As the shock-absorbing foundation for 1,000-pound animals, healthy hooves are critical to a horse’s mobility and health. Though we all strive to keep our horses’ hooves strong and free of defects, a few cracks, chips and dings are inevitable. Hoof blemishes are usually harmless, but some hoof cracks indicate a more serious problem. In this volume of EQUUS Extra, we describe the common types of hoof cracks and the best remedies for them, tips for keeping hooves healthy and how to handle a loose shoe.

Thunder in the Eastern Sierra Nevada
Have any of you folks that have subscribed to Equus for a long time been very dissipointed with them? I a couple years ago I Paid for 24 issues of E. I got a couple issues and then moved. The Post office was informed of my move from Saratoga Springs, UT to Springville, Ut; To Laney Vantassell 2452 West 500 So. Springville, ut 84663 I believe I only received one issue and I was not going to get the 24 I had paid for. I have been calling since April to please send me some of issues I have paid for . They keep telling me a date they would arrive on. This has happened over and over again and I have never received even 1 issue from them. Please do not order from them as they have been very dishonest with me. Thanis you. Lilian allred? Laney Jason VanTassell
How can I get a link to an article I wrote that was published in the Summer 2019 issue? I can't find it anywhere. Thanks!
