Well for 1. My horse was abandoned for a year before I got him and when we brought him in for the farrier, he told us that because the horses rain scald, seedy toe and greasy heel were left ignored for so long that they would probably reoccurr and our climate here does not help so it's a matter of prevention. 2. My dad has worked on many horse studs all over Australia and did most of the vet work himself so obviously he treated alot worse then just greasy heel. In fact I've never seen him faced with a problem he couldn't fix or improve until the vet got there. I meant by many cases he has seen alot of horses from different places with it. So your assumption of my father being untrustworthy is quite rude and untrue. His treatment for mud fever worked wonderfully last time, I wasn't able to access it this time. 3. My horse is in a 60 acre paddock with one other horse, they tend to only crap in one spot and once that area is the slightest crowded it is shovelled up and bagged for fertilizer and sold so NO it isn't from a filthy environment as you are suggesting mate. 4. I came here. To learn, not be judged on the fact that my horse has greasy heel in the first place, like I said I have discussed with other owners in my area and they agreed that our climate is a hindrance. Now if anyone else wants to ruin the somewhat helpful advice by being rude and narky and downright pitiful by showing unkindness towards me on this thread then get on your high horse and go somewhere else. Only helpful advice is wanted, thanking you, by the way horse's foot is FANTASTIC! !!!!! quikheal is doing the job! Many thanks xxz
