So what has Anyone done for thin soled horses? That is IO's big Problem. She is better with a more correct trim but those thin soles have to be delt with. 5 years on the track, with racing plates on the whole time without a break has messed up her feet. I have had recomended to me to pack in Sugardyne overnight as the iodine will toughen the sole, Venice turpitine to again toughen the sole, a high protien/Fat diet to encorage hoof growth and to seal the Feet with Pine Tar or Cornucresine. This should keep the foot from either drying on the sand or getting soaked when out in the grass.
What can be done for this soled horses that helps them be more comfortable? Shoes are just NOT an option right now, wall is too thin to hold nails secure. Thanks MUCH for any replies. I LUV the gals ( and guys) on this forum.
