There are a few ways to keep the hoof of the horse healthy. It always starts by movement of the horse. Due to the movement of a horse the hoof is always charged and then discharged. As result of this is the pressure in the hoof changes. These pressure changes stimulate the blood circulation system and the sustenance of the hoof.
Besides the movement of the horse, water is an important issue for the hooves. When the hooves do not get enough water, they can dry out and can crumble. This can be easily prevented by regularly spray the hooves with water. Another solution is to let our horse walking in a wet paddock frequently.
But watch out because If the hooves are too often wet (usually because a dirty stable), mud fever may be caused.
Keeping these two simple methods in mind, a hoof can stay healthy!
