Re: Help! My Horse's hooves are falling apart!
I think all this dry hot weather is causing havoc in a lot of horses feet !!
My 2 are barefoot, live out 24/7 and although all 8 feet have little cracks just starting - the farrier is due tomorrow, thank goodness - it's the white horn which has suffered most.
I've tried a lot of different things, but the one I've found the most effective is Kevin Bacons liquid hoof dressing - it's about £13 for a pot which has a brush in the lid, and you paint it on all over and under the foot starting off about 2 or 3 times week, then a bit less as the feet get used to it.
I always thought Stockholm Tar was more for thrush & infections than hydrating?
Also perhaps think of giving her a biotin supplement in her feed - good for feet and skin.
What we need is rain lol !!
