Re­gard­ing Cracks

Horse & Rider - - Healthy Hooves -

Horses in­her­it­ing thin hoof walls and poor hoof qual­ity may be pre­dis­posed to quar­ter cracks. If your horse has weak, shelly hooves, in-depth blood work can de­ter­mine min­eral or vi­ta­min de­fi­cien­cies that may re­spond to diet mod­i­fi­ca­tions or sup­ple­ments to en­cour­age the pro­duc­tion of qual­ity horn.
