As the old saying goes “no foot, no horse” and just because its summer (and hopefully dry and sunny) it doesn’t mean that your horse’s feet are less susceptible to problems. Over the summer your horses’ hooves can go through the wars. For a start their exposure to long dry days along with heavy dewy mornings can play havoc with the moisture content of hoof. Hacks and turnout on hard ground can also lead to bruising and cracks developing which can both be a pain (no pun intended!) to treat.
