's feet.. :)
