My young horse had a crack in the front of his hoof and I really struggled to get rid of it when we had all the wet weather.
I have dug into it to clear out the black debris, but it has now turned into seedy toe, with the crack about 1" long.
I clean it out, spray it with silvoid , allow to dry and bung the hole up with cotton wool dipped in a mild iodine solution, plus generously rasp the toe back to try and alleviate further cracking.
Unfortunately I am getting nowhere.
Can anyone give me any advice. ie.. should I rasp the front wall right back to expose the hole or is there anything topical that will stop further deterioration.
