Question: How do I know my horse has thrush?
Answer: You will quickly recognize thrush if you find a black, moist, foul smelling substance when you clean out the hooves. The thrush will likely be hiding in the deeper areas of the cleft. The smell of thrush is unmistakable. As you clean the hoof the black substance will scrape out but leave dark staining.
