    I'm not 100% sure why Dawn is the preferred choice in the process, but I have not once seen any other brand mentioned so I assume there is an ingredient in there just like the athlete's foot cream has to have 1% Clotrimazole in it or it is a waste of effort.

    I let "the Boys" in the arena to play last night while I cleaned stalls.
    Cody was being a butt to the ole man Vista Pushing him around the Arena.
    Well Vista had enough and then kicked Cody in the chest.. served him right!.
    But now Cody has a moon shaped cut . I just put some swat on it to keep flies out.. no need for Doc's on that :)

    Well...did some research and found No Thrush highly recommended. Having it next day shipped. This will give me a couple weeks to tackle the thrush prior to the farrier visit, and see if he sees a difference! It has the copper sulfate my farrier recommended.

    There is video on it on YouTube. Shows cracked heels like JayJays....keep your fingers crosses.

    Tomorrow dry cow oitment is another highly recommended product used for horse thrush. I've not used it or No Thrush so I can only go on what I've read for recommendations. Several of the site experts on here recommend it highly in the hoof health section.

    There are a lot of things that will clear up thrush. The most important thing is to get the horse out of a muddy place, clean the feet daily, and actually put the stuff all over the sole daily.

    Thrush X works well.

    There is also a product that is called Coppertox, but I didn't find a link.

    The thing about any of these copper products is that they will stain you green. Your fingernails will be green until they grow out, so you might want to wear gloves.

    I have never dealt with thrush .. I hope JJ gets well soon.
    As muddy as it has been this year I have been worried about it and very careful about keeping feet clean.

    Yes, I've seen the coopertox, that is what is recommended for my moms goats.

    It's been a wet spring, or he was kept in a filthy stall....which ever, he came with it....I will be better about cleaning his feet out, but his stall is nice and dry and clean. His paddock is dry too...we are actually needing rain! Farrier said, I read this too, but not sure if its true...this comes mostly from standing in manure and urine soaked bedding.....

    The poor guy, wish he could talk. With all his scars and now feet, he's been thru the war I suspect....maybe I DON'T want to know! it might break my heart.

    Here's something interesting...hopefully you guys won't think I'm a WACK job....but after the farrier and I were done talking, and I was walking him home, I noticed he had a tear stain going down from one eye. Now it just might be coincidence, but when I brought him up to talk to mom, it dried up and went away...but told mom, I think he was crying because we were talking about him and he was sad about his condition.......I KNOW, I KNOW....I'm TOTALLY reading into that one..... . But I'll believe that it's true, and he knows now he is safe with me!, sap that I am....I'll take all the wounded animals and children out there!!
