I am taking on a horse that has horrible front hooves. He develops thrush all the time, his frog grows weird and sometimes out the back of his hoof. He does have crooked legs too as an FYI.
He has had shoes on and shoes off. Currently is barefoot. Yeah as I write this I go WTF why am I doing this LOL I know they have used a lot of koppertox on him over the years and also has treated with the stuff with the gas and the bag on their hoof (that I can’t remember the name of right now).
He does have some allergy issues and is currently taking allergy shots.
I’m thinking take him off grains and just on a balancer with alfalfa. Getting rid of any excess sugars. He is a big horse and needs a lot of calories though…NOT an easy keeper.
I’ll try to get pictures ASAP for you all as soon as I get him to my house.
Looking for any ideas to help him get over this issue, he has been seen by a vet before but I don’t think anything aggressive was done with him.
Any ideas of things to try?
Thanks in advance!
