|Picture not my own but alas, when I went to get a photo of the|
snowball on her hooves they didn't exist!!!
I put the WD-40 on this evening, Wednesday 12/12/12. It felt weird spraying my horses sole with WD-40 but my farrier said.... Today there was no snow compacted into her feet. It may have gotten too warm to compact the snow and keep it in her hooves. But I will keep you all posted as to how this farrier prescribed remedy works. On a warmer day I intend to wash her feet well and then apply the good hoof oil so her feet don't dry out form the water repellent-ness of WD-40. I'd love to hear of others remedies, surprised this occurs in unshod horses as well! I just have to say though, Dani is so tolerant of having her hoof held for a REALLY long time! What a good girl!!
