  1. Hoof Care
    Hello we have just moved two horses from very wet and filthy conditions to a nice new environment. They've been having their hooves cleaned and treated for thrush, but this sweet mare has developed a limp and upon extreme cleaning of front hooves we've found a deep deep hole in both front...
  2. Hoof Care
    Hey all, I'm new here (for you all to know) and I'm still learning, so bare with me. Little about my back ground: I've ridden since I was 3, Western and English. I started competitively Barrel Racing about 4 years back. I have an 8y/o AQHA Palomino mare named Miss Badger Olena, aka Lena, that...
  3. Hoof Care
    So the proud expert that I am, having trimmed my own horse an entire two times, came across another issue during the last trim. Looking over pictures I'd taken once I got home, I saw to my shock and horror that I'd trimmed the two fronts at different angles. One is lower than the other. He...

    Hi I have a problem. My friends horse has completely lost his frog. I mean u can see the navicular tissue. The farrier said to soak his feet in Epsom salt twice a day for ten days and pack it with icthamal at night. This is just for pain management. Then he's going to put a special shoe on to...

    Hello everyone! So my horse in the last month and a half has had this strange, horn like... I don't know. circle. On his front right hoof (see pictures). Last time my trimmer was out, she said she was going to leave it, and let it "protect whatever it is it's protecting". But it's been a month...

    Hello! I’m just looking for some input on my lease horse’s feet. The BO told me he has thrush so we’ve been treating it with thrushbuster. His field has been pretty dry up until that whole Sandy thing came through out area. Things are starting to dry back out, but still a bit muddy. I only...

    I have been battling mild thrush for a few months now, its been such a mild winter that the ground almost never froze, and when it did snow, it would melt leaving pastures muddy for almost 4 months straight, then spring rain... Anyways! I have been beginning to realize my horses frog was not in...

    I'm fairly new to this website so sorry in advance for anything I may not understand. To the point. Yesterday I rode my 6 year old thoroughbred, just plain excersize and jump practice and she seemed fine, no lameness or sore anywhere. It was raining a fair bit today so I just lunged her for...

    Ok, here it goes. My 21 year old gelding who I have owned for 10 years now got thrush a few months ago. He's never had it before and neither has my mare so I'm new to dealing with this personally. I live in Ohio and it's been especially rainy this year and he's been moved to a stall with...

    I was cleaning my horses feet out yesterday, and noticed he had a tag on the back part of his frog on his right front foot. My farrier had taught me how to remove tags and give a basic trim, so I took my hoofknife out and went to cut the tag off. When I cut the tag off, white puss-like liquid...

    Hi, recently my horse got a little itty-bitty peice of glass in his frog, we got all of it out... but he got lame from it, I understood that so I was giving him Bute and soaking his foot and putting KopperKare on it. It has been about a week since he has been lame and there are little to no...
