For many of us, the cooler fall season has arrived. The flies and biting insects have abated and working with our horses is easier and more comfortable. However, autumn often means wetter weather. While morning dew and some damp soil around the water trough can help moisturize your horse's and pony's hooves, too much wet can cause problems. Thrush is a common problem that may not be as apparent in the dry summer months. But if your horse is standing on soggy soil, soiled bedding or manure, thrush can flare up and if not treated can lead to painful and debilitating hoof damage. Learn how to identify, treat and avoid thrush before the problem gets out of hand.
