Welcome on our blog about hoofcare

We will take care of our horse or rather horse feet or even the hoof fork. This range is called this range, and this gap between the glume and the fork. Be careful, it can be dangerous when you don't care.

What does a healthy wild horse's foot look like?

A horse's foot must be short, with little or no wall protruding from the sole. The heels should be low. The sole must be concave, the fork must have a leather texture. Seams, cracks, breaks are missing.

How to maintain your horse's hoof?

So, this is a step not to be taken lightly since a rotten fork hurts your horse. The best thing is to clean it every week and be careful so that the gap does not go that far. You can immediately recognize that your horse has pain in this fork, because it does not really support its foot. It is a problem that we do not worry about too much, yet it is necessary to see all this from the beginning of the infection. In fact, your veterinarian will have to perform his consultation routine once a month.

How to treat Hoof care?

To treat, there are several solutions. The first and one of the most constraining is to do the foot bath. Indeed, it is a little more difficult to keep the horse in hot water, and yet, it is a practice that you can do easily. In the past, we used what is called Vilatte Liqueur, which is a very aggressive product made from a mixture of copper sulphates. Depending on the depth of the range, this treatment can hurt, and it is a real torture for horses. Now there are other methods, the foot bath with bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide. The goal is to give a supple look to his foot.

Another method requires manual work with an antibiotic and a brush. It is just more correct to check the horse's hoof carefully.
