Shoeing the Off-The-Track Thoroughbred

Good afternoon!

Thoroughbreds are notorious for not having the best feet. They can easily become brittle and crack easily, which makes them even more prone to throwing shoes. In today's blog we're featuring an article written by Jen Roytz that takes a deeper look into these hoof issues and how farriers and horse owners alike can guarantee their horses are receiving the best hoof care possible.

"Most modern-day Thoroughbreds' walls are thin, their feet tend to be on the brittle side, and many of them have a graduated heel, meaning one front hoof will grow heel more than the other during a shoeing cycle.”
