    I want to get my gelding on a hoof supplement. He has contracted heels (getting better) and has a stubborn case of thrush, so I am hoping adding in a supplement will help us fight the thrush and keep it away. Farrier recommended this but its out of my price range...

    My life has been so difficult the last several years. First I went through a divorce and became a single mother. I never thought I'd regroup after that but I found a wonderful man and he and I recently married. The wedding planning was super stressful, and nine months ago my best friend had an...

    Hey all! I just got my girls feet done last night and the farrier told me that both have thrush (which I figured as much) but also the beginning of White Line. She told me it is very very mild and isn't a cause for worry but to take care of it. I love my girls, so obviously I will! Now, in the...

    My horse had cracks on his frog, and his frogs are starting to deteriorate, when i bought him he did not have a lot of his frogs on his back feet, but now his front feet ones are starting to go :-( we have been battling thrush for a while (at least i am pretty sure it's thrush) Either way he is...

    Hi Guys, My horse gets thrush pretty bad because he has a slight club foot so it's much deeper than a standard hoof. I have used Thrushbuster previously and it works well but I think it hurts him. As soon as he smells it he WILL NOT let me pick up his feet and actually will start kind of...

    First of all I need to say I have a Farrier coming out this week asap to get his opinion and have him just tidy up the trim he is calling me tomorrow with a time and day. My farrier was supposed to come last weekend he has cancelled on me twice now so I have called a new one that other boarders...

    I have been looking at a horse to purchase since the beginning of June (would have purchased her back then but the current owner has been away) I was supposed to complete the purchase on Monday and take her home. Today when I went to see her, her hoofs had been trimmed. All of the frogs...

    Weve had horses in the past, but i never had to take care of them when it came to medical concerns. We recently took in 3 mini mares that have some issues. one is pretty overweight, the others are probably OK in that department but all of them have overgrown feet including one with badly...

    First time poster, though I've lurked on this website without bothering to build an account for a couple years :D My mare, Betty, and I have just move from Dallas, Texas to Orlando, Florida about 2 weeks ago. Other than taking some time to adjust to the new environment, she got a bit...

    Hi, I think my barrel horse (thoroughbred gelding) has thrush on his rear right. I just recently noticed it as today he was limping at the trot and lifting it higher than usual at the walk. He seemed hesitant to put pressure on it, and just kept it cocked. I also noticed regular signs like the...

    I have worked with 2 horses on a private farm for about 8 years now. One is a 35 year old WelshX who had laminitis about 2 years ago, he's too old to be ridden and trips/limps every so often because of permanent damage to his feet. THE OTHER HORSE is the real problem. 3 years ago he came in...

    Hello again hoof people! Here we have a horse bought by my friend earlier this week - 17yo quarter horse that has foundered. No radiographs sorry. SO we've begun fixing it, toes were already brought back, so I've lowered the heel a smidge, dug quite a bit of bar out today which really seemed to...

    My horse hasn't gotten trimmed in 6 weeks. His feet are a little long but we are taking care of that soon. Anyways… My horse has thrush and I can't seem to cure it with 'Thrush Off' (I think it's the same thing to 'Thrush Buster'). I really need to get this thing gone. Now. I haven't ridden him...

    I'm sure many of you will understand the frustration and stress thrush brings on.. Ever since I have gotten my gelding, he gets thrush NON STOP and his frog is always shedding.. Maybe has there been only one time the farrier has come out and trimmed out his frog and it had been perfectly intact...

    My mare is currently dealing with a pretty severe infection from thrush (**** wet pasture). After a trim on Friday by my farrier, I was told to keep her dry and find a way to treat her feet. What happened was that the frog overgrew in the six week span between trims to the point that...

    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...

    So I have a thoroughbred gelding and I have been battling thrush with him all spring. He get his hooves picked out and brushed every single day. I then apply thrush buster. He is turned into a muddy paddock for a ten hours a day. Not turning him out is not an option as he will injure himself or...

    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...

    We just purchased a horse who will arrive on the ranch in a few days. Apparently, she has thrush (we find this out the day after we fork over the money, of course). We have feathered drafts and use Eqyss Micro-Tek spray on their scratches - nothing else affects it at all, but the spray makes it...
