We’ve had hot, humid and often wet weather the past few weeks. This means that our horses are standing inside more often than not, that when they are outside they are standing in mud, and the bottom line is it hasn’t been good for their hooves. Even when you clean the stalls twice a day, they are still standing in muck. Freedom has some thrush that I’m now treating and I’m redoubling my efforts to keep his feet clean and dry.
I’ve found that pelleted bedding is better at absorbing the excess moisture (i.e., urine). Do you have any tips?
