Smallish Hole On Toe

Recommended Posts

Hi Peter

 

I have been having my horse Thor (Fjord horse) trimmed every 4 weeks and have never had a problem with lameness, abscess etc. His feet are in top shape and very strong, almost brakes the trimmers tools! The only thing that has always been there (since the day i bught him, he is 5 now) is a smallish hole in the toe area on his near side front foot. It has been there since the day I bought him at 18months and even after regular trimming still seems to grow down? I have had two different trimmers since I bought him and both were good however the one I have used for the last 18 months is really good and after a trim the hole is less noticeable however 4 weeks later you can see it again.

 

He's never been lame and it doesn't bother him however it is a nuisance as I have to pack it with 1/3 cotton wool ball if I take him out as small stones get stuck in it.

 

Any ideas on this?

 

Cheers

Belinda

Hi Belinda,

 

where abouts on his toe? in the sole, in the white line?

I will try and get a pic. It is on the white line, not the sole. He is not lame and it has never worried him, only when a stone gets caught in it/

I'm wondering if he has a bug in there Belinda, it would seem strange to have white line separation in just one area. Does it have black/dark junk there? and have the trimmers made an attempt to open it up at all?

 

cheers
