Senior Horse Hoof Care

Good afternoon!

As horses age, it's still important that they continue to receive regular attention from their farrier. Yes, older horses' hooves may grow more slowly, but that doesn't mean you should skip farrier visits. It's important to remember that hooves grow quicker at the toe than the heel, so any neglect will cause stress on the tendons and other joints. For older horses, this can be especially uncomfortable.

Kentucky Equine Research recently published an article that's a super great read, especially for senior horse owners. The article gives some good tips on how to keep an arthritic horse comfortable during an appointment and even dives into some nutrition tips that help their hooves healthy.
