Repairing Hoof Cracks in Horses Hooves by a Professional Farrier

The smallest of cracks can equal the largest of problems. Hoof cracks can be very detrimental to the health and soundness of your horse. Bacteria eats away at the live tissue under the hoof wall and can eventually cause lameness if neglected to treat. The condition of the hoof itself can deteriorate and cause major issues and difficulty to keep horse shoes on, unhealthy hoof wall and in some cases lack of performance with the horse. So, the smallest of cracks can be a big issue in any horse’s hoof. It is highly recommended to have your farrier check your horses’ hooves if there is a crack present to determine what corrective procedure is needed.

As soon as the hoof cracks and the thrush is present it becomes difficult to keep it clean unless opened properly by the farrier.

Horse owners – Do not attempt to do this. Let the professionals handle it. It can be overdone.

Owners are WELCOME to contact us, send photos, etc for advice and to find farrier services near you.
