This theme is one of the most spoken and discussed among the owners, coaches and keepers of the horses. The curious thing is that even being a relevant theme there is no scientific research on this topic, so the information that I will share below is the result of 26 years of experience with the shoeing of athletes horses.
The cracks of the walls, or exfoliation of the walls or weakening of walls has a lot do with the nutritional imbalance, genetic load, in the error of management and care in the hoofing, mainly in Sanitization of hulls and use of said Hull hydrating products.
The issue of nutrition is not related to the concentration and the exclusive amount of biotin, but rather with the concentration and supply of micro minerals that enter the formation and composition of the wall or walls and hence we reduce the options of supplementation available in Market. The offer of the correct supplementation in the cases of weakening of the walls helps a lot in the strengthening of these walls, but will not have the expected result if its the inly strategy.
The correct management of hulls is essential to avoid the emergence of dozens of problems and totally unnecessary expenses. The main error committed in the management that can cause this weakening is the excess "hydration" of the hulls with the use of grease. In fact the hulls in nature do not need external hydration because they adapt perfectly to the climatic differences but we, by placing these animals in stalls with limited space, force these changes and diminish the Adaptive ability of the hulls and we still make mistakes that thinking that a hull always has to be shined and shiny all the time.The use of these greases or hydrating products should not be daily and the basis of these products must be natural and non-mineral, the fat should be animal that facilitates the penetration into the hull wall. Whenever a hull is polished, this should occur when needed from 02 to 03 times per week, it should always be clean and dry, we should never polish the hull two or more times a day for any reason. Greases or moisturizers containing caustic products such as iodine should not be used.
The management of the horses ' beds is something that directly affects the hulls and the lack of proper care with the beds will weaken the walls and lead to the rotting and inflammation of the ranillas. It is very common that horses that stay in stalls and the hulls are not cleaned regularly causing the bed along with feces and urine to be accumulated in the sole of the hulls and all this material suffers a very large and fast natural fermentation that will affect directory The Ranillas and the walls causing the exfoliation of the same. The beds should be cleaned several times a day for removal of the excrement, the hulls should be cleaned with a specific tool called Ranilha Iron and a steel brush only for the removal of the material accumulated on the soles. No need to wash a hull with soap and water so that it stays clean or clean, just keep the bed clean and dry and at least 1x/day use the iron of Ranilha with the brush.
In the care with the shoeing the proper choice of the type of horseshoe for that hull, or better the correct width of this horseshoe for that Hull, this will promote greater protection of the hull and better distribution of the load on that hull, horseshoes very Increase the load on the walls and may cause exfoliation or cracking and the premature fall of the horseshoe. The height of the carnations is also another point to be observed because the lower carnations closest to the horseshoes also have the weakening of the walls and the premature fall of horseshoes.The carnations should preferably be positioned in the median range of this wall in order to have greater firmness and lower movement. Another curious point in this theme is the flies! Yes the flies, they irritate the horses too much causing them to hit with the hooves exaggerated against the ground and that repeatedly will weaken and assault the walls and weakening them. Since we cannot end the flies a solution that decreases the effect of the trauma is the placement of floors or rubber blankets in the common areas of areas and training centers such as bangers, veterinary area and Ferradoria.
Resources to reverse cases such as these exist and Univittá has contributed to this every day. Rich in trace elements the Foot Balance is a functional supplement for animals with hull problems, being one of the most concentrated products on the market, and back in Its important mineral composition for the health of hooves, live yeast, yeast cell wall, vitamins and mainly exclusive technology that directly involves the bioavailability of its trace elements. It is worth checking out, because in a few days the difference can already be noticed by your ferrador.
When we talk about hydration, we can not fail to talk about Sósebo, a product developed with the pure sebum of lamb, very concentrated and practical application because its presentation is in aerosol. It yields much more than conventional pastes and because it is easy to apply, it has its use guaranteed.
