Horses are having more body issues due to heel pain in their hooves. Pick up your horses hoof, there should be no cracks going up to the coronet band from the frog. If you have this you have deep bacterial and or fungal issues going on that topical applications (sometimes toxic) are not getting deep enough into hoof to treat. This is an amazing inexpensive and non toxic to you, or your horse, soak. It actually detoxes the hoof as well like a people foot detox soak. Great to do before transitioning to barefoot.
