    Does this mean that your adventure is over? Is your only option to turn around and return home? No, not you. You’ve prepared for this possibility. You dismount and pull a Scoot Boot out of your saddle bag.
    You’ve planned your entire trip out in detail. You’ve gotten time off work, found a sitter for your pets and planned meals for the family. You know where you’re leaving...

    Can Hoof Boots Aid in Navicular Recovery?

    Can Hoof Boots Aid in Navicular Recovery?
    Posted on
    A real advantage of keeping a horse barefoot is preserving his heels from all the friction and wear from moving against the shoe, according to farrier and veterinarian Stephen O’Grady of Northern Virginia Equine in the U.S, read how Hoof Boots can assist in navicular recovery.
    The horse’s heel is an exciting structure. Like the rest of the horse’s foot, it’s designed to absorb shock in a way that protects all the tissues above it all...

    Shoes were not really working for Dancealong. Despite being on high quality hoof supplements and balanced nutrition he has a slow rate of hoof growth. The hooves would crack up to the nail holes and the shoe would fall off taking out a big chunk of wall in the process.
    You have a 12 year old Grand Prix Dressage horse. Can you tell us a little bit more about him?  His paddock name is Christmas as he was born just...

    I have several horses that can go without, but the cool thing about the boots that I tried, out of the all the boot designs, Scoot Boots are very dynamic, they are more bendable, it’s like putting the perfect terrain underneath the horse for every step.

    What some brush off as minor mood swings, laziness, or “just too tired to move” could be clear indications that your horse is unbalanced in the hoof, causing a domino effect of stiffness, sharp pains or long-term soundness complications.
    What's the first thing you check when something is off with your horse? They’re not acting like themselves, are acting a little more crabby than usual and aren’t too keen...

    Yeast infections are the "more" of this article, and I see more of it than I'd certainly like to see and mostly it goes undiagnosed and untreated. What can happen is that the "mystery" lameness perpetuates and has even ended in premature euthanasia of the horse. 
    My last article I wrote was on "Thrush, White Line Disease and more ..." In the article, I discussed, briefly, how yeast can invade horses' hooves making them lame. Yeast...

    Posted on
    Thrush, White Line Disease and Yeast are an ongoing issue in areas that are warm and wet much of the time. These hoof conditions CAN be prevented with an equine appropriate diet of complex carbs (plants and forages), a lifestyle that allows for plenty of exercise over varied ground/terrain and allowances for 24/7 self-grazing/feeding. They can also be prevented with proper hoofcare where the hooves are balanced and in correct form for the hooves-in-hand on the horse-in-hand.
    What's the difference between white line disease, thrush and yeast in between the heel bulbs? Briefly we'll discuss the difference between these conditions and how to tell what is what....

    Very few domestic horses have the full-scale natural development from birth that allows them to be barefoot throughout the horse-human adventure. Some just don't have the genetics for it - bad hoof genes didn't get selected out over time, after all. Some didn't get the right conditioning during the critical growth periods. Some still don't have ideal management conditions due to various constraints that owners face in finding optimal housing for their horses. Many are in transition phases - which can last for months or years -
