Dear Hoof-Care Professional,
Some horseowners who live in colder climates keep their horses in stalls in the winter, but these horses may face additional health and hoof-care problems. For example, they can obtain thrush from mud and snow, have poor digestion from eating less nutrients and may experience other serious issues.
So what do you do to maintain your horse, and its hooves, through the cold months? We’ve compiled a checklist of the dos and don’ts for horse owners who experience even the mildest winters. Use this to ensure that your horse stays healthy and strong for the spring. Every winter is different, but this serves as a great starting point and educational tool to help you and your horse prepare for winter weather.
Download this checklist today to establish the proper care for your horse through the winter months.

Yours for better hoof care,
